Breaks over: more Aussies going over a year without a holiday

October 11, 2013 Statistics & Trends No Comments Email Email

Over a third of Australians now haven’t had a holiday in over a year, the latest research from Roy Morgan shows.

For the 12 months to August 2013, 35% of Australians 14+ had no holiday within the past year, up from 31% in August 2008.

Even Aussies who can’t do without at least some time away are going less often: the proportion of us taking three or more trips a year is down 5% points to 36%, while the proportion heading off only annually or twice a year is up 1% point to 29%.

For New Zealanders the picture is similar, with fewer taking holidays since the global financial crisis. In the 12 months to August 2013, 30% of New Zealanders did not take a holiday within the past year, up from 25% in 2008.
