Travel Yourself Better with a Spring Break

September 4, 2017 OTA News No Comments Email Email

Today leading online travel site, Wotif.com released its latest research report looking at the impact a holiday has on our work selves, while unlocking the formula for the perfect holiday. The Wotif Travel Yourself Better Report uncovers that although 96% of Australian workers report feeling recharged to some extent after a holiday, the feeling is gone by hump day (3.2 days), proving the need for Aussies to travel themselves better.

To maximise that post-holiday feeling, the report uncovers that we don’t need to rely on a long trip to feel refreshed, with multiple mini-breaks the key to holiday success. Taking four or more mini-breaks over a 12-month period increases your recharge levels by a huge 18%, when compared to the national average. While getting away for a week or more increases your recharge levels by 9%, it is the humble mini-break and multiple of them, that prove to be the optimal way to recharge the batteries.

With spring in full bloom, it is now the perfect time to book in a long weekend away. The inaugural report reveals Australian workers who took a spring mini-break within Australia felt 7% more recharged than the national average.

Wotif Travel Specialist, Amanda Behre says: “While summer is the most popular season for Aussie workers to take a holiday, it’s interesting to see that opting to go on a mini-break just a few months earlier, will not only likely save you money by travelling outside of peak summer periods, but will make you feel more refreshed on your return. With the October long weekend soon approaching and September school holidays only a few weeks away, it’s time we packed our bags and gave the humble weekend away the credit it deserves.”

The research also reminds us of the importance of taking a holiday for our work selves, with 69% of Australians experiencing greater tolerance in the workplace and women more likely (51%) to refrain from snapping at an annoying colleague. Workplace morale and engagement is also boosted, with almost two in three (64%) Australians admitting they feel more committed to their careers after a holiday. Of these workers, Millennials see the most benefit from a holiday, with 46% of Gen Y less inclined to quit their job and 43% more likely to embrace a career challenge.

The Travel Yourself Better Report shows Australian workers will take on average of 3.4 holidays per year (mini-breaks of 2-3 days and long holidays) with each holiday an average of six nights in length. This equates to more than 160 million days spent on holidays over the last year.
