National Plan for Vacation Day

January 25, 2022


National Plan for Vacation Day, celebrated on the last Tuesday of January, is a day to encourage Americans to plan their time off. Join us on January 25 and help get Americans to commit their time off for the rest of the year at the start of the year. Regardless of travel style, our country offers something for everyone.

Facts about Vacation

Americans who plan out their time off take more time off—but one-quarter (24%) of American households don’t do this simple step. As a result, they lose or have to forfeit these days. NPVD comes at a time when American workers report feeling extreme levels of burnout. According to Destination Analysts, more than two-thirds (68%) of American workers feel at least moderately burned out, and 13% are extremely burned out.  Taking time off benefits Americans - it’s essential to a person’s overall wellbeing: it strengthens personal relationships, improves professional performance, and promotes overall health and wellness. The best way to encourage American workers to use all their vacation days—AND use many of those days to travel—is to encourage planning in advance.
