Sundance Vacations Encourages you to #PlanForVacation
January 28, 2019 is National Plan for Vacation Day, a national movement from Project Time Off to help Americans shift the culture so that taking time off is understood as essential to personal well-being, professional success, business performance, and economic expansion!
More than half of American workers (55%) failed to use all their time off last year. That’s a stockpile of 768 million unused vacation days just in 2018, of which 236 million were forfeited completely.
What’s the key to using more vacation time? Planning. But nearly half of American households (46%) don’t do this simple step—and they lose out on their time off and the benefits it brings.
“The beginning of the year is the time to pull out the calendar and start planning for the entire year. Before you know it, life happens, and you may find yourself in November with weeks left to use and simply not enough time left in the year to schedule them,” said Roger Dow, president and CEO of U.S. Travel Association, the organization rallying the industry around this nationwide event. “National Plan for Vacation Day is the perfect reminder for Americans to plan to use those well-earned days off to explore this great nation. From the beaches of Puerto Rico to the Montana mountain tops, America truly has something for every travel style and budget.”
Using vacation days to travel could also improve the U.S. economy, create American jobs and have a positive impact on our health and overall well-being. In fact, if Americans used all their time off to travel, our economy could see a boost of $151.5 billion in travel spending and an additional 2 million U.S. jobs.
“Sundance Vacations is celebrating National Plan for Vacation Day to encourage Americans to take their well-deserved time off,” said Tina Dowd, Co-Owner of Sundance Vacations. “And what better way to take a day than to travel? By committing to planning on January 28, Americans can all enjoy the many benefits of taking a break while giving themselves something to look forward to—and Sundance Vacations has some great ideas to help you plan your perfect getaway.”
To help employees get their vacation days on the calendar, U.S. Travel Association has created a Vacation Planning Tool. By simply entering the number of days off they earn, users can plot out their trips or vacations for the year, export to their work or personal calendar and share with their friends, family and co-workers.
National Plan for Vacation Day takes place during the last Tuesday in January as a day to encourage Americans to plan their vacation days for the rest of the year at the start of the year.
