Work vs. play: 17% stay while 83% getaway
The new survey (*TNS Global) reveals 83% plan to go on vacations in the near future (93% for those who >$75k/year). And 6 in 10 go on vacations yearly while 27% go on more than one vacation a year, but that drops to less than 21% for those ages 40-49. Even still, 17% say they “never” go on a vacation, increasing to more than 21% for those aged 40-49 and a whopping 35% for those who earn less than $30k/year.
