Leisure vs. Money vs. Workaholics..."17% never go on vacations"
FatWallet 2014 Vacation Spending Survey:
The new survey (*TNS Global) reveals 83% stated they do go on vacations (93% for those who +$75k/year) and 59% said they go on vacations every year, with 27% that go on multiple vacations yearly (less than 21% for those ages 40-49). Still, 17% said they “never” go on vacation and those numbers increase to +21% ages 40-49 and +35% for those who earn less than $30k/year. See INFOGRAPHIC.
Other interesting vacation spending trends report nearly half planning to spend more than $1,500, and 13% more than $3,000. (A survey from American Express last year forecast an average spend of $1,145 in 2013.) The majority will book online from +100 stores offering travel deals with cash back.
