Nearly everyone loves a vacation, but some people are ashamed to actually take one. Travelers between the ages of 18 to 34, or millennials, feel the most guilt for planning or taking a vacation, according to the Alamo Family Vacation Survey.
The survey showed 59 percent of millennials feel a sense of shame for going on vacations, compared to 41 percent of those 35 and older who feel the same way.
Although these younger travelers are uneasy about taking trips themselves, they still admit to shaming their co-workers. Forty-two percent of millennials admitted to vacation shaming their co-workers, while only 24 percent of older people did the same.
But, it appears all workers experienced guilt in one way or another. Forty-seven percent of all workers felt shame for taking time off to go on a vacation. But, there does seem to be balance. Another 47 percent of workers also said they don’t feel the need to justify why they’re using up their vacation days.
Alamo polled more than 1,000 people nationwide back in January for its Family Vacation Survey.
