SYDNEY, Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Do you get enough holidays? With the festive season fast approaching, this question can derive contentious responses. In fact, 82% of Australians say they don't get adequate time to holiday, according to online travel agent ZUJI.com.au.
This finding came, following recent research conducted by ZUJI involving more than 1,800 people.
The research also highlighted the blurring line between work and play, says Managing Director of ZUJI APAC, James Gaskell:
"75% admitted they research hotels and holidays while at work, 50% spending more than 10 hours of work time per trip. 33% say they would spend more work time researching their travel if they didn't have to worry about getting caught."
However Gaskell says Australians are also very conscientious: "More than 60% of Australians say they regularly monitor their work emails via a mobile device while on holiday."
