You might feel like you hardly get any time off work, so when eventually it’s time to pack your suitcase and head off on a long-overdue holiday, it’s important you make the very most of it.
For example, rather than stressing on public transport to get to the airport, why not drive instead?
It’s now easier than ever to take advantage of car parking in Leeds Bradford Airport and this is the perfect way to start your vacation.
The fewest paid and public holidays in Europe
It seems you may be justified in thinking you don’t benefit from enough time away from work. According to figures collected by booking website Hotels.com, Britons get some of the fewest paid and public holidays in Europe.
Workers in the UK are granted around 28 days off each year. This compares with 40 days in Russia. Meanwhile, residents in Italy and Sweden are allowed at least 36 days away from the office per annum.
The average number of days off counting minimum annual leave on top of public holidays was 33 across Europe. This means that UK workers lose out on a whole working week away from the office in comparison.
Could be worse
On the plus side, it could be worse. On a global scale, Mexicans were found to have the lowest number of holidays, with a total of 13 days given to workers in the country. Also, while Brits are given 20 days of annual leave by their employers, people in China, Thailand and Taiwan get just five, six and seven days of annual leave respectively.
Commenting on the findings, Alison Couper from Hotels.com said: “Despite UK workers receiving the least amount of bank holidays and annual leave amongst their European counterparts, they can at least take some comfort from the fact that it’s not the most hard done by nation globally, with Mexicans receiving a mere 13 days’ holiday a year. It’s fascinating to think what we could do with an extra 12 days’ holiday a year, like those who live and work in Russia!”
