More than half of Americans 'not taken a holiday in last year' poll shows

More than half of Americans have not taken a holiday in the last year, new data reveals.

Over 170 million people (53%) have not taken a leisure break in the past 12 months.

This is down three points from 2015, when 56% of respondents had reported not having taken a vacation in a year.

Even among those who say an annual holiday is important, 41% have not been away for at least a year, according to the seventh annual Allianz Travel Insurance vacation holiday index.

The survey revealed that just 15% of Americans have been on a vacation in the last three months - down one point since 2015 - while 16% have not been on holiday in one to two years.

More than a third (37%) have not been on holiday in more than two years  - down four points.

An Allianz Global Assistance USA spokeswoman said: “We’ve only seen the slightest increase in Americans taking a vacation this year.

“Our findings show that Americans continue to be plagued by an alarming vacation deficit.”
