Americans wasting vacation days at work

Posted: Updated:

A survey by Alamo Rent a Car finds 4 in 10 Americans don't use all of their paid vacation days.

When asked why, 47 percent said they were too busy to work to take off.

Half of those surveyed said they don't unplug while on vacation, with 1 in 4 reporting they worked every day of their vacations.

The study also revealed some interesting travel trends.

About 30 percent of Americans prefer beach vacations or somewhere sunny and warm -- beating out theme parks, cruises and ski trips.

About 50 percent use screen time on vacation to keep everyone entertained during the flight or drive to their destination.

And dads are more likely than moms to approve the use of electronic devices for their children while on vacation.
