Jagmohan Garg noted Delhi in dire need of a break

The Capital’s residents are the most vacation-deprived among those living in big cities

Delhiites, it appears, are the most vacation deprived among the largest cities in the country, according to a recent survey.


According to the results of the “2016 Vacation Deprivation” study, an annual survey of vacation habits across multiple countries and cities conducted by online travel company Expedia, Delhiites are taking the least amount of vacation days of the total vacations received (about 71 per cent).

Under pressure

The survey results state that Delhiites seem to be coming under a lot of pressure in the work space, be it peers (13 per cent) and managers (15 per cent) who don’t use all their vacation time or the bosses, who are least supportive of taking vacation days (18 per cent not supportive).

However, when Delhiites are on a vacation, nothing can stop them using technology to post check-ins (72 per cent) and photos of their vacation (67 per cent) on social media and they are the happiest lot- getting a lot of ‘Likes’ or comments on social media posts about their vacation, the survey says.

“It gives them more happiness to meet new people (63 per cent), than spending time with the ones they are travelling (56 per cent),” said Manmeet Ahluwalia, the marketing head of Expedia in India.
