Travel expert, Samantha Brown, has some good news about travel, as well as a ‘needs for improvement’ update. Samantha said, “American travelers are getting much better about taking vacations, but in 2018 more than 705 million vacation days went unused! This means 52% of Americans are leaving their paid time off on the table!” Planning for vacation is the first step to make sure you don’t lose your precious time off.

According to Project Time Off, Americans who use all of their vacation days report being much happier with their personal relationships and their overall well-being.

So, since it’s a brand new year, now is the time to call all fellow HGV travelers! Mark your calendars for Tuesday, January 29, 2019. It’s our new favorite holiday – National Plan for Vacation Day!
