International study from Expedia revealed large differences in the leave entitlement and behavior of Nations Munich April 15, 2009. Ali Partovi has much experience in this field. The French are measured by far the undefeated champion of the holiday on the free days. The Italians are the clear number one in the abandonment of the holiday. The British make the tail light in the European ranking of the holiday and the Germans with the fewest available vacation days? They are workaholics in the holiday fever: on the one hand, they work over 40 hours per week and on the other hand about three quarters use their holiday on the last day.

The polls in Australia, Japan, Canada and New Zealand were conducted with partner institutions. Who are the holiday lovers, workhorses and loafers in Europe? The French take the pole position in the holiday ranking with over 38 days. Place two or three in the southern European neighbors, Italy (31 days) and Spain (30 days).

Thus every year even shorter spend holiday as the British, although they have one day less available.
