momondo data: Half of Americans Report ‘Post-Vacation Blues’

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–According to travel search engine,
half of Americans admit to having the “post-vacation blues.”

Based on momondo’s third annual International Travel Survey of 1009
Americans ages 18-65, 49% of respondents feel “sad” or in “low spirits”
after vacation. This is up from 39% via the same survey in 2015.
Additional findings include:

  • Women report feeling more down after a trip than men (52% vs. 45%)
  • 60% of respondents say they bring home something from vacation as a
    “souvenir” of the vacation
  • 31% of vacationers plan several days after they return from vacation
    before they start work/studying/school again

In addition, the survey found that other popular ways to ease the
transition are:

  • Sleep in later than usual (22%)
  • Eat healthier (19%)
  • Spend time with family and friends (18%)
  • Exercise more (16%)

“Many Americans go back to the fundamentals of self-care to ease the
post-vacation blues,” said Lasse Skole Hansen, spokesperson for momondo.
“Getting enough sleep, eating right and even cutting down on alcohol
seem to decrease the stress of ramping back up to work or school. We’ve
previously found that many Americans use searching for their next
holiday to combat their post-holiday blues.”
