How much vacation time do you get.

Jump to last reply

I posted a thread asking people how well they know there own countries. It turned out to be a very interesting eye opener.

It got me thinking, many of the posters talked of spending what seemed like an apreciable amount of time travelling. On this forum we all come from different countries with different holiday entitlements and as it is a forum centered around travel and vacation can I pose the question -

How many days holiday/vacation do you get a year?

And of the time you get how many days/weeks do you take together?

To start the ball rolling in Ireland the average holiday entitlement is 20 days a year. I get 25 after working in the same company for 7 years. I hear that in some European countries they get nearly 40 days a year on average, France being an example.

How many do you get, where you are????
