Working From Home Allows Americans to Travel More

image (1)

A shift to working from home is bound to be one of the lasting effects of the pandemic, and it seems to be popular with workers. According to Priceline’s latest Work-Life Balance Report, 40% of Americans prefer to work from home full time, and 66% said that they feel encouraged to explore new destinations while working from home. This new work culture is blurring the lines between work and vacation time with the increase in popularity of the “workcation.”

Six in ten Americans surveyed reported being encouraged to take more workcations while working from home, and 34% said that they had extended a trip because they now have the freedom to work from anywhere. And now that Americans feel like they can travel again, they are doing so with a vengeance—planning to take advantage of remote work to travel more (66%) and using up all available paid time off during the year (82%).
