ABTA: Sunticipation makes Brits more productive at work
Many Brits are motivated to work better if they have a holiday booked, it has been suggested.

ABTA – The Travel Association claims that a feeling of 'sunticipation' is created from looking forward to a summer holiday and a break from work.

Because this can be quite strong workers can be more productive as for many people, their holiday is valued above other things they spend their money on.

Frances Tuke, a spokesperson person for ABTA, said people need holidays to take a break from workplace pressure "but also spend valuable time with their loved ones and families which they would not be able to do in a normal working week".

People in England currently have the highest number of working hours in Europe.

The recent ABTA Holiday Value Report revealed that for 50 per cent of respondents, a break from routine is vital to escape the pressures of the credit crunch.
