The survey, carried out by on-line travel organization Expedia, took data from 24 countries and calculated that the average European worker gets 28 days annual leave.
This compares with UK workers who, although entitled to an average of 26 days, typically take 25 days.
This could be why three quarters of UK workers polled said that they felt ‘very or somewhat’ deprived of time off.
But when compared to the annual leave that workers in countries outside Europe are entitled to, the UK appears to be positively spoilt. American workers typically get only 14 days off. Thais get only 11 days holiday entitlement, and South Koreans workers take only seven of the 15 days to which they are entitled.
