Travel bug grips nation

Many workers are taking a long career break to go travelling, with Australia and New Zealand topping the list of destinations, new research shows.


More than one in 10 had already taken a break from work to travel, the survey of 2,000 people by Direct Line Travel Insurance revealed.


Three out of four said they would consider taking a lengthy break, with workers in the media and advertising most likely to travel.


Builders, and those in education, computing and the medical profession were least likely to have itchy feet.


Australia and New Zealand were the most popular countries to spend a long visit, followed by Europe and the US.


Direct Line business manager Chris Price, said: “Taking a sabbatical to travel the world is a great way to recharge the batteries and prioritise the important things in life. Many companies are now supporting their employees and giving them two to three months off to travel the world.”
