The Japanese and South Koreans are the world’s most “vacation-deprived” when it comes to taking off days, while the French are the least, Expedia said in its 13th annual Vacation Deprivation Study.

Americans also take relatively few vacation days compared to the rest of the world.

The Japanese take just seven of their allotted 18 annual vacation days on average, while South Koreans use seven of their possible 10 days off.

Americans on average leave four of their allotted 14 vacation days on the table, Expedia said.

On the flipside, the French typically take all 30 vacation days allotted. Still, about nine in 10 of the French respondents said they felt “vacation-deprived.”

Expedia said it polled more than 8,500 workers worldwide.
