Despite the improving fortunes of workers here, Portuguese are among the European citizens who struggle the most to spend a week’s holiday away from home.

Figures out this morning reveal that 47 percent of Portuguese say they cannot afford to go on vacation. Only countries from the former Eastern Bloc, Greece and Cyprus reported worse numbers.
However, the figure for Portugal has improved greatly since 2008, when almost two-thirds said they were unable to book a holiday.
