daycation noun [C]
/deɪ.ˈkeɪ.ʃən/
a day trip, usually to a hotel or similar resort, where you use the facilities for the day then go home at night

As the name implies, a daycation is about getting away from your hectic life and enjoying all the amenities of a real vacation without all the extra travel or expenses. The service is growing in popularity in cities like Miami where luxury pools and spas are a staple at just about every beachside hotel.

jobbymoon noun [C]
UK /ˈdʒɒb.i.muːn/ US /ˈdʒɑː.bi.muːn/
a holiday that you take in the period between leaving one job and starting a new one

In a busy world where employees are so overworked they routinely fail to take the holiday time they are entitled to, a jobbymoon presents a unique opportunity to review achievements and reassess priorities.

    I LIKE THESE NEW WORDS: I WOULD LIKE TO ADD IN CAMBRIDGE DICTIONARY: I USE AND REFER FOR ACCURATE MENAING TO ENGLISH WORDS.

    Some hotels in Japan already have microstay and it’s called “day use.” It’s probably a way to increase hotel’s occupancy rate and revenue.
