We all want to make the most of our annual leave by booking tactically so we can enjoy time with our families or on holiday.
Some of the best times to book a few days off utilise bank holidays, weekends and national holidays.
In some cases booking three work days off will get you over a week off in a row because of this clever tactic.
And, if you start booking your holidays right now you could get a whopping 38 days off during the rest of 2022.
And, you only need to book off 15 days to do it!
So, if you’ve used up some of your annual leave already this year you should still be able to achieve it.
However, if you work shifts or do not get weekends or bank holidays off work automatically then this will not work for you.
The first step is to take note of when the rest of the year’s bank holidays are.
As we get an extra one for the Queen’s platinum jubilee there are six left for the rest of this year.
The bank holidays include:
- 2 May (Early May bank holiday)
- 2 June (Spring bank holiday)
- 3 June (Platinum Jubilee bank holiday)
- 29 August (Summer bank holiday)
- 26 December (Boxing day)
- 27 December (Christmas substitute)
If you’re able to book time off last minute you could still snap up April 25 to 29 which would take up five days of annual leave, but give you 10 days off work.
That sounds like the perfect length of time to spend on a beach somewhere…
If you then book May 30 and 31 as well as June 1 you’ll have a nice nine day stretch at home using just three days of leave.
While you’ll also get nine days to relax if you book off August 30 to September 2!
At the end of the year using your Christmas leave to book off December 28, 29 and 30 you’ll have 10 whole days to spend with the family.
But, remember, many of these dates will be in high demand among colleagues so make sure you get your leave requests in ASAP.
