Holiyay! Get 46 Days Off Using Only 20 Days Holiday

How much of your time at work is spent wishing you were on a beach? Too much probably. Being restricted to 20-something days’ holiday a year is a sad fact we all have to get used to. Or do we…?

If you book smart and make the most of bank holidays and weekends, you can cheat the system and more than double your time away!

2019 is fast approaching, so here’s how to bag yourself 46 days away from your desk using only 20 days’ holiday (assuming bank holidays don’t count towards your holiday allowance).

19th-28th April 2019 (10 days)

Thanks to the two bank holidays and making the most of the two weekends either side, booking off 23rd-26th, you can get yourself 10 days off – only eating 4 days out of your holiday allowance.

Holiday allowance left: 16 days
