An extra bank holiday this year means Brits can bag 54 days of annual leave by booking just 22 days off.
So how do you do it?!
Well, the bonus bank hol - to celebrate the Queen's 70th year on the throne - falls on Friday 3rd June, while the late May bank holiday has been moved to Thursday 2nd June - essentially giving Brits a four-day holiday.
Which effectively means we can book three days off and get a whopping nine days of annual leave!
Here's how to do it:
Brits have already enjoyed one bank holiday this year, which fell on Monday 3rd January in lieu of New Year's Day which fell on a Saturday; if you had booked the 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th off, you'd have had nine days off in total.
In April, there's a four-day weekend to look forward to, with the Easter weekend falling on 15-18th April. If you book the days off around Easter (19th-22nd) you'll be able to snap up 10 days off in total!
Next up, workers can take three days off in early summer - 30th-31st May as well as 1st June - which would equate to another nine days of holiday if you include the extra long June bank hol for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee weekend.
Similarly, in August, you could bag another nine days out of the office thanks to the bank holiday on 29th August. All you need to do is take off 30th-31st August as well as 1st and 2nd September.
Looking forward to next Christmas, the big day falls on a Sunday, which means Boxing Day will be on a Monday and Tuesday 27th December will be marked as the delayed bank holiday.
Which means if you book off the 28-30th December, you can get eight days off (or 10 days if you include Sunday 1st January and Monday 2nd January).
Happy holidays guys!
