There are plenty of opportunities to maximize your holiday days in 2022. Below we have laid out when to take your hard-earnt days off to maximize your time away from the office.
TIP: Book off: April 11th to 14th and April 19th to 22nd to get April 9th to April 24th
Booking eight days in April could allow those who work Monday to Friday to get 16 days off work.
Good Friday falls on April 15, with Easter Monday on April 18, so booking four days off either side leads to a 16-day break.
This means you get Saturday 9 April to Sunday 24 April off for eight days annual leave.
WHERE TO GO IN APRIL: Caribbean (Sun) // Alps (Snow)
TIP: Book off: May 3 to May 6 to get April 30 to May 8 off
Booking four days off after May 2 – the May Day bank holiday – gives nine days off for the price of four.
This means you get Saturday April 30 to Sunday May 8 for four days of annual leave
WHERE TO GO IN MAY: Europe (City Break) // Botswana (Safari)
TIP: Book off: May 30 to June 1 to get off May 28 to June 5
This year is the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee which means the nation will get an extra bank holiday.
While February 6 will mark her 70 years on the throne, Britain won’t celebrate until June, when a four-day weekend is planned for festivities.
To make that work, the May Bank Holiday weekend will be moved to Thursday, June 2, while Friday, June 3, will be turned into a bank holiday.
With June’s Platinum Jubilee weekend, if you book off May 30 to June 1, you get nine days off for just three of annual leave.
WHERE TO GO IN JUNE: San Sebastian (Couples) // Balaeric Islands (Family/Friends)
TIP: Book off: August 30 to September 2 to get August 27 to September 4 off
Taking Tuesday to Friday off following the Monday August 29th bank holiday offers another opportunity for nine days off for just four.
This means you get Saturday August 27 to Sunday September 4 for four days annual leave.
WHERE TO GO IN SEPTEMBER: South Africa (Garden Route) // Greece (Couples / Young Families)
Book off: December 28 to December 30 to get December 24 to January 2 off
As in 2021, with Christmas Day falling on a weekend its good news for the holiday season.
December 25 is on a Sunday, so Boxing Day falls on a bank holiday, which in turn makes Tuesday December 27 a bank holiday.
New Years Day 2023 also falls on a weekend meaning January 2, 2023 is also a bank holiday.
So by booking December 28 to 30 off, you can get a whopping 10 days off in a row. This means you get December 24 to January 2 for just three days of annual leave.
WHERE TO GO IN DECEMBER: Maldives (Sun) // The Alps (Snow)
