This is about annual leave and being a bit savvy ! In 2018, Monday May 7 and Monday May 28 are both bank holidays. If leave you leave work on Friday May 4 and come back from your holiday on May 29 – that’s almost a whole month. From May 5 to May 28, you’ll only need to use fourteen days of leave.
If you make your last day Friday March 23 and come back on April 9, you’ll use just eight days of leave on a 14-day holiday. This does include Good Friday and Easter Monday so you may pay a premium for any holidays. And children will be off as well so you have to remember that.
My holiday next year is limited as I am due to be made redundant. So I have to wait and see what happens otherwise I am very tempted with the May block leave. But we will see what happens !
