Easter 2019 is sorted. Book nine days off and get a blissful 18 days off. Bali anyone?
This one’s all thanks to how bank holidays happen to fall in 2019. You will need to book from Friday 19th April 2019 to Monday 6th May 2019. This is because Friday 19th April, Monday 22nd April and Monday 6th May are all bank holidays.
Additionally April 21, 22, 27 and 28th plus May 4 and 5 are all weekends so do not count as time off.
Therefore you actually need to book off April 23, 24, 25, 26, 29, 30 and May 1,2,3.
So long as your employer recognises bank holidays as days off, you will bag yourself 18 days off in a row for just nine days of annual leave.
Extend that summer holiday by taking your days over the bank holiday and relax in the sunshine for ten days and take just five off. That’s the life!
