How to DOUBLE your annual leave in 2020 and turn 28 into 60 days off work by booking around bank holidays – The Sun

WANT to enjoy 60 days of holiday next year by only booking 28 days of annual leave?

A clever new guide reveals exactly how you can maximise your days off work in 2020 by doing some strategic booking.

The average Brit has just 28 days of leave to take each year, but you can turn this into 60 days including weekends.

Firstly you can jet away in December and January on a 14-day holiday using just seven holiday days over December 23 to January 5.

Then in April, do an 11-day holiday by booking off just five days across April 9 to 19.

And then in May you can take an 18-day holiday using up just 10 days over May 8 to 25.

This is followed by a nine-day break in August/September using four days of holiday, and eight days next December/January using two days.

If you follow the plan you will use just 28 days and have 60 days of either jetting away or enjoying beauty spots right on your doorstep.

Research by Forest Holidays found that shockingly two in five employees only used half of their allocated holiday leave last year.

This was due to workers feeling guilty handing work to colleagues or being scared about falling behind.
