The start of a brand new year means you have a whole new slate of annual leave days.

We all know that January can be a slow month so, it's a good time to start planning your 2020 holidays and have something to look forward to.

If you get organised and request your days off early, you could effectively double your annual leave this year.

Here's how:

Easter 2020

This year, Easter falls on Sunday April 12th. Monday the 13th is a Bank Holiday so, if you book off April 14th, 15th, 16th and 17th, you'll get nine days off in a row using just four days of annual leave.

If your company gives you Good Friday off, that means you get ten days holidays!

Christmas 2020

Christmas Day and St Stephen's Day fall on a Friday and Saturday respectively in 2020. This means you'll get a day off on Monday, December 28th.

So, if you book off December 21st, 22nd, 23rd, 24th along with December 29th, 30th and 31st, you'll end up with 16 days of annual leave, using just seven holiday days thanks to the Bank Holiday for New Year's Day.

Time to get planning!
