Annual Leave Hack. 22 Annual leave days for 52 days holiday!

Updated: Nov 9, 2021



I don't know about you but annual leave and holidays in 2021 just didn't holiday enough. Between vaccinations and the RAG list of countries to travel, there was too much uncertanity which meant a lot of people, like me, really had to make the most of UK holidays. Start of Autumn officially marks the end of summer in the UK (for me anyways) it is the perfect time to start thinking about annual leave for 2022.


I am about to upgrade your annual leave game with clever planning - combining weekends, annual leave and bank holidays, you can maximise your time off and get 52 days off using just 22 annual leave days.


Oh! Did I mention...we also get an extra bank holiday in 2022 to mark the Queen's 70 years on the throne! The bonus bank holiday falls on Friday June 3.



Take 4 days leave to enjoy 9 consecutive days off

  • Saturday 1 January: New Year's Day

  • Sunday 2 January: Weekend

  • Monday 3 January: Bank Holiday

  • Tuesday 4 January: Annual Leave

  • Wednesday 5 January: Annual Leave

  • Thursday 6 January: Annual Leave

  • Friday 7 January: Annual Leave

  • Saturday 8 January: Weekend

  • Sunday 9 January: Weekend


4 days leave to enjoy 10 consecutive days off

  • Friday 15 April: Bank holiday

  • Saturday 16 April: Weekend

  • Sunday 17 April: Weekend

  • Monday 18 April: Bank holiday

  • Tuesday 19 April: Annual leave

  • Wednesday 20 April: Annual leave

  • Thursday 21 April: Annual leave

  • Friday 22 April: Annual leave

  • Sunday 24 April: Weekend


Another 4 days leave bags you 9 consecutive days off

  • Saturday 30 April: Weekend

  • Sunday 1 May: Weekend

  • Monday 2 May: Bank Holiday

  • Tuesday 3 May: Annual leave

  • Wednesday 4 May: Annual leave

  • Thursday 5 May: Annual leave

4 days gives you 9 consecutive days off (festival season!)

  • Saturday 27 August: Weekend

  • Sunday 28 August: Weekend

  • Monday 29 August: Bank holiday

  • Tuesday 30 August: Annual leave

  • Wednesday 31 August: Annual leave

  • Thursday 1 September: Annual leave

  • Friday 2 September: Annual leave

  • Saturday 3 September: Weekend

  • Sunday 4 September: Weekend



Lastly, take 3 days annual leave for a 10 day break over the festive period.


Saturday 24 December: Weekend

Sunday 25 December: Christmas Day (weekend)

Monday 26 December: Bank holiday (Boxing Day)

Tuesday 27 December: Bank holiday

Wednesday 28 December: Annual leave

Thursday 29 December: Annual leave

Friday 30 December: Annual leave

Saturday 31 December: Weekend

Sunday 1 January: Weekend

Monday 2 January: Bank holiday



.... and if you really want a longer break, and your annual leave runs from January to December, you can take an additional 4 days leave (in 2023) to extend your break to 16 days off.



Tuesday 3 January: Annual leave

Wednesday 4 January: Annual leave

Thurday 5 January: Annual leave

Friday 6 January: Annual leave

Saturday 7 January: Weekend

Sunday 8 January: Weekend



It goes without saying that not everyone in the whole company can be off at the same time, so you better get booking!
