How to Make the Most Out Of Your Annual Leave in 2022

Looking to make the most of your annual leave in 2022? At the start of the new year, it is worthwhile taking a look at when the holidays fall so that you can maximise your annual leave – this is particularly important if you want a holiday, like most will this year! So, what days should you be taking off to make the most out of your time off?

A Long Easter

The first time to really make the most out of your annual leave is around Easter Weekend, which is the 15th to the 18th of April this year. You can enjoy 10 whole days off work simply by using 4 annual leave days from the 19th through to the 22nd. 

May & June

By booking off the 3rd to the 6th of May, you can enjoy 9 days off at the start of the month thanks to the 2nd being a Bank Holiday – perfect for a staycation. Just a few weeks later, you can enjoy the 28th through to the 5th of June off just by booking the 30th, 31st and 1st off to take advantage of 2 Bank holidays on the 2nd and 3rd of June.

August & September

Booking the 30th of August through to the 2nd of September will allow you to enjoy the 27th through to the 4th for a later summer vacation thanks to a Bank holiday on the 29th.


Christmas may seem like an eternity away, but you will thank yourself for planning ahead to make the most of the holidays. Christmas falls on the weekend this year moving the Bank holiday to the 27th, so you simply want to book off the 28th to the 30th to be off from Christmas Eve through to the 2nd of Jan.

The Benefits of Doing Something With Annual Leave

The above will allow you to really make the most out of your annual leave and enjoy some decent time off of work. Annual leave is incredibly important for taking a break, recharging and focusing on important areas of your life. Planning ahead is key and this could allow you to go on a few holidays this year, such as an Easter vacation where you can escape to a beautiful part of the UK and exchange Easter gifts with your loved ones.

Hopefully, this post will help you to plan ahead and make the most out of your annual year so that you can have a relaxing, fun-filled and less stressful year.
