How you could book nine days off and get 18

Shhhhh... Don't tell the boss. But if you time it right, you could book nine days annual leave and get twice that amount of time off.
It's all thanks to Easter weekend falling late this year, which brings it closer to the Early May Bank Holiday.
If you book the nine week days between Tuesday, April 18 and Friday, April 28, you can add three weekends and three bank holidays on to your total - meaning 18 consecutive days off.
Your last day at work would be Thursday, April 13, as the following day is the Good Friday bank holiday.
The following Monday is also a bank holiday, Easter Monday, while the Early May bank Holiday, on May 1, means your break would end the following day, with you going back to work on Tuesday, May 2.
If you've missed a trick and your colleagues have got in first don't despair. The next time the Easter bank holiday weekend and May Bank Holiday come close again will be in 2019.
