How to get 18 days off work for the price of nine next year

The average Britain thinks about leaving their job up to 16 times a year and spends over 3,507 days at work in a lifetime, according to a survey.

With Brits spending so much time at work, it’s little surprise that they regularly re-evaluate their work/life balance. It’s fair to say that a few days extra holiday can help halt employees making a sharp exit due to work dissatisfaction.

Fortunately there's a silver lining ahead, as next year holds a free pass to extra holiday days - thanks to the way the bank holidays fall in April 2019. It is in fact possible to have 18 consecutive days off work, using just nine days of annual leave. This can be achieved by strategically booking holiday around bank holidays.
