Planning your holidays well in advance has many benefits, especially for those who are restricted to school holidays. Early planning often means obtaining the best priced airline seats in the cabin of choice, securing family/interconnecting rooms and taking advantage of early booking offers.
Even if you're not quite ready to start planning the actual holiday it's important for those who have to juggle holiday booking with the rest of their work team to secure the dates that will get you the most time away for the least amount of holiday days.
These suggestions are based on a Monday to Friday working week and of course getting UK bank holidays off as part of your contract. Certainly not rocket science but hopefully a useful and time saving guide!
