How to book 47 days holiday in 2023 using just 19 days of annual leave | The Sun

WORKERS can enjoy 47 days of holiday in 2023 by taking just 19 days of annual leave by making the most of Bank Holidays.

Next year there are eight Bank Holidays throughout the year, giving millions a well-earned break.

If you have a 9 to 5 job, Monday to Friday, then you can make your holiday stretch further by booking these exact dates, according to marketing agency Unearth PR.

Most workers who work five days a week are legally entitled to 28 days' paid leave a year.

That's equivalent to 5.6 days of holiday.

Before you book any of these dates off, check that you get all your Bank Holidays off by your employer – otherwise the trick won't work.
