NSW residents, are you always running out of annual leave? Us too. Get 50 days of holiday time in 2017 – from only 20 days of annual leave.
Do you wish you could have more than one holiday a year? Are you keen for an extended Europe trip, but also want a couple of city breaks throughout the year? Well, we *think* we’ve cracked it and you can have both.
With a bit of holiday-hacking know-how and well-thought-out annual leave planning, you can physically be away on holiday for a whopping 50 days of 2017 – with no unpaid leave.
Twenty days is the legal minimum for full-time employees in Australia, so this hack is possible for any full-time employee. Just book the days off early, before your colleagues discover this super-simple idea too.
In those 50 days off work you could do all of this in just one year:
- A 2-day post-New Year’s spa break in Byron Bay
- A 4-day summer mini break in Bali
- 23 days backpacking across Europe
- A 3-day winter ski break in New Zealand
- 9 days sun-seeking in Hawaii
- 9 days off to visit family at Christmas
Take off the following days in italics as annual leave:
Monday 2nd (Public Holiday)
Total run: 2 days
Thursday 26th (Public Holiday – Australia Day)
Total run: 4 days
Friday 14th (Public Holiday – Good Friday)
Monday 17th (Public Holiday – Easter Monday)
Tuesday 25th (Public Holiday – Anzac Day)
Total run: 23 days
Monday 12th (Public Holiday – Queen’s Birthday)
Total run: 3 days
September & October
Monday 2nd (Public Holiday – Labour Day)
Total run: 9 days
Monday 25th (Public Holiday – Christmas Day)
Tuesday 26th (Public Holiday – Boxing Day)
Total run: 9 days
That's a lot of travelling.
