Give your holiday leave a little bump with this simple hack!

We all want more holidays in our lives and now Contiki has shared a handy calendar that reveals the best time to take annual leave so you get more bang for your buck.

Next year, you can take 42 days off and only use 20 annual leave days. You may wonder how this is possible but it's a very clever formula that incorporates plotting your holidays around weekends and public holidays.

Contiki break it down for you:

  • Australia Day 24 January 2020 to 27 January 2020 - Apply for (1) day of leave, get (4) days off
  • Easter Break 4 April 2020 to 19 April 2020 - Apply for (8) days of leave, get (16) days off
  • Queen’s Birthday Long Weekend 6 June 2020 to 14 June 2020 - Apply for (4) days of leave, get (9) days off
  • Christmas Break 19 December 2020 to 31 December 2020 - Apply for (7) days of leave, get (13) days off
