They say that May is the sunniest month of the year in the UK. You don’t really want to spend it indoors, do you? Here’s how to get more time for travelling with this simple bank holiday hack:
The Early May bank holiday on May 1st and the Bank holiday for the Coronation of King Charles III from May 8th will give you two long weekends. These are great all on their own, however if you’d like to maximise your annual leave you could take the following 8 days off and enjoy a total of 16 days of holiday time:
- Tuesday, May 2nd
- Wednesday, May 3rd
- Thursday, May 4th
- Friday, May 5th
- Tuesday, May 9th
- Wednesday, May 10th
- Thursday, May 11th
- Friday, May 12th
Soon after that comes Spring Bank Holiday, on May 29th, falling on a Monday, which will give you another 3-day weekend.
Travel tip: Greece is an excellent destination to explore in May, if you’re looking for both city and island vibes. The temperatures are mild and the beaches are not yet packed with tourists.
