Next year’s bank holidays may feel like a long way away, but now really is a great time to book a trip over a bank holiday weekend in 2013. Bank holidays and public holidays are extremely popular times of year to take a trip, so booking early is the best way to ensure that you get the holiday cottage that you want.
Plan ahead for a great bank holiday weekend
Many of the bank holidays fall into the school holidays meaning that New Year, Easter, May and Christmas are already some of the most popular times to take a holiday. Plan ahead to avoid disappointment and to ensure that you have the widest choice of holiday cottages.

Make the most of long weekends
The extra day off work means that a bank holiday is a great time to have a weekend away. Make the most of a three day weekend and book a cottage for a short break for just three nights. After three relaxing days away you will feel like you have really made the most of the bank holiday! Or, if you fancy a full week away, taking annual leave to coincide with a bank holiday weekend means that you can have a week off and only use four days holiday. Great news!
