Over 45% of British workers think that their annual holiday is vitally important to them, yet despite this, 25% of full time employees don't actually take their full allowance. Furthermore, 6% of workers actually lose a week or more of holiday time because they don't take it up before it expires.

Having a holiday from work is time to relax. To unwind and to return with a fresh perspective and a renewed vigour. Those who don't make the most of their allowance run the risk of becoming mentally exhausted, as a holiday serves to recharge the batteries. Even if you choose not to go away for every day that you are entitled to have as leave, it is important to take the time off when you can.

There is no need to spend a fortune in order to get a break away. Cheap holidays can be had at any time of the year, if you are flexible about your destination. Last minute deals can be real bargains, but they require that you are ready to go at the drop of a hat. This type of break is more popular with single travellers and couples, although some last minute family deals are also possible.

Bargains can also be had is you plan ahead and book your holiday well in advance. Whist last minute can mean cheap holidays, you are also restricted as to choice of destination or hotel. Booking early is by far the best way to ensure that you get the best holiday in the specific place that you have chosen, although discounts are not as great as those offered close to departure date.

It is important to do your research when you have decided where you want to go. Brochure prices for the same hotel and the same week can vary wildly. Doing an internet search and making a few phone calls can mean substantial savings; don't be scared to haggle with your holiday provider.

However you choose to book your holiday, whether you are an early bird or a last minute person, make sure you do book something. You'll benefit from the break and you'll face work with more energy. Your holiday entitlement is there for a reason and should not be left to expire, or you will effectively be working for your boss for nothing!
