Just wondering how you book your holidays with parents:

do you book as and when you want them?


do you give at list at the beginning of the year?

or something different?

I never usually know what holidays I am having due to hubby and his job so I let them know when I can but always give at least 2 months notice or more if I can

I usually take the time between xmas and New Year and two weeks bang in middle of summer hols. I confirm with parents either in September or Jan latest for summer.

I book my main holidays a year in advance, to get the good deals on flights.

I give at least a few months if i am going to add the odd day onto a bank holiday weekend.:)

Off to Jersey for the weekend tomorrow after work, with BA so i should just be able to get home :)

On contracts I say 4 weeks notice of hols but usually I give 3 mths or more notice.

But at least if I need to I can give the 4 wks ;)
