What is a Bank Holiday?

A bank holiday is an official national holiday when banks and most businesses are closed for the day in the UK. These holidays are placed down by the UK parliament in statute law. The term bank holiday is frequently used with other public holidays such as Good Friday, Christmas Day and all other public holidays in the UK.

In a year there are eight holidays in England and Wales, nine in Scotland and ten in Northern Ireland. The eight main bank holidays are New Year’s Day, Good Friday, Easter Monday, May bank holiday, Spring bank holiday, Summer bank holiday, Christmas Day and Boxing Day. In Scotland, Easter Monday is not a bank holiday, but 2nd January and St Andrew's Day are. In Northern Ireland, St Patrick's Day and Orangemen’s Day are additional bank holidays..

 

Bank Holiday Flights

 

Everyone enjoys a Bank Holiday. These amazing free days off should be included in a holiday vacation in everyone’s calendar. Bank Holidays can make you stay out on holiday for a little longer, in other words, a two week holiday only requires eight days off rather than ten. For example, if you were to take from August 27th to 30th off work, you can then enjoy a break from August 24 to September 1 which works out nine days. If you were to do the same for Christmas so taking December 23rd-24th, 27th and 30th-31st off you can say goodbye to work for the rest of 2019 and enjoy 12 long days in a row off. It's important to know when bank holidays are coming up, and planning your time off accordingly, are great ways of maximising your holiday allowances every year.

With these flights, you don't have to travel specifically on Bank Holiday but it can be any days leading up to it. Around the Bank Holidays, there are many different deals and offers available, so keep your eyes peeled for the latest offers to get yourself some cheap flights for the Bank Holiday. Moreover, ensure to book in advance especially when thinking of travelling in peak season.
