I once worked for an employer that at this time of year was requiring all employees to submit the entire year’s vacation requests by the end of January. My wife and I would scramble each January to plan out what we were going to do with our 4 weeks and when we should take the time off. It was nerve racking to say the least.
However, one of the reasons this employer had this requirement was to focus everyone on taking their paid vacation each year, and avoid skipping it for one work related reason after another. To their credit, the world revolved just fine when we were gone and everything got done without anymore crisis than normal. And everyone took their time off!
As a Vacation Specialist with Cruises Inc., I can tell you that the beginning of the year is a great time to setup your vacations. The early bird not only gets the worm but a lot of other savings and extra perks. Cruise Lines especially are handing out all sorts of goodies and incredible rates to fill their ships.
So even if your employer doesn’t require you to plan out your vacations in advance, you should for your own piece of mind grab an annual calendar and pick your days. Shop now and put down low deposits to guarantee your trip and have events to look forward to. Then the next time a really tough day hits you, imagine your time off and where you are going.
