I'm lucky that I can book more or less when I want, mid week to mid week etc. As long as I can get a buddy to cover it's fine and that's no issue either

Does anyone else book their holidays then 'ask' for annual leave? Luckily I have a good boss and book far enough in advance I know nobody else in my team is off at the same time

I book mine first before asking for annual leave. If I see a good deal on internet for hols I don't want to wait until the next day as my luck would have the hol cost go up. I've done it before thinking I had better wait only to find it's gone up to silly money again the day I ask.
I now TELL the boss I'm having these days off.end of.

My DH usually has to, he cannot book holidays until January. Most of our holidays are booked at least 6 months before we go and in the case of Florida holidays we book 18 months in advance. But, he and his workmates always tell each other when they want holidays and make sure they dont overlap so when they put their dates in they are usually approved. Its always a bit stressful though until approved

Its getting really difficult to get the holidays you want on our department in work so I always book mine well in advance.
We are going to Orlando for 3 weeks in September and I booked the month off last April.
I also put a request in yesterday for March 2020

I feel so lucky.
My holidays are rostered on a 10 week repeating rotation, basically each 10 weeks ends with a block of 18 non working days, so I can quickly work out when I will be off any date in the future.
(yes I get 18 days off 5x a year )
This also enables my wife to request leave from her boss well in advance, we can then just wait (hope) for flights and holidays at the right price.
DW always has a spreadsheet running which highlights blocks of available dates and now that the kids are well past school age we have a lot of flexibility
I can also exchange leave with other shifts if we need a longer break.
Just wish we had the cash spare for 5 holidays a year to go with it

DH is non-customer facing civil servant and can book holidays as and when he wants - could go for 2 weeks tomorrow if he wanted! Or could book a month in 6 years time... etc...

I work in retail. 3 of us time-share the same duties so only one can be away at any time, if you find someone to cover your shifts, and no one else is away, you can book any dates you want so long as not in December.
