We're in the run up to Spring 2024, the days are getting longer again (yippee) and there's an opportunity to maximise your annual leave!

How about a 10-day break from work, for only 4-days annual leave entitlement? All you need to book is the 2nd-5th April off work, and with bank holidays included, you end up with 10 days leave (29th March - 7th April)!

If you have a city/country in mind to visit, take a look at our website for affordable and convenient b&b accommodation options for your stay. The Easter Holidays brings a bundle of availability to our site, with students leaving their rooms for the break. This year, that break falls around mid-March to mid-April.

This week, we're diving into Cambridge Colleges...
