Annual leave that works for you.

Whether you want more time to take a trip away, or you have too much time on your hands, HolidayFlex helps you take control of your annual leave.

Purchase additional annual leave

HolidayFlex allows you to purchase extra annual leave in exchange for reductions in your gross pay, this means you get to enjoy more free time whilst benefiting from tax and National Insurance savings.

Sell annual leave*

By selling some of your unwanted annual leave back to your employer through HolidayFlex, you can benefit from increased pay instead of losing unused leave at the end of the year.

*Your employer may not offer the option to sell annual leave.
