I'm 17 and I work in primark. Usually when we book time off the managers like if you give around 4 weeks notice at least, so when booking time off for my family summer holiday to Portugal I gave 6 weeks notice. I only work weekends so asked for 2 weekends off as I'm going for 2 weeks, however I've been told I can only have the 2nd weekend off as the 1st is fully booked. The problem is that I cannot physically come into work for the 1st weekend as I won't be in the country. My family holiday was booked early in the year and I didn't start working at primark until the end of April. I don't really want to talk to the manger again because she'll will just say I have to come in and that she cannot approve the weekend off. I'm not really sure what to do about it, any help will be much appreciated.

If you had it booked before you started working there then you should have made them aware of it before accepting the job.
You didn't and as such they can decline your holiday request. You either need to speak to your manager again or quit.*
