I am a weekend receptionist, the only one that works in my establishment at a weekend - I work on my own and no one can cover me unless the weekday receptionist was to come in if necessary. I started in May so was given a certain amount of hrs as holiday time. I've now used these all up until next year. I am wanting to do something on new year which is over a weekend when I should be working... Do I tell them that it is already booked nearer the time as a 'surprise' or be straight with them and accept I have used all my holiday time up but am willing to take it as unpaid time off? I really don't know how it all works, but I know that I have a good relationship with my boss e.g. i have never let them down thus far... I just don't want them to get a bad impression from me needing to take time off New Year...

Could someone enlighten me please? Hope it makes sense.

I know it's cheeky!

You have no right to unpaid time off. They may allow it, but they don't have to. The more notice you give them, the more likely they are to allow it - I have no idea why you think springing it on them might be a good idea. However, some places do have a ban on holiday on certain dates because they're unlikely to get someone to cover you. Really, you should have checked before booking it.
