Here’s an interesting tip I read in Outlook Money, June 16, 2010:

A married and working couple can plan and claim Leave Travel Allowance (LTA) in all four years of a prescribed block. The husband can claim LTA in two out of four years and the wife in the other two.

Have you done this before? I’ve personally never claimed LTA this far in my career but I plan to try this tip over the next four years.

And here’s a great article that explains the ins and outs of Leave Travel Allowance.
