    Er, call me stupid but:

    Note : You must move in all games at risk from timeout before
    your vacation period ends. You may need to book additional days to
    compensate


    Isn't the whole point of this so I don't have to make moves
    before the vacation ends?

    The vacation system is to prevent you from timeout in your games. If you don't move, people will time you out if you don't move. They're saying, book an additional day to make your moves.

    When your vacation ends and your time has all been used up you are vulnerable to timeouts until you move - hence they suggest you move just before your vacation ends. Your time is still running down when you are on vacation so when it ends you can be in a dodgy situation if you have loads of games suddenly awaiting urgent moves.

    That's how I understand it as a non-user of the vacation thingy anyway.
