Stop taking pill mid pill cycle for 7day break

Patient: Hi,I’m going on a last minute holiday and calculated my 7day pill break/period will be over that time next week. If I stop the pill mid pack now will I have the 7 day bleed and then be able to start again? Is it safe to do so? I don’t use the pill for contraception and usually spot a lot if I take packs back to back which would defeat the point. My pills are Rigevidon 150mg levonorgestrel/30mg ethinylestradiol in each pill.Many thanks
