I did that once, of course it was unpaid.
I gave the the new employer a start date that they thought was sort of late. I told them I had a planned vacation, my brother's wedding. They said just to start earlier and they would accommodate the time. If I couldn't cah out the vacation from the previous job it wouldn't have worked.
