    Smile agree/approve Mary's vacation

    The boss needs to approve/agree/allow Mary's vacation before she buys her plane ticket.



    Do all of the three underlined words fit in the above context? If yes, are there subtle nuances? Thanks.

    The boss needs to approve Mary's vacation...

    The boss needs to agree to Mary's vacation...

    The boss needs to allow Mary to take a vacation....

    They all fit but in different forms. There are nuances. The first is a formal method of saying he has to agree officially to her absence.
