Its not a big deal if you skip a rest day or 2, you should have enough for full saturation anyways.
I personally skip a day here or there on my rest days just from forgetting.Thermolife Eternal Rep

You can maintain your creatine saturation by using 5 grams on rest days. If you forget a day or so, it shouldn't make much of a difference as it takes about 1 month for saturated creatine levels to return to baseline.Team MuscleTech Rep

I only take creatine on training days, but that's just me. 5 days on 2 days off"There are plenty of difficult obstacles in your path, don't allow yourself to become one of them."
