Since coronavirus cases began to rise in the UK, the travel industry has suffered massively.
Flying abroad became almost impossible as Brits were told to not travel unless it was essential.
But since Tuesday morning, the UK was given fresh hope after a 90-year-old became the first in the world to receive a vaccine.
The historical moment followed as the country became the first in the world to approve a vaccine for Covid-19.
Now with light at the end of the tunnel, the first thing on everyone's mind is a holiday abroad in 2021.
Many Brits might still have annual leave to take over into 2021 so planning ahead is key.
By picking the right days to take your holiday entitlement, you can really maximise your leave.
But don't forget to keep tabs on restrictions and any new rules on visiting other countries.
According to travel deals platform HolidayPirates, you could bag 48 days of holiday next year by only taking 18 days annual leave.
And all it's down to is choosing dates around national holidays.

If you're eager to get out travelling again – with restrictions in mind – you could start this month.
Phil Salcedo, UK Head of Market for HolidayPirates, told Express.co.uk : "The pandemic has disrupted our lives so much this year and lockdowns rightly put a stop to most of our travel plans.
"With the first vaccinations starting in the UK and the hope that comes with that, we should have a chance to seize some of those lost travel opportunities back with some cunning use of the many public holidays on offer in 2021."
Brits must also think about Brexit when planning their holidays for 2021 as the transition period ends on December 31.
