National Holidays: Always a good reason to travel

The beauty of national holidays is not only that you have the day off, but also that you can extend your holidays by "bridging" the gap between a weekend and a national holiday with vacation days. Of course, this requires prior planning as many other people want to travel over the national holidays and prices for hotels and flights will increase. Therefore, you should plan in advance the best way to use your vacation days to get the most out of the holidays and book early to bring down costs. If you're not quite ready to commit to a trip far in advance, you might be able to take advantage of a few last minute bargains. You'll find a full list of national holidays below:
