And it is likely that travel agents will be busy once again this year, as travel restrictions in Scotland get loosened further from next week.
Fully vaccinated travellers will not be required to take any Covid test when they arrive in Scotland from abroad.
Quarantine rules will also be scrapped for unvaccinated passengers, but they will still be required to take a test before travel to Scotland and within two days of their arrival.
The new rules will come into effect from 4am on Friday, February 11.
But while we enjoy new freedoms over here, there are still a number of countries that have banned Scots from travelling over amid their current Covid situation.
Here are nine countries that have continued those tight restrictions at the moment.
Australia’s border is only open to those who have an exemption or have been granted their own individual exemption for entry.
Exemptions include Australian citizens, permanent residents of Australia, immediate family members of Australian citizens or permanent residents.

The Chinese authorities have suspended all direct flights from the UK in light of the current Covid situation.

Restrictions on travel to China from other countries, and the necessary requirements, may be different.
