A handy new guide has revealed how employees can almost triple their annual vacation in 2020 through planning and strategic vacation bookings.

The legal minimum for Australian employees is 20 days of annual leave per year, but if these are booked around existing holidays and long weekends, that figure can be converted into no less than 55 days off.

By strategically booking, Australians can take a 16-day holiday with only eight days of annual leave over Easter or Christmas, or plan a three-day weekend trip without using a single day of leave in March, June, and October.

The guide, from online comparison tool finder, reveals Western Australians, Victorians, and people living in the Australian Capital Territory can extend 20 days of leave to 55 days of vacation, while residents of New South Wales and Queensland can change jobs for 20 days.

According to Finder, all eight states and territories offer enough free time to go on holiday at least six times in 2020.

Australians can get the most out of their leave by booking a spare time in April, by booking a holiday of 16 days with only eight days of leave per year by booking during the long Easter weekend.

This includes public holidays, including Good Friday and Easter Monday and three full weekends.

Christmas is an equally lucrative time to plan a trip.

It is possible to take a break of 16 days with only seven leave days if you book from Saturday, December 19 to Sunday, January 3.

This includes three public holidays – Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day – and three weekends.
