More than half the population of Australia are said to be taking short-term overseas holidays each year, according to a release issued by My Holiday Centre.
My Holiday Centre Travel consultant Randall Deer insists Australian travellers are “looking towards credible, informed professionals to assist them in staying up to speed with the latest global travel trends”.
Figures released by My Holiday Centre revealed approximately 57 percent of Australian’s are venturing across seas for a short break every year.
Mr Deer claims travellers are still interested in seeking professional advice on “what locations are going to give us the best bang for our Aussie holiday buck and the ideal time to travel”.
“The first half of 2012 has unearthed some interesting trends. The standard holiday everyone was chasing last year has received an upgrade, with travellers learning that the lowest price on offer does not necessarily equate to a great holiday outcome,” Mr Deer said.
“Additionally we have noted that a broader range of travellers are becoming more inclined to book a five star holiday, while Malaysia has joined the hot list.”
The Asia Pacific region offers the most appealing destinations for Australian travellers looking to book holidays for the remainder of 2012, according to Mr Deer.
“Bali is still an incredibly affordable option for many travellers.”
Malaysia is also an increasingly popular go-to destination for Australians and internationals alike, with travellers highlighting this country as a destination of choice for 2012, the release revealed.“A record number of holidaymakers have already capitalised on the strong Australian dollar and destinations that offer quality, value and exceptional holiday experiences will continue to fuel our appetite for a regular overseas adventure for the remainder of 2012 and beyond.”
