If you look on Instagram or Facebook, chances are you’ve seen a few people in Europe on a dream holiday. It’s no secret that Aussies love to travel, but has the population gained an extra interest in flying overseas for a getaway?

According to the Power Retail Shopper Profile on Travellers, 29 per cent of shoppers choose to travel to the US, while 26 per cent would like to head to New Zealand for a quick getaway. Among those travellers, 61 per cent prefer to stay in a resort, while only four per cent would be happy to stay in a hostel.

In 2019, it’s estimated that 11.2 million Aussies have returned from a short-term trip (less than one year), which is the highest number on record. “The record annual 11.2 million resident trips in 2018-19 was 5.4 million more than ten years earlier and 472,000 more than one year ago. There has generally been an ongoing increase of Australian residents travelling overseas over recent decades,” explained the ABS (Australian Bureau of Statistics).

According to the stats, those who live in South Australia, Western Australia and the Northern Territory preferred to travel to Indonesia more than those in other Australian states and territories. “Indonesia moved from fourth to second over the last decade (1.31 million – an increase of 198 per cent),” the stats continued.

According to Power Retail’s Shopper Profile, the average stay for an international holiday is anywhere from two to four weeks – a stat backed by the ABS, where the average holiday-goer would spend approximately 14 days on their trips overseas.
