Two-thirds of Australian travellers enjoy their vacations more when they know they have scored a great deal, a recent survey has revealed.
The study, conducted by Internet travel company Travelzoo, also found that 56 per cent of Aussie travellers book their holidays based purely on the best available deals, and not on locations.
“It came as little surprise that our research also revealed holiday package deals are king, with 71 per cent of respondents saying they always look for package deals and want to see more of them,” Travelzoo Australia and Singapore managing director Brad Gurrie said.
“Holiday packages are a time- and cost-effective option, giving you the most bang for your buck and often enabling you to travel further afield.”
According to Mr Gurrie, a holiday for Australians is all about having a “life experience”, be it discovering other cultures or simply “what’s in your own backyard”.The survey, which polled 1,786 subscribers to the Travelzoo website, further revealed that 55 per cent of travellers would book a holiday simply because an offer was “too good to pass up”.
