The Trend Forecast is an insight into the 10.2 million Australian travellers who engage with News Corp Australia’s brands every month.
The Forecast revealed that 87 per cent of Millennials are confident in international travel and more likely to be planning a round-the-world trip.
“Our latest study reveals that Australian travellers intending to take a trip interstate remains consistent but intent to travel intrastate has been steadily falling since last year. Intent to travel internationally is growing once again, with just under 20 per cent indicating it will be the next holiday,” Nilsson said.
It also found that Millennials and Gen Z value agent expertise for certain needs as they are more likely to rely on a travel agent for budgeting, insurance and entertainment plans. The lowest price is on the agenda, but peace of mind still trumps it for now with over 50 per cent of Aussies willing to pay more to ensure a safe and fun trip.
Short-term international travel is rising quickly, with one to two weeks now the most popular length of time to travel for those planning on heading overseas.
“We are seeing that 78 per cent of travellers are now confident in international travel. While New Zealand remains firmly in the top spot for intent, the impact of that confidence is shifting intent from our neighbouring destinations toward long haul destinations, with Europe and the US moving up the rankings,” Nilsson said.
