Aussies to USA/Canada

Travel Daily - - News -

A NEW re­port re­leased by travel net­work Vir­tu­oso has re­vealed that Canada and the USA are among the top pre­ferred des­ti­na­tions of Aus­tralian trav­ellers for the up­com­ing 2018 hol­i­day sea­son, with the re­search show­ing a “solid pull” in vis­i­tors to both coun­tries.

The re­sults, which were de­liv­ered at the 30th an­nual Vir­tu­oso Travel Week in Las Ve­gas ear­lier this week, are re­port­edly be­ing driven by an in­creased va­ri­ety of car­ri­ers pro­vid­ing greater dis­per­sal and con­nec­tiv­ity.

“With Qan­tas and Air New Zealand ac­cess­ing new gate­ways like Dal­las and Hous­ton, the true tourism po­ten­tial of the United States is be­com­ing re­alised as the des­ti­na­tion be­comes more avail­able,” said Vir­tu­oso Asia- Pa­cific manag­ing di­rec­tor Michael Lon­dregan.

Cruis­ing was also high­lighted by the re­port as a pop­u­lar choice due to its dif­fer­en­ti­a­tion, which of­fers trav­ellers “the abil­ity to choose the kind of cruise that is right for them”.

Top in­ter­na­tional des­ti­na­tions listed in the re­port in­clude USA, Canada, Ja­pan, France and New Zealand, while some of the top trip trends were ocean cruises, fam­ily trips, beach des­ti­na­tions, ac­tive and ad­ven­ture trips, and river cruises.
