INFOGRAPHIC: TripAdvisor reveals global travel trends

Although global travellers are planning mainly domestic holidays in 2014, the following year will see them spread to international destinations with Australasia an increasingly popular choice, according to a new survey by TripAdvisor.

TripAdvisor’s TripBarometer found that travellers from key source markets Europe, North America and the Middle East all plan to visit Australasia in greater numbers in 2015 than the previous year.

Australia's hotels and tourism industry are set to benefit from the increases, according to Julio Bruno, TripAdvisor for Business global vice president sales.

“If the travel plans of Australians and travellers worldwide are a guide to the economic future, then 2015 looks like it could be a prosperous year for the international inbound tourism markets,” he said.
