Dip in Aussie holiday trend
By admin

The number of Australians intending to take a holiday in the next year has dropped in the April quarter, according to a new research.

The Roy Morgan Holiday Tracking Survey for the April quarter revealed 71% of Australians were planning a holiday in the next 12 months.

That is above the 68% in the same quarter last year but down from the historic high of 72% in the first quarter of 2012 when banks increased their standard variable interest rates.

More than half (56%) intend to take a domestic trip for their next holiday, up from 55% in April 2011, with 9% intending to go overseas.
