Travel company Trip Advisor has forecasted an increased level of tourism to Australasia in 2015.
According to the company’s Trip Barometer, travellers from Europe, North America and the Middle East will be flooding into Australasia for their holidays in 2015.
There is set to be a delay in 2014 before this boom in tourism, however.
This is because travellers are intending to rein in the spending in 2014 by going on a domestic holiday.
According to research only a third of global travellers are confident about the global economy and intend to save for the time being.
Shorter, but more frequent, holidays are also on the increase because people are travelling closer to home.
Reducing travel times has meant that people can travel more easily and stay away for shorter periods.
Short holidays are being taken 19% more frequently now than before.
Despite the bid to save with holidays closer to home, many global travellers are still funding all or part of their travelling with credit.
62% of South Americans are funding travel with all or part credit and 40% of Australasians are doing the same.
