Jetabroad: Aussies Love Going to the UK on Holiday
SYDNEY, March 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
-Jetabroad say that there was a substantial increase in the number of Australians heading to the United Kingdom last year-
Australia's leading online travel company, Jetabroad, have highlighted a significant increase in the number of Aussies who caught cheap England flights in 2011 compared with 2010. Taking advantage of the exchange rate, many Australians found that their dollar stretched further than ever before in the UK. This year Britain looks set to be similarly popular with Australians, as a number of national and international events take place across the British Isles.
This revelation comes as VisitBritain announce figures confirming that Britain had seen an estimated nine per cent increase in the number of Australians visiting the country in December alone compared with 2010 figures. The months of April to June were particularly popular with a 19 per cent increase in the number of Australians arriving in the country. The first three quarters of 2011 saw Australian visitor numbers increase by over 10 per cent every quarter.
Jetabroad say that many Australians are expected to follow the trend in 2012, as events in Britain like the Diamond Jubilee and major sporting events are likely to make the United Kingdom, and London in particular, even more popular with international travellers arriving on cheap flights. Â
Darin Walters, MD of Jetabroad, comments: "Britain has long been a favoured destination with Australians travelling abroad, and this year is going to be no different, with Aussies looking to take advantage of the many events taking place in the country and the great exchange rate."
