Bali No Longer the Top Choice for an Australian Holiday

Australians Increasingly Choosing the U.S.A. Over Bali for an Overseas Holiday

(3/1/2013)

[The Age from Australia]  reports that Bali has been displaced by the U.S.A. from its pole position as the most favored overseas holiday destination for Australians.

Citing plentiful air access and a strong Australian dollar as key influencers, Australian visitors to America in 2012 increased 18% while the number of Australians visiting Bali was up just 3%.

In compiling the figures, The Age looked at the number of Australian’s purchasing insurance covers from Cover-More.

Those questioning the results have raised doubt about statistics' validity, pointing out that while many Australian still chance a trip to Bali without an insurance cover, the extremely high cost of medical treatment in the U.S.A. tends to make such coverage an absolute necessity and less of an option for Australian travelers.

Also on the increase, according to the study, are cruise holidays ex-Australia.

In the report, Bali came in second place as an overseas destination for Australians, followed by Thailand, England and Fiji.

Up and coming destinations for Australian holidaymakers are Japan, China, the Philippines and Vietnam – all recording strong rates of growth in Australian visitors in 2012.

Flight Centre said their records confirmed the insurer’s findings, claiming Bali began losing out to the U.S.A. two years ago.
