It’s official, the United States is the hottest new travel destination for Kiwis with Flight Centre New Zealand reporting a 22% increase in bookings to the USA and a 20% increase in bookings to Hawaii in 2012, compared to the previous year.
This is backed by international travel statistics from Statistics New Zealand, showing that the number of Kiwis travelling to the United States was second only to Australia, as Kiwis continue to take advantage of the strong New Zealand dollar and cash in on their holiday of a lifetime.
To help Kiwis plan and book their next holiday, Travel Expo, New Zealand’s largest travel show, is being held in Auckland on 16 and 17 February, 2013. Hosted by Flight Centre Limited, the annual Travel Expo provides travel information, holiday packages, cruises and exclusive flight discounts, all available on the day.
Flight Centre New Zealand’s executive general manager, Mike Friend, said Hawaii is the hottest holiday destination for 2013 and this is the perfect opportunity for anyone looking to travel overseas this year.
“Hawaii and the United States are hugely popular holiday destinations right now due to an increase in airline competition making it more affordable, combined with the strong New Zealand dollar. Kiwis love that they can combine a relaxing beach holiday with the bright city lights of Los Angeles or the theme parks in Anaheim.
“It’s no secret that Kiwis love to explore the world and with exclusive deals available on the day, Travel Expo is the perfect time to book your next holiday.”
Travel Expo will be held at ASB Showgrounds and will offer exclusive flight specials for a range of destinations across the globe, as well as travel presentations, information about touring, cruising, adventure travel, travel insurance and more.
“With exhibitors from around the world and expert consultants from Flight Centre, Cruiseabout, Student Flights, Intrepid My Adventure Store, Travel Associates and Travel Money on hand to provide you with the latest information on all destinations, Travel Expo is the place to go for anything travel related.”
All attendees will have the chance to go in the draw to win a holiday for two to South America, Hawaii or Fiji. Customers booking on the day can also be in to win their holiday back for free!
