Austravel’s General Manager, Karen Joyce, said: “We have seen a tremendous growth in touring holidays this past year. Travellers are more and more looking for value for money in their trips – they are spending more but they expect more out of it, too. Our touring holidays offer holidaymakers just that – they can see so many different destinations during one trip and everything is included so it’s all paid for up front.”
