Australians are skipping Christmas down-under to travel

More and more Australians are choosing to travel overseas during the Christmas period rather than stay-at-home, according to Intrepid Travel.

To cater for this ‘end of year exodus’, Intrepid has introduced 24 new Christmas period trips, from last year’s 16 to this year’s 40 different Christmas holiday trips, which are departing between 20 and 27 December 2018.

Intrepid have also made it easier for travellers to commit to an overseas Christmas break by introducing a $1 deposit deal.

“Australian travellers are increasingly choosing to leave the festive fuss behind,” Brett Mitchell, Intrepid Travel’s Regional Director, said.

“So, pick a place, pass us one buck and we will take care of all the details.”

The Christmas itinerary includes 12 destinations around the world from Iceland to India to Costa Rica to Cambodia.

According to Intrepid, Vietnam is the ‘it’ destination, however, with Vietnam Family Holiday, Vietnam Family Holiday with Comfort and Vietnam Family Holiday with teenagers the three most popular Intrepid family itineraries.

For solo travellers this Christmas period, Sri Lanka is the most popular destination according to Intrepid, with the best-selling itineraries including Circle Sri Lanka and Cycle Sri Lanka.

Rounding out the top five solo trips over Christmas are the Best of Cuba tour, the Winter Trans-Siberian Adventure and a Northern India itinerary.

The Russian expedition is a wild card entry for this time of year, and indicates Australian travellers are keen to experience a white Christmas with a difference.

On sale from 15 August to 30 September 2018, travellers can secure their place on any Intrepid small group adventure or short break for just one dollar.
