lastminute.com.au spokesperson, Louise Ryan said: “Aussies love to travel, and even when their household budget is squeezed, holidays remain high on the must do list. In order to travel more this year, the top sacrifices men and women are willing to make include saying no to shopping and eating out. The urge to travel is so strong that many people also claim they’d change their partying ways by giving up smoking and drinking in order to explore the world. Of course, we have plenty of bargain travel deals, available right up until the last minute, to help them escape the budget blues.”
