In 2015 people are flocking to…

Webjet has just released the emerging destinations for Australian travellers in 2015. Making the most of its tracked booking growth, it measured the January to August 2014 stats against the January to August 2015 data, to come up with a list of the top 11 destinations on the rise.

Unsurprisingly, most of them happen to be in Europe, proving Australia’s love affair with the Mediterranean continent is far from over. A great year for Greece, the country came in with the highest increase at 162 per cent year on year. Spain took out the second spot at 107 per cent and Italy rounded out the top three on 91 per cent.

CEO of Webjet Australia, John Guscic, noted that “improved connections worldwide from ports like Abu Dhabi and Dubai” made it easier as well as more direct and cost-effective for Australian’s to travel to Europe’s previously less frequented destinations.

One particularly interesting inclusion to the list was Cambodia, securing 7th  position with a 63 per cent increase in bookings in the past year.

Here’s the full list from Webjet:
