Fairfax’s research into its travel audience also found that 77% of all trips involve online research, 62% of Fairfax’s audience who intend to travel accessed travel content on a mobile device and people visit on average of 13 different websites before booking their trip. Traveller.com.au will inspire Australians’ travel journeys with stories from the country’s most highly regarded travel writers, expert and user reviews, planning tools and the best curated holiday deals.
