Keep an eye on World Travel Awards results for holiday ideas
With so many websites carrying reviews and tips, it is not difficult to do some extensive research into potential holiday destinations.
But how do you know who to trust? One Aussie's ideal break may be completely different to the next person's – it is all a question of taste and personal preference.
There are plenty of things to consider when booking a value-for-money excursion – which places offer the best exchange rates? Where are the nicest beaches? Which destination provides the most suitable accommodation?
One way to assess holiday locations is to keep an eye on the prestigious World Travel Awards, as these are regarded as the Oscars of the tourism industry.
There is a plethora of categories, ranging from best destination to the leading travel agents around the world. The regional heats will take place next month, with the winners heading to the global final in December, which will determine the finest holiday packages on the planet.
