Travel addicts, listen up!

We Aussies like our travel. In 2016 9.9 million of us packed our bags and jetted off to explore a different part of the world. And we’re not just talking quick trips to New Zealand and Bali here, either. According to a study completed by Cheapflights.com.au 80 per cent of Aussies are looking to travel to long haul destinations. 

In the last six months (mid-2016 to early-2017), almost four million locals searched for overseas getaways and 82 per cent of them decided on destinations that are over six hours away from our island home.

Now, considering most of us are suckers for an adventure in a far-off land, we decided to round up a list of the best times of the year to score yourself a cheap AF flight to 10 of the most popular long-haul destinations on offer.
