Aussies spend up on overseas travel | ALBERTO CORRERA - QUADRI E DIRIGENTI TURISMO IN ITALIA |

Australians are the second-heaviest spenders on overseas travel, according to a new study.

The Visa Global Travel Intentions Study 2013 reveals that Aussie travellers are second only to those from Saudi Arabia when it comes to holiday spending.

We cough up an average of $A4265 on each trip, the study has found.

That's roughly twice what travellers from the Asia Pacific spend ($A1980), and far above the global average ($A2475).

Saudi Arabians spend the most when travelling abroad, with an average of $A6905 per trip. In third spot are Chinese travellers, spending approximately $A3961.
