It's no secret that we Australians love to travel, but how much is it costing us?

On this episode of the Pocket Money podcast, Marc and Sally are joined by Stephanie Yip, travel editor at Finder, country-hopper and Yellowcard superfan, to uncover how much we spend, where we're going and some interesting trends and insights about the relationship between our travel habits and our wallets.

With Steph's expert insights and our usual banter, we dive into some interesting research from the likes of Expedia, Roy Morgan and Skyscanner, and reveal the top destinations for Aussie travellers. We also discuss the effects of FOMO and social media, Steph's analysis on the different types of travel spenders and why influencers are overrated.

P.S. if you're reading this, there's still time to save on your summer holiday.
