US aims to boost Aussie visitors

An American tourism promotion team has descended on Australia in hopes of increasing tourism to the country, the Sydney Morning Herald has reported.

Representatives from many iconic US destinations, including New York City, Las Vegas and Los Angeles, are among those visiting Australia, with events taking place across Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.

The visit is well-timed as, according to Mark Latham of Visit USA Australia, February is the time when most Australians decide on a visit to the US.

Figures from the US Department of Commerce show New York and California as the most popular states for Australian visitors, while the most popular holiday activities were said to be city sightseeing and watching plays and concerts.

A one-off trip to the States can be covered by a one-trip travel insurance policy from InsureandGo.
