From today, Bookabach, a Vrbo company part of Expedia Group, now has over two million global properties, in 190 locations across the world.

International travel continues to boom for Kiwis.

A key driver of this growth is New Zealanders increased intention to travel to Asian destinations, according to Bookabach.

According to the MBIE, increased connectivity and air capacity is forecast to mutually drive growth in visitors from other Asian markets besides China, including India, Indonesia, and Singapore.
