Samoa in Top 3 Best Value Destination for Australians

Samoa is among the top three best value destinations for Australians over the past year with the Aussie dollar appreciating by more than 19% against the Samoa Tala.  Vietman and Argentina made up the top three.

The destinations took the top three spots in the twice yearly Expedia-compiled HiFX foreign exchange Index.

Nick Brain, a consultant at HiFX said: “The Aussie dollar continues to strengthen, underpinned by strong local economic data, commodity prices and comparatively high interest rates. While it retains its strength against the US dollar, it’s likely to continue to help make Australians’ overseas trips even more affordable.”
