A survey of 1049 Australians by cheapflights.com.au suggests that when we choose holiday destinations, we're likely to pick a return visit to a familiar place over the exotic and unknown. 83 per cent of those surveyed said they were likely to visit the same place more than once, especially with domestic destinations.

A whopping 68.% of you said that checking your phone was "the very first thing you do".
