Pull of Britain still strongest for Kiwis

The pull of the mother country is still strongest for New Zealand travellers.

Flight Centre says London is the top destination, with more than 45 per cent of European-bound customers opting for the British capital as their main destination.

The top growing European destinations after that, for last month, were Paris, Amsterdam, Dublin and Milan.

The travel agency says it's seeing a trend in people wanting experiences with their overseas trips, many of them building sailing jaunts into their holidays, often in Greece or Croatia.

European river cruising is also extremely popular.
