If you're looking to splurge on travel this year, you're not alone.

A new survey from travel website TripAdvisor shows people around the world are planning to boost their spending.

Travelers expect to spend on average a little more than $6,000 this year-- up three percent from last year.

Australians plan to spend the most -- double the average.

The survey found people weren't necessarily more confident in the economy -- they just didn't want to scale back their vacations.

TripAdvisor surveyed 61,000 people in 26 countries.
