Canadians Plan To Travel Locally This Summer

As Increased Travel Fees Overtake COVID As Top Concern

CheapOair Canada has released the results of a new poll that asked Canadians which travel destination and activities they are most looking forward to while also looking into what their top travel concerns continue to be.

The study found that over 36% of Canadians listed Canada as their preferred travel destination this summer, followed by the U.S. (7.1%) and then Europe (5%).

Unsurprisingly, given our Canadian winter, the poll also revealed that Beach Vacations topped the poll as the activity Canadians are most excited for (11.5%). Secondary questions in the CheapOair poll revealed that Canadians plan to find their ideal beach vacation within Canada first, followed by the Caribbean and then Mexico.

Of note is that increased travel fees (8.7%) overtook COVID/variants related to COVID (7.5%) as the top concern among Canadians when it comes to travel remains particularly as gas prices are hitting an all-time high.

Daniel Hayter, Senior Product Manager for CheapOair.ca, said that: “We know as the warmer weather arrives, Canadians are eager to get out and travel – whether by air or the always popular road trip – however inflation costs and travel fees have now become the top concern.”

Hayter continued: “As a leading online travel agency, our role is to help Canadians find ways to save on their future travel, accommodation and transportation bookings so they can spend more during the vacation.”
