Canadians Put Vacations On Their Wish List

Sunwing, in newly released research that it commissioned, found that there’s a growing number of Canadians who’d like to receive the gift of a vacation this Christmas.

The survey revealed that over half (55%) of Canadians would like to receive the gift of a future vacation or travel certificate this holiday season.

And what’s more, of those respondents, nine-in-ten (89%) indicated they would be interested in being gifted an all-inclusive getaway.

The survey was conducted by Sunwing among members of the Angus Reid Forum between Nov. 16 to Nov. 17, 2020, with a representative sample of 1,507 Canadians, in both English and French.

Samantha Taylor, chief marketing officer of Sunwing Travel Group, said: “Our research shows that many Canadians would love to receive the gift of a future vacation experience this holiday season.”

Taylor added: “Sunwing is helping Canadians make giving the gift of a sunny getaway easy with a wide range of packages at unbeatable prices, so our customers can experience a truly unforgettable vacation to the tropics under our wing.”

Additional survey insights include:

  • 18-34 year olds were most interested in receiving a future travel gift, with 59% of respondents in that age bracket indicating they would be open to being gifted a future vacation or travel certificate this holiday season;
  • Respondents from Alberta (64%), British Columbia (58%) and Quebec (57%) were most interested in receiving a vacation gift this holiday season;
