Taps Into Top Summer Travel Destinations is offering some insights into the top Canadian, U.S. and international destinations that are being booked by Canadians for the upcoming 2023 summer travel season.

Through its comprehensive travel trend monitoring of web site bookings between June 1 and August 31, 2023, has highlighted key insights that show Canadians are ready to make the most out of their summer vacation time.

Some of the key insights include:

  • Backyard travel to domestic destinations continue to lead the charge, possibly driven by the high international currency conversion and more cost-effective flight options.
  • Star-struck travellers are flocking to popular U.S. locations with frequent direct flights and well-known attractions, in particular New York and Los Angeles.
  • Key international booking insights found that Manila has grown to become the number one destination outside of Canada, which is exciting to see as Canada has a large – and fast growing – Filipino community.
  • Furthermore, European destinations that are rich in culture and history are entering the top 20 this year and seeing significant bookings, particularly Rome, Athens and Lisbon.

Daniel Hayter, Senior Product Manager for, said: “We are excited to see the variety of new locales and popular local destinations that made our 2023 Top Summer Travel List.”
