Now that travel requirements for Canadian travellers have eased, the flood gates have started to open.
“There is now a sense of urgency to bookings,” Jamie Milton of Uniglobe Carefree Travel tells Travel Courier. “As space is filling up for winter vacations and prices are rising, there is a lot of demand for last minute travel and clients are willing to commit right away and pay more for that experience.”
After two years of being forced to stay close to home — for the most part — Milton says the agency has also seen a lot of interest in bucket list type vacations.
“Whether it’s an around the world cruise, a trip to Africa, an extended European vacation or a trip to Churchill to see polar bears, it seems like clients have spent the past two years dreaming and are now ready to make those dreams a reality,” she explains.
A third key trend that’s driving bookings lately is a significant amount of group trips for late 2022 and into 2023.
“There is a lot of demand for wedding groups, family groups and corporate incentive group travel as people are eager to reunite and spend time with family, friends and colleagues,” she adds.
