The summer season is coming to an end and Canadians are returning home from their European travels with an itch to travel again this fall. Although a summer abroad may be exciting, there’s something special about travelling within your own country- especially when you live somewhere as beautiful as Canada. If you’ve spent the summer travelling across seas, now is the time to experience some beauty outside of your province and explore as the leaves turn to their autumnal colours and the air begins to crisp.
This is why Canadians should travel domestically this Fall
According to KAYAK search data, Canadians are shifting their attention to planning their next vacations and the travel giant suggests fall (September 1 through November 30) as a good time to travel domestically for value. Flight prices are flat year over year domestically while international prices continue to soar beyond 16% year over year.
There’s no place like home, right? According to KAYAK, the most popular destinations for domestic travel this autumn are Vancouver, Toronto, Calgary, Montreal, Halifax, Edmonton, Ottawa, St. John’s, Kelowna, and Victoria.
If you’re not sure where to go, you can check out KAYAK’s newly launched Best Time to Travel tool which uses your origin, destination and length of trip to determine when to travel and book at a great price. You can’t say no to a trip with a good deal, right?
