Survey: Majority of Canadians Writing Off Summer Vacation Plans Due to COVID-19

Only 33 per cent of Canadians plan to travel overseas the way they did before the COVID-19 pandemic.

That’s according to Caddle, a consumer opinion company that conducts daily surveys with around 12-thousand respondents.

Spokesperson Mick Higgins says the data shows the pandemic could have a long-lasting impact on the way we travel.

Older Canadians are the most reluctant to holiday overseas anymore, at over 40 per cent.

With people opting out of overseas travel, Caddle asked if trips would continue within the country.

40 per cent of respondents said yes and in Saskatchewan, that rises to 44 per cent.

Another 40 per cent are neutral on the idea and the rest don’t believe they will be travelling in Canada.

Almost 90 per cent expect their vacation plans over the next 6 months will be disrupted by COVID-19.
