Five key Canadian leisure travel trends
Saturday 21, August 2010
Canadian travelers are unique. Their behavior and travel patterns set them apart from other travelers around the globe. And while they are frequently compared to U.S. or European consumers, travel companies that assume they are the same, do so at their own risk.
It is essential to understand Canadian travel trends, and how they differ from those in other parts of the world.
Five trends that set Canadian travelers apart:
Travel companies cannot rely on a one-size-fits-all strategy when targeting Canada. They need to be aware of Canadian travel trends, including online travel dynamics, consumer behavior and Canadian travel website traffic patterns.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
