“Canadians are seeking experiences both rich in culture and history in some of the world’s most interesting cities,” says David Solomito, VP North America Marketing.
“Havana has seen an amazing amount of renewed interest as has Reykjavik, but there are some exciting additions to the list – like Casablanca, Auckland and Manila – proving long distance isn’t necessarily a variable when booking a trip.”
- Havana is this year’s hot spot. While Canadians have always had a love for the historic tourist destination known for its cigars and famous vintage cars, interest in the city skyrocketed with a whopping 230% increase in searches compared to last year. Get there fast before Americans are allowed to starting vacationing there, which will likely drive up costs and crowds.
- Strike while the Reykjavik iron is hot and while you can still score a cool deal. The European hotspot took the #2 spot on KAYAK’S Top Trending Destinations list for Canadians with a 116% increase in searches compared to 2015.
- Canadian travel to some of last year’s top destinations is expected to drop. Osaka was the top trending destination last year, but saw a 41% decrease in searches this year. Florida may also see fewer Canadians; Fort Lauderdale and Panama City’s temperatures couldn’t keep the cities from cooling down for Canadians.
- Nashville is “singing your song.” Canada. No surprise with attractions and events continuing to expand in this great American city, Nashville sees a 43% increase in searches among Canadian travellers.
Canadians will go the distance for a rich cultural experience. KAYAK data shows that long flights aren’t always a factor when planning a trip. Long-haul destinations Casablanca, Manila, Auckland and New Delhi all saw 30% + increases in searches
