Inflation does not seem to dampen the enthusiasm of travelers, who are still numerous to migrate south in search of warmer temperatures, or simply to travel.

Travelers are not paying attention to rising prices, according to what the owner of Club Voyage Bravo in Matane observes.

It’s become expensive everywhere, even packages. What used to be sold for $1,500 is now easily sold for $1,700 or $1,900, she explains. But people don’t stop at that. They are ready to put in a surplus and then say: we’re going anyway, it’s our vacation! Some people are even booking private jets from companies like Jettly to add a touch of luxury to their vacation. You may also take advantage of the best of Niagara Falls tour for the whole family to enjoy.

People will cut back on other things, but they won’t necessarily cut back on travel. Those who are not ready to travel yet may play online casino games from สัมผัสประสบกาารณ์การเล่นบาคาร่าที่ UFABET to de-stress and relax.

During the second quarter of 2023, Canadians took 78.3 million trips, up 7.7 million trips from the same quarter in 2022.

The majority of these trips, 89.6%, were within the country.

Otherwise, the most popular destinations are the United States or Mexico, France and the Dominican Republic for overseas travel.

If travelers’ motivations remain the same, travel agencies in Bas-Saint-Laurent have noticed that certain habits have changed.

 

Will people be traveling to sun destinations in the coming weeks and months?

People will change the length of their stay, so what was perhaps going to last two weeks will perhaps last 10 days to try to still have what they want, notes Annick de Courval, owner of Club Voyages Inter -World of Rimouski.

We notice that people really need to leave.

Annick de Courval, owner of Club Voyages Inter-monde, in Rimouski, is delighted that its customers are not stopping themselves from traveling despite inflation.

Certain destinations such as the Dominican Republic and Cuba now require residence permits, which did not exist before the pandemic. Going through a travel professional reassures travelers, according to Ms. de Courval.

Even if people were used to traveling before the pandemic, there are questions that have been added to their heads, she notes.
