Looking for a great holiday gift? A future travel experience might be the perfect present in these troubled times.
A new study commissioned by Sunwing finds Canadians are increasingly eager to receive the gift of a future vacation experience.
The survey found that more than half (55%) of Canadians would like to receive the gift of a future vacation or travel certificate this holiday season. What’s more, of those respondents, 89% said they’d be interested in getting an all-inclusive getaway as a gift.
The survey was conducted by Sunwing among members of the Angus Reid Forum between November 16-17, 2020, with a representative sample of 1,507 Canadians, in both English and French.
