Canada is a country of travellers. We know that because we’ve done the research; Canadians searched for flights more than 11.5 million times on in the last 12 months. And now, with our second annual Compass Report, affordable travel just got easier. We’ve crunched the data from all of those searches to tease out the most popular destinations for Canadian travellers, both on a national and local level, using the flight searches from six major cities: Calgary, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Vancouver and Winnipeg. More importantly, we ranked these top travel hotspots based on affordability. We learned a lot from all of the numbers, including a few ways Canadian travellers can save this year.
