The past year has seen a slide in the value of the Canadian dollar (often called a 'loonie' because of the loon that decorates the back of the coin) and it's having an impact on Canadian vacation plans, including less overseas travel or shorter trips. On the other hand, it means more business for Canadian destinations, as more people choose domestic travel.
A recent survey commissioned by Expedia.ca shows 6 Canadian cities in the top 10 searched destinations for travel by Canadians in the first half of 2016. Toronto tops the list, with Vancouver, Montreal and Niagara Falls at 3, 4, and 5, Banff National Park at 8 and Quebec City at 10.
In the survey, nearly three-quarters said the Loonie is affecting their plans for this year; half said it would affect how often they travel, and nearly as many said its' affecting how long they stay.
