While "summer" and "vacation" may seem like they're synonymous, getting away is not something that's in the cards for a substantial number of Canadians during the warm weather period, according to new polling data.
Close to 1 in 4 Canadians – 23 percent – said that they will not spend any of their time or money on traveling this year, digital offer website RetailMeNot revealed in its survey, which was conducted by Angus Reid. Of these, more than 40 percent said that the main reason was due to affordability concerns, specifically in light of rising gas prices and the cost of booking accommodations, such as for lodging or rental cars. More than one-third said that expensive airfare was another justification for staying close to home.
