Spend your staycation at a spa

Canadians are opting for more staycations instead of vacations far from home.

Among other industries, the travel and tourism industry was hit particularly hard by the impacts of the pandemic.

While there is a pent-up demand for travel, the stories of extreme passport delays, increased airfare and gas prices, packed airports and lost luggage seem to have been at an all-time high in recent months. Though many Canadians are starting to resume their normal activities in other areas of their lives, they’re also opting for more staycations instead of vacations far from home.

Benefits of staycations

Staycations offer a number of benefits, including:

  • Time savings. In Canada, many people have been lining up—or even camping overnight—to make it to the front of the line when the passport office opens. Plus, staycations eliminate the dreaded travel days packed with exhausting drives and trips through the airport. Your staycation begins the moment you leave your home!
  • Cost savings. By removing the cost of airfare, gas prices and even the cost of accommodations, staycations offer an inexpensive option closer to home, freeing up your money for some pampering and other treats.
  • A new appreciation for your own city. Playing tourist in your city is underrated and can help you discover gems that were right under your own nose, while also supporting your local economy. Check out places you’ve never been before and learn more about your city by visiting museums or taking a walking tour.
  • Less stress. With a staycation, there’s no worrying about catching a flight, losing your baggage, experiencing jet lag or stressing about leaving your pets or getting sick while away.

One fantastic staycation option that will make you feel like you’re on vacation while you’re still close to home?
