More than half of Canadians saying they intend to vacation in 2016, with many turning to mobile phones to sneak in vacation dreaming and planning here and there. Indeed, Canadians spend an average of 30 days planning their trips, which last 8.6 days on average.
“Destinations on Google” is a new service in Canada which helps users discover and plan their next vacation from Google Search on their phone.
Quoth Jenn Kaiser, Communications Manager, Google Canada:
Search with Google on your mobile phone for the continent, country, or state you’d like to travel to and add the word “destination” to see an easy-to-browse collection of options. Destinations integrates a deep understanding of all the places in the world with Google Flights and Hotel search, so you can see available flight and hotel prices instantly. So instead of jumping between a dozen links or tabs to get the information you need, you can sit back and scroll—and leave the heavy lifting to us.
The countries Canadians are most interested in visting include Costa Rica, Iceland, and Greece.
