Airbnb reveals Canadian travel trends for Labour Day weekend


With international travel plans mostly being shut down amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Airbnb has revealed that there’s been an increase in year-over-year bookings in Canada for Labour Day weekend.

In general, the home rental service notes that travellers are sticking to more remote locations for the long weekend (with cabins and tiny homes being especially sought after), although trips to cities are rising as well. That said, searches for international destinations are also still increasing, despite the fact that stays within 300 miles (about 482 km) are still the most popular.
