How to Plan a Trip for Valentine’s Day

Nothing says “I love you” like an impromptu adventure with someone you love. According to KAYAK, the world’s leading travel search engine, there has been a 50% search increase for trips on Valentine’s Day weekend, compared to any other February weekend this year. While the need to spice things up could be a factor, long-distance relationships and vacation flings may be at play. A recent KAYAK survey reveals 22% of Canadians have been in a long-distance relationship with a partner living abroad and 16% have started a relationship with someone they met on holiday.

For a traveller from Toronto, the top 3 destinations for Valentine’s Day weekend that people booked were  Vancouver, New York and Fort Lauderdale.

Or from Montreal, they were Fort Lauderdale, Cancun and Paris.
