Survey finds more Canadians find summer travel too expensive
Study suggests more than a quarter of Canadians only plan to spend $100 or less on travel before Fall comes

If money's too tight to take a trip to somewhere far-flung before summer's over, it seems you're not alone.

A new survey from online store retailmenot.ca says you are 1 out of every 4 Canadians who will take a stay-cation, instead of jetting off.

Their research would suggest sky-high prices for gasoline and hotel rooms are keeping 42 percent on respondents from their dream getaway.

More than a third said plane tickets are too expensive.

The study goes on to suggest that more than a quarter of Canadians only plan to spend $100 or less on travel before Fall comes.

The hotel's loss is the liquor store's gain.

Even with tight budgets research finds Canadians will spend up to $300 bucks on alcohol during their summer holidays.

    We can also now thank the Wynne government and all the wonderful Ontario citizens that voted Liberal for an increase in the tax on airplane fuel which will fuel an increase in airfares.

    I would have told you that travel from Canada is expensive without a survey..

    Taxes are too high on any given ticket purchased in Canada and wonde why taxes are so high.. sale vacation package to all inclusive resort is $399 but tax is $650..

    Hence a lot travel via Buffalo..
