Early Easter Translates into More Canadians Travelling

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 28, 2013) - Historically, Easter, one of the most popular holidays for travel second to Christmas, has come early this year, influencing more travel bookings this month. March is already a strong month for travel based on March Break, but now with many Canadians booking last minute deals returning or arriving this Easter weekend, travel bookings for itravel2000 have increased. Last week, itravel2000 reported in some cases, packages were selling out quickly.

By this time, Canadians are eager to escape the winter after the dreaded January and February blahs. On search for some warmer climates and fun in the sun, Canadian families notice the importance of spending quality time with their growing families, time that they can't get back. With so many hardworking Canadians and so few vacation days, taking advantage of the holidays is the perfect time to travel. Travelling is the time to actually experience family moments that don't involve household chores and fighting over the remote control.

"Calls from customers were on the rise as early as the first week of February with vacation packages for Cuba and Mexico," Jonathan Carroll, president of itravel2000, comments, "We understand Canadians want to make the most of their time off with their families, and to travel is the best way to create exciting new memories together, which we are happy about, and proud to be a part of that journey."
