The Quest for New Travel Horizons Continues

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - June 21, 2013) - The most consistent trend every year is that of exploring a new travel destination. itravel2000 reports interesting increases in travel bookings for unexpected destinations that have yet to surface in the mainstream travel rolodex.

Travelling allows Canadians to tap into a different culture and connect with people, history, and landscapes of the unknown. Tracking the first three months of the past three years shows notable increases in travel bookings to select destinations: Antigua & Barbuda, Barbados, Honduras, India, Indonesia, Martinique, Nicaragua, Philippines, Thailand, Trinidad & Tobago, and Turks & Caicos. For leisure travel, these destinations offer exotic new experiences, luxury, and thrilling adventure that are unique and memorable. Some "sleeper" destinations that are rapidly growing in popularity in the United States include Crater Lake, Oregon and Bryce Canyon, Utah for the natural beauty of their landscapes.

Another trend in travel is multi-destinations that are becoming more popular with Canadians. Travellers are realizing the benefit of making the longer flights more worthwhile by seeing more destinations in one trip, whether by land or cruise. Squeezing in an extra destination, or selecting a place based on its proximity to other travel locations of interest, gives a new meaning to value and all-inclusive vacations.

"It is exciting to see Canadians experimenting with some lesser known destinations to grow their travel resumes," Jonathan Carroll, president of itravel2000, comments. "There are so many different travel personalities, so whether customers like to visit the tried and true, or are looking to break new travel ground, we have expert agents on hand, and a multitude of travel choices, to suit every travel need."
