Flip Flop Report

2014 Expedia.ca Flip Flop Report Examines Canadian Beach Behaviour

Eating more, drinking more and getting more intimate amongst Canadians’ beach vacation indulgences

TORONTO, December 15, 2014 – Expedia.ca, Canada’s leading full service online travel provider*, today released results of the 2014 Expedia.ca Flip Flop Report, a survey of beach behaviour and preferences amongst global travellers. According to the study, two-thirds of Canadians (67 per cent) are likely to take a beach vacation in the near future. And we don’t need any special reason to do so – 84 per cent of those very or somewhat likely to take a beach vacation in the next 12 months say they’ll be going south without any special occasion or event in mind.
