Valentine KAYAK Rendezvous

How Canadian travellers are spicing up their Valentine’s Day

Winter weather in Canada is no joke. So what better way to warm up than planning a romantic excursion for Valentine’s Day. According to our data, there’s a 50% increase in searches for V-Day weekend trips compared to any other weekend in February. Meaning travellers aren’t just flirting with the idea of a sunny getaway, they’re actually making moves.

But what about those with loved ones living far away? According to our research, 22% of Canadians have been in a long-distance relationship with a partner living abroad. So while a dinner out for Valentine’s Day might not be in the cards, with a bit of planning, a vacation definitely is. Whether you’re looking to meet up with a long-distance partner or with faraway friends, our Rendezvous tool makes finding that perfect meet-up destination easy. Just enter both of your home airports and we’ll suggest exciting and affordable destinations to meet in.
