Although Statistics Canada announced in December that the Canadian recession officially ended, some countries around the globe and neighbouring American states continue to face an uphill economic battle. But, according to Cheapflights.ca, that doesn’t mean these locations should fall off your 2010 travel wish list.
In fact, with the release of its “Travelnomics Economic Stimulus Guide: A Report on the Destinations That Need Your Money the Most,” Cheapflights.ca, a leading Canadian travel search engine, is advising exactly the opposite by encouraging economic stimulus through travel. The global and U.S. reports are available for free download here: http://www.cheapflights.ca/travel-tips/#travelnomics
Recent reports from Forbes and CNN have identified global and US economies that have been hit hardest by the recession and those facing declining tax revenues, rising unemployment, increased inflation and expanding budget gaps. Despite the economic crisis, these countries and states offer a fascinating mix of cultural and scenic attractions.
Meredith Hanrahan, chief marketing officer at Cheapflights, commented: “With the current strength of the Canadian dollar and a relatively healthy economy, now is definitely a great time for Canadians to branch out their travel, explore new destinations and spread a little economic stimulus of their own.”
From Iceland to Venezuela, Rhode Island to California, Cheapflights is highlighting a rare opportunity for consumers to explore new destinations, find new deals and provide the local economies with some much needed economic stimulus.
