There is so much pent-up demand because of the restrictions that we have all faced and many people are turning their thoughts to a dream holiday in Canada.

Whether it is about experiencing the grandeur of the Rockies, vibrant cities like Vancouver or the appeal of the Atlantic Coast many different types of travellers are looking at what Canada has to offer.

People want to celebrate the reopening of international travel by scoring their long-awaited Canada trip off their bucket list.

We are also receiving enquiries from people desperate to catch up with their loved ones, given the strong family links between the two countries.”

She said the firm had also noticed a rise in customers who had not previously used a travel agent. Dobson added: “When people are looking at a major trip to Canada or Alaska, they are definitely seeking the comfort of an expert with all the up-to-the-minute knowledge to support them.”

The demand for a reputable travel agent is stronger than ever. With continuing changes to travel and testing, people need an expert who has the knowledge to support them throughout the entire booking process and who can help navigate the travel landscape. Most of all, they need someone they can trust.”
