Have you changed your summer travel plans because of COVID-19? If you said yes, you're not alone.

A poll by Ipsos carried out on behalf of Toyota Canada has found that while many Canadians are still hesitant about travelling by air for vacation, they are instead keeping the great Canadian road trip alive by sticking close to home and discovering the beauty and wonder of nearby areas.

This summer, Canadians will be swapping their plans for wine-tasting in Italy or beachside cocktails in Mexico for fireside chats at secluded chalet, and it just may be what is needed at this time.

Nearly three-quarters of Canadians say they'll explore locally - and the big old/new travel trend is the 'day trip' - 70% of us say travelling by car is okay - compared to only 24% who think the same way about flying.
