Vrbo uncovers where Canadians can still book vacation homes this summer

AUSTIN, Texas – July 6, 2021 – With a busy summer of travel underway for many parts of Canada, Vrbo® pinpointed popular destinations where Canadians can still find vacation rentals available for a summer getaway, even during the Civic Holiday and Labour Day weekends.

“Many Canadian families are continuing to explore their own backyards and booking vacation homes close to home this summer,” said Melanie Fish, Vrbo’s travel expert. “With high demand for vacation rentals in popular destinations, many areas are experiencing limited availability because families booked trips earlier than ever this year. Vrbo is helping families still planning their summer vacations find a last-minute property by sharing vacation destinations that still have at least 40% of homes available to book in the area.”

Destinations with availability that are ideal for families looking to get out of the city and bask in the great outdoors include:

  • Banff, Alberta

  • Canmore, Alberta

  • Kootenay, British Columbia

  • Sun Peaks, British Columbia

  • Whistler, British Columbia
