Holiday Deals Abound, Providing Families with a Chance to Travel to Top Destinations Over the Long Weekend

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 24, 2012 /CNW/ - Hotwire.com®, a leading discount travel site, today announced the 10 most popular destinations for Canadian travellers over Family Day 2012, based on hotel bookings. With many Canadians using the third Monday in February as a time to celebrate with their loved ones, the long weekend is the perfect opportunity to take the whole family on a short getaway or use the holiday to begin a longer international vacation. And trip seekers are in luck as plenty of popular destinations are offering some great deals on Hotwire® during this time of year.

"Family Day is a time to reflect on the importance of family life, and what better way to celebrate that than by creating new memories with a family trip?" said Clem Bason, President of the Hotwire Group. "It's no surprise that some of the most booked destinations for Canadian travellers are located close to home in major Canadian cities, but it's also exciting to see that folks are taking advantage of the long weekend and heading to other popular destinations outside of the country."
