Surveys Canadians on Love, Lust, and Hook Up Habits While Travelling

When it comes to travelling, there’s a number of things that Canadians are interested in.

While many travellers are solely focused on checking out as many sights as they possibly can, others are more interested in checking out the cute traveller sitting across from them on their flight over. surveyed more than 1,000 Canadians on their love, lust, and hook up habits while on the road.

The flight comparison site found that Canadian men are more interested in flirting, hooking up, and joining the mile high club while on vacation. Female travellers are also interested in getting frisky while abroad, just not as much as their male counterparts.


The travel goal of joining the mile high club is an impressive conquest, considering the crammed space of the average commercial airplane washroom. Despite the awkward room, twenty-eight per cent of Canadian travellers surveyed (41 per cent of men vs. 16 per cent of women) said they’re interested in pursuing a mile high club membership. While only 8 per cent of men and 2 per cent of women claim they already have the prestigious distinction.

But it’s not just the younger travellers that are interested in this high-flying feat. Of those surveyed over 65, 10 per cent of travellers hope to join the club and 1.5 per cent of those surveyed are already members.

When it comes to travelling while you’re currently dating someone, 15 per cent of Canadians said they have pretended to be single. And of these sneaky partners, men are more than twice as likely as women to lie about their relationship status while travelling (21 per cent vs. 9 per cent).

But despite the lack of trust while travelling, there are plenty of Canadians that are interested in finding love while abroad. More than half of those surveyed (51 per cent) said they would be open to dating someone they met on a trip, and 13 per cent of Canadians said they have had a vacation fling turn into a real relationship (17 per cent of men vs. 8 per cent of women).

Of those who found love or just found a one night stand, 47 per cent of Canadians said they’re more in the mood while travelling (54 per cent of men vs. 41 per cent of women). But this doesn’t only mean for shacking up in a hotel room. Twenty-nine per cent of travellers (35 per cent of men vs. 24 per cent of women) said they’ve hooked up somewhere public while on vacation, whether on a sandy beach or somewhere unconventional.

Finally, when it came to preparing for the potential travel hookup, 24 per cent of Canadians admitted to packing or purchasing something to spice up a vacation romance. That number climbs to 29 per cent among those under 25.

Just as we cannot avoid love in our daily lives, we definitely can’t avoid love in our travels. And while most romances on the road are only fleeting, they definitely add to the adventure…
