According to a recent survey conducted by Leger Marketing, on behalf of Travelzoo, 21 per cent of Canadians say if they don't take care of all the planning and booking, their family would never leave the house. So, for all those who love to plan, why not give the gift of an unforgettable experience that will leave everyone with lasting memories?
