Canada is only a car ride away from the U.S. and it shows in these numbers: two out of every three visitors is from south of the border.
Here are some more data hot spots:
» Overnight arrivals from France fell 2% in May 2012 after three consecutive monthly increases.
» Heavy economic clouds still gathered over the UK market in May 2012: it continued its downward spiral with another 8% drop in trips to Canada.
» It was Yankee-doodle-dandy in the US market, in May 2012. A 6% rise in auto travel meant that overnighters to Canada hit the accelerator, growing 3% to nudge against one million.
» Year-to-date, Americans have made 4% more trips to their northerly neighbours, a total of 3.3 million arrivals.
» The inexorable rise of the China market continued in May 2012, with a 22% rise in overnight trips to Canada.
