Canadians can't wait to vacation across the border when travel between Canada and the U.S. restarts, according to a new study.

Research by the Travel Health Insurance Association (THIA) found that 37% of surveyed Canadians plan to visit the United States for their first post-pandemic international vacation, with 33% saying they're more likely to travel there than before.

The research found that Canadian travellers are particularly interested in visiting the U.S. due to the success of its COVID-19 vaccination program.

Of those planning to cross the border ASAP, 47% said they were impressed by the American vaccine rollout.

On the other hand, 46% of respondents described the States as a "convenient destination" to reach via car, van or camper and therefore air travel can be avoided.

The feeling may not be mutual though, as a Leger study in May found that 24% of surveyed Americans say they'll never feel comfortable travelling to Canada again. Ouch!
