It's official — most Canadians are vacation deprived and it turns out that workcations just aren't cutting it.

This new information might be just the excuse you needed to book that trip. For anyone living in Vancouver, there are some cheap flights to help make it happen.

A new study done by Expedia showed that 55% of Canadians are experiencing vacation deprivation and that almost half of people who work remotely say it's more difficult to actually unplug on a trip.

While workcations seem great at first, 80% of people who took them don't actually feel like it's a real vacation.

Possibly the worst part of it all is that Canadians aren't using all of their vacation time. Expedia said that "Canadian workers took less vacation than the global average and a third left vacations days on the table."

Now more than ever it seems — you need a vacation.

If you're not feeling a super expensive trip, no worries. There are some super affordable flights taking off from Vancouver International Airport or Abbotsford Airport this season, so you can get away from it all.
