If you are opting for a “staycation” with the family this summer, it looks like you are not alone.

A new survey from digital coupon website RetailMeNot.ca found that nearly a quarter of Canadians are staying close to home in order to stay on budget.

Among the most concerning budget busters were gas prices, accommodations and airfare.

Only 7 per cent of Canadians say they will be travelling overseas this summer.

Camping was the only excursion that many  Canadian families could not pass up, with 40 per cent of those with an income around the 100 thousand dollar mark reporting that they will be still be heading out into the woods for an outdoor adventure.
