ACV Launches 2020 Europe Collection

Air Canada Vacations has unveiled its 2020 Europe Collection which features a total of 145 vacation packages in 21 countries — including 30 new itineraries tailored to better meet agents’ clients’ travel styles.

Nino Montagnese, managing director at Air Canada Vacations, said: “Filled with packaged vacations to countless vibrant European cities steeped in history and culture, our 2020 Europe Collection has a dream escape for every type of traveller.”

Montagnese noted that: “With various travel experiences, partnerships and collaborations our newest Collection positions us as a significant player for leisure travel to Europe.”

ACV has enhanced its 2020 program with more options to choose from like offering two new Seaside Escapes in Paestum, Italy, the home to one of Europe’s mesmerizing archeological zones, as well as a new Independent Escape called Portugal Explorer.

The tour operator also boosted its Costa del Sol program with a new itinerary named Madrid. Andalusia. ¡ Arriba!, along with a large selection of hotels featuring options for long stays ranging up to 28 days – ideal for Canadian Snowbirds desiring to spend their winter in the warmer region of Málaga.

As well, it has added a new Guided Rail tour to explore the beautiful and charming region of Puglia in Italy, and much more authentic travel moments in Barcelona, Matera, and Saint-Émillion in France.

The 2020 Europe Collection also features newly added non-stop flights offering more capacity and choice to your customers; year-round service between Montreal and Toulouse starting June 4, 2020 operating five-times weekly on Air Canada’s Airbus A330-300 fleet, and a non-stop route from Toronto to Brussels starting May 1, 2020 operating up to five-times weekly on Air Canada’s Boing 787-8 Dreamliner.

Early booking offers are in place, with travellers booking 6 months prior to departure being able to save up to $1,000 per couple. Bookings made 4 month prior to departure will see clients save up to $500 per couple.

Not to put too fine a point on it, that means travel agents need to book their customers this month to maximize savings for April departures. The offer is valid on bookings made as of Sept. 3, 2019 until Sept. 2, 2020 for travel from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, 2020.
