ACV Launches Book Your Own Group Promotion

Air Canada Vacations has introduced an exclusive promotion for its Book Your Own Group program. For a limited time, travel professionals have the chance to earn one air seat for every 30 passengers booked made via the Book Your Own Group program.

In addition, until March 31, 2023, the promotion offers every passenger booked its CareFree travel protection plan for free.

Nino Montagnese, Vice President at Air Canada Vacations, said: “We continue to work to find ways to support our travel agent partners looking to book group packages. Our goal with this promotion is to create added value for agents and travellers alike while offering the ease of use of our self-serve platform.”

For every 30 passengers booked via Book Your Own Groups, travel agents will earn one free air seat, to a maximum of 4 air seats per agent. Air Canada Vacations will track all qualifying files for travel between May 1 and Dec. 18, 2023 to Mexico, the Caribbean, California, Florida, Hawaii or Las Vegas.

As well, the trusted CareFree plan, which will be included for free for all clients booked with the Book Your Own Group program, will benefit from standard seat selection and Price Drop Guarantee, which ultimately allows travellers to plan their next summer vacation with peace of mind.
