ACV Launches CareFree Plan

Air Canada Vacations (ACV) has launched CareFree, a new value proposition – commissionable at 5% – specific to destinations in Mexico and the Caribbean.

With it, clients will receive free seat selection, year-round Price Drop Guarantee, StormGuard and a $50 waiver on administrative change fees – amounting to $339 in savings. As an introductory offer, the plan will cost clients $49 per person until June 30 (the regular price will be $79).

CareFree includes StormGuard and the Price Drop Guarantee, both of which can also be purchased separately. The year-round Price Drop Guarantee is a one-time, cash back offer of a maximum $200 if the price of a package drops after booking, while StormGuard lets clients rebook their vacation if the U.S. National Hurricane Center declares a tropical storm warning within 72 hours of their scheduled departure.

“CareFree is a flexible option for clients that guarantees stress-free vacation planning. It’s affordable and gives travellers peace of mind in case the unexpected happens,” said Nino Montagnese, managing director, Air Canada Vacations. “This plan is also an easy add-on for travel agents, and with it they’ll earn 5% commission.”

The CareFree Plan was announced in ACV’s recently launched Top Picks brochure, which highlights top resorts in Mexico and the Caribbean, and value-added offers including the Early Booking Bonus, Group and Wedding offers, and distinct collections.
