ACV’s Europe On Sale

Nice, France-3 GC

Agents with clients considering travel to Europe may want to keep Air Canada Vacations (ACV) in mind as the tour operator is currently selling European air and hotel packages at up to 60% off.

According to ACV, a spotlight is placed on some of the most romantic destinations on the continent, including London, Paris and Barcelona. Travel agents’ clients are encouraged to book by Feb. 14 to lock in this limited-time promotion.

ACV is also offering $100 in savings per couple and a reduced deposit of $100 per person – instead of the standard $250 – for clients booking Europe packages or FIT itineraries with their travel agent. In turn, agents will receive 3X ACV&ME loyalty points. The offer is valid until Feb. 28.

And, for the first time in three years, the tour operator is set to release a 160+ page Europe brochure.

“We are very excited for the launch of our Europe collection and know that this is something our trade partners have wanted for a while,” said George Platanitis, vice-president, Sales & Partnerships, Air Canada Vacations. “The product will be distributed through ACV’s agent portal and bookings will also be available through our reservations department.”

The brochure will focus on popular destinations including England, Scotland, Ireland, France, Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal and Central Europe. It will offer packages; hotels; guided coach tours with guaranteed departures; fly and drive, and fly and rail programs; and flexible cruises packaged with flights, round-trip transfers, and all taxes and added values. Two new programs will also be introduced including Island Hopping itineraries in Greece and Urban Getaways Plus.
