Signature Vacations has introduced its new 2012/13 winter brochures. Signature is celebrating its 40th anniversary with an increased line-up featuring affordable luxury resorts across the Caribbean and Mexico, many offered on an exclusive basis. Flights to the sun are offered from 30 gateways across Canada, all featuring Sunwing Airlines. Highlights of the line-up include two new Riu Palaces, each featuring the distinctive modern décor which was debuted this winter at Riu Palace Bavaro. The new Riu Palace Peninsula in Cancun opens in May, while the Riu Palace Costa Rica will open in November. Both resorts will feature opening specials. Also new from Riu for next winter is its first ever Adults Only resort, with the Riu Palace Macao in Punta Cana now catering exclusively to guests 18 years and over. Palace Resorts, for which a number of properties are being re-launched under the “Hard Rock Hotel”brand, is also featured prominently, with an array of exclusive perks from their “Crown Collection”available only for Signature guests, along with best ever Group deals and Early Booking incentives. Cuba continues to offer exceptional value for Canadian travellers, especially at several hotels available only from Signature, including Melia Las Antillas, Iberostar Tainos, Riu Varadero and the new Riu Playa Turquesa in Holguin. The operator has also added five Memories resorts in Cuba. For travellers wanting to tailor-make their own vacations, daily flights are available this coming year from each of Toronto and Montreal to Punta Cana, Varadero and Cancun/Riviera Maya, along with new for this winter, Toronto to Montego Bay, Jamaica. With improved flight programs from a host of other cities, there are many three-, four-, 10- and 11-night vacations available across the country. Staying with the shorter stay theme, Nassau, Bahamas has proved to be a popular destination and the line-up has been extended to now offer four additional resorts. Signature continues to grow in Quebec, with new flights to Aruba and Huatulco, Mexico being added from Montreal along with a new Montego Bay, Jamaica flight from Quebec City. “The newly rejuvenated Signature brand has enjoyed a solid winter season, and we’re looking to carry that momentum into next year,”said Andrew Dawson, president of Tour Operations. “It’s great to have brochures and confirmed flying schedules out so early so that groups and early-bookers can make reservations with confidence and get their first choice of flights, resorts and dates as well as some great deals.”(
