Still Time To Win Hawai’i Trip

Hawai’i Tourism Canada and WestJet Vacations are eager to send a travel agent on a trip for two to Hawai’i that will feature return flights provided by WestJet Vacations and a five-night stay at the Aston Kaanapali Shores on Maui, Hawai’i.

The tourist board and tour operator are partnering on a contest that offers the vacation to the tropical retreat as a prize.

Colin Wood, account director for Hawai’i Tourism Canada, has high praise for Hawai’i Tourism Canada’s partners in the contest, declaring that WestJet has “tons of flights” from this country to Hawai’i and that WestJet Vacations’ collection of Hawaiian properties is “exemplary.”

Wood flatly states that Hawai’i vacations never need to be the same, thanks to the state’s incredible variety, demonstrated by the dramatic differences that can be seen as vacationers travel from island to another.

“If people are not familiar with Hawai’i they might think of it as kind of a single destination,” Wood concedes. “That’s just not the case. Every island is a little different. They are all distinct destinations.”

Hawai’i has long proven popular with Canadian vacationers, attracting over 518,000 of people from this country last year. The island of Maui, in particular, has built a strong following, with Wood speculating its popularity in part results from many of us having bought homes there long ago and then relaying to other Canadians how beautiful it is.

To enter the contest, agents must answer a skill-testing question online at http://promo.baxter.net/contest/hawaii.asp.

The deadline for entries is Oct. 31. Agents must be a full-time travel agent. For full contest rules and regulations, visit http://promo.baxter.net/contest/hawaii.asp.
