Sunwing Vacations Introduces 'Price Drop Guarantee'


Travellers from Southern Ontario looking to escape to the beach this winter will have more options with the introduction of two new services from Sunwing Airlines and Sunwing Vacations.

Departing from Buffalo Niagara International Airport [BUF] on Saturdays, services to Cancun will begin Jan. 17, 2015 and operate until May 9, 2015. Flights to Punta Cana will be available from Buffalo between Feb. 14, 2015 and May 9, 2015.

Andrew Dawson, chief operating officer of Sunwing Travel Group, commented, “Sunwing’s introduction of direct flights from Buffalo marks a huge milestone in our business. As part of our commitment to saving our customers time and money by taking them from their local airport, we are delighted to provide travellers in Southern Ontario with another convenient gateway to ensure they make the most of their time away. We have chosen two of our most popular vacation destinations to start this program.”

Introductory pricing for a one-week vacation from Buffalo to Cancun starts from $1,135 plus $140 taxes per person, based on double occupancy at Oasis Tulum departing on Jan. 17, 2015. Buffalo departures to Punta Cana start from $1,195 plus $170 taxes per person, based on double occupancy at Vista Sol Punta Cana departing on May 2, 2015.

In other news, Sunwing Vacations is now offering a “Price Drop Guarantee” for travellers who want to book their winter getaways early.

For a limited time, customers can enjoy price guarantees on their winter vacations. If the price of their vacation drops they can get cash back from Sunwing, allowing travellers to book with peace of mind and secure their ideal resort.

The Price Drop Guarantee is applicable for bookings made until Sept. 3 for travel between Dec. 17 and April 30, 2015.

“Winter may feel like a ways away, but some key travel dates especially around Christmas and New Years are already proving to be very popular,” said Dawson. “By offering our Price Drop Guarantee program, travellers can plan their winter vacations early and take comfort in knowing that if the price does come down, Sunwing will send them a cheque for the difference.”
