Every captain needs a first mate. And at Virgin Voyages, the adults-only cruise line set to debut in 2020, its second-in-command will be none other than travel agents.
TORONTO — After giving a teaser of its new Luxury lineup at its Sun product launch in September, Air Canada Vacations has finally unveiled its Ultimate Escapes brochure, featuring 43 handpicked properties in Mexico, the Caribbean and the U.S.
The Luxury product line, presented for the first time as a standalone brochure, includes ocean-facing suites and villas with private roundtrip transfers, as well as extra perks like menus from award-winning chefs, wine lists, butler service and more.
“Our Ultimate Escapes Collection meets the needs of clients looking for a vacation offering the epitome of luxury, that they can book in one place with the trust and convenience of booking with Air Canada Vacations,” said Nino Montagnese, Managing Director at Air Canada Vacations. “We’re constantly striving to go beyond packaged vacations to offer effortless travel that transports clients into the extraordinary and we’re proud to say we’ve done exactly that, with luxury reflected in every last detail.”
While speaking at the company’s Sun product launch in Toronto earlier this year, Montagnese told agents in attendance that the line “won’t be for everyone, but it will be for some of you,” particularly those with clients who can drop $5,000 per person on a vacation. He also added that commissions for ACV’s Luxury product will be higher.
All packages come with roundtrip flights aboard Air Canada or Air Canada Rouge, departing from 64 Canadian cities, as well as complimentary advance seat selection, preferred seating when available, priority check-in and boarding, and a one-time bonus of 1,500 Altitude Qualifying Miles for Air Canada Altitude members. Groups can also choose to elevate their Ultimate Escape by booking a 58-seat private jet with Air Canada Jetz.
Agents can now book the Ultimate Escapes Collection on aircanadavacations.com/agents or through their GDS.
