Any time a country or region imposes any sort of visa stipulation - even if it’s a waiver - the travel industry sighs a collective groan, knowing the obstacles and headaches to come.
TORONTO — A new Downunder agent incentive from Goway Travel and Virgin Australia offers getaways to Sydney, Melbourne and the Great Barrier Reef from $2,389 per person.
The promotion pairs competitive airfares from Vancouver with hotel deals in Sydney, Melbourne, and Cairns, including up to three free nights and a ‘2 for the price of 1’ Great Barrier Reef Low Isles cruise. The trips are available for sale until May 30.
Goway says agents booking the following vacations will earn $50 per booking, paid directly on to their Goway Rewards Card: the 10-day Aussie City Explorer with Virgin Australia from $2,389; the 11-day Sydney & Great Barrier Reef with Virgin Australia from $2,659; and the 14-day Aussie Cities and Great Barrier Reef from $2,799.
Each trip includes roundtrip Economy Class airfare from Vancouver, hotel accommodation, an iVenture Multi City Attraction pass with entry to five top attractions in Sydney or Melbourne and a full day Low Isles Great Barrier Reef cruise for the two reef packages. Lead-in pricing is valid for travel through June 21 and all vacations can be customized to travel to other parts of Australia with Virgin Australia.
