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 — Sunwing’s 2018/19 Cruise brochure has plenty of early booking savings for clients, while its Sunwing Experiences lineup now comes with STAR Agent Reward Points that agents can earn and convert to cash on Sunwing Experiences bookings across the Caribbean, Mexico and Central America.
With the brand new Cruise brochure, available now, Sunwing is offering value-added cruise packages from three leading cruises lines and convenient departures from five Canadian gateways.
Fly and cruise packages depart from Toronto, Montreal, Quebec City, Ottawa and Vancouver, on various cruise ships with MSC Cruises, NCL and Marella Cruises, including the new ship Norwegian Bliss.
All packages include roundtrip flights on Sunwing Airlines with transfers included between the airport and the ship’s port.
Clients who book by April 18 can save up to $300 per couple on their cruise package. Clients travelling as a group can get perks including savings of up to $400 per couple, plus the 16th adult travels free. For more details see Sunwing.ca.
In other news, agents can now earn STAR Agent Reward Points that convert to cash on Sunwing Experiences bookings across the Caribbean, Mexico and Central America.
Sunwing says the STAR points will be awarded to new bookings effective April 11, 2018.
Agents can book and earn commission and rewards points as these excursions can now be added as stand-alone purchases, regardless of the tour operator that was booked.
Sunwing Experiences bookings are confirmed under the ‘Activities’ category on SIREV and will also be available soon on Amadeus Tours, Galileo Vacations and Sabre Vacations.
All Sunwing Experiences are hand-selected by local experts and vetted for value, quality and safety, says Sunwing: “Whether travellers are looking for a thrilling zip line adventure, a first-hand look at the colonial cities to soak up the local culture, or a chance to dive-in and discover amazing marine life, Sunwing Experiences has an excursion to suit any and every taste.” Clients also get the added convenience and cost savings of pre-paying in Canadian dollars.
