Agents give from their hearts on recent Cuba fam with Transat

MONTREAL — Transat is extending a big thank you to all the travel agents who participated in its recent fam trip to Cayo Santa Maria. Agents donated plenty of school supplies for young children, helping two schools in this region.

Transat along with its destination partners, MINTUR and Gaviota asked participating agents to lend the Cuban community a helping hand. The collected supplies were distributed to the following two schools in Remedios, a small city that is home to many Cubans working at Cayo Santa Maria hotels: Circulo Infantil Luca del Valle (a daycare) and Escuela Primera Mártires de Barbados (primary school).

“Transat would like to thank the travel agents, who, as always, showed tremendous generosity,” says Annick Guérard, President and General Manager of Transat Tours Canada. “With their enthusiasm and commitment to such initiatives, they help contribute to our efforts in responsible tourism.”

The Transat fam drew more than 150 travel agents from Quebec and Ontario to Cayo Santa Maria, to show them an idyllic Sun destination and visit several of the must-see resorts in the region. Participants got a taste of Cuban hospitality at Valentin Perla Blanca, Warwick Cayo Santa Maria, Ocean Casa del Mar and Meliá Buenavista.
