TORONTO — Black Friday week winds down today with a final rush of deals from top suppliers.
Today’s deals include those from Sunwing, Transat and Hola Sun.
For Black Friday, Sunwing is offering some of the best deals in its history, with up to 50% off vacation packages. The ‘Orange Friday Sale’ is on now through Nov. 29 and features vacation packages for every travel style to such popular destinations as Cancun, Punta Cana and Varadero.
Packages start at $665 per person for a seven-night stay at popular beachfront resort Starfish Varadero in a Gardenview Room, departing from Toronto on Jan. 10, 2021. Also available is the adults-only Riu Republica in Punta Cana, which starts at $1,045 per person for a seven-night stay in a Hotel Room, also departing from Toronto on Jan. 10, 2021, as well as the adults-only Royalton CHIC Suites Cancun Resort and Spa in Cancun, starting at $1,095 per person for a seven-night stay in a Luxury Junior Suite, departing from Toronto on Jan. 9, 2021.

Packages booked during the sale for departures between Oct. 16, 2020 and Dec. 31, 2021 also include COVID-19 coverage at no additional cost.
Transat’s Black Friday sale runs from Nov. 27-29, giving Canadians the chance to travel this winter for a fraction of the price.

Transat is reminding Canadians of its free medical insurance for COVID-19, as well as its flexible booking options that include policies like ‘Book with Peace of Mind’ and ‘Book Packages with Confidence.’
