CIE Tours launches new airfare promotion

TORONTO — In celebration of its 90th anniversary and the company’s strong Irish heritage, CIE Tours, a leader in guided vacations to Ireland, has launched a special airfare promotion titled ‘Go for the Green.’

The limited-time promotion includes airfare to Ireland starting at $699 when booking a 2022 Ireland holiday of seven days or longer. The promotion runs March 1-31, 2022 for travel through the end of 2022.

Travellers can choose from a guided motorcoach holiday,  travel with their own private driver, or take their dream trip on a fully customized holiday in Ireland. The offer is available  from 10 Canadian gateways, including Calgary, Edmonton, Halifax, Montreal, Ottawa, Quebec City, Toronto, Vancouver, Victoria and Winnipeg.

Noting how Ireland is fully open and ready to welcome back visitors, Elizabeth Crabill, Chief Executive Officer of CIE Tours, says she’s particularly eager to see the return of Canadians.

“Canada is an important market to CIE Tours, and we are excited to continue working with Canadian partners in their post-COVID recovery. We have a dedicated Canadian website and produce custom collateral for Canadian travel agents to ensure that the market can access the latest offers, promotions, and sales support,” says Crabill.

Suggested itineraries include ‘Irish Adventure,’ which circles the whole island of Ireland and is priced from just over $2,000 per person, as well as ‘The Scots Irish Tour,’ a personal favourite of Crabill’s that boasts the best number of departures left for 2022.

CIE Tours’ 2023 Reference Guide is available now as well, plus its 2023 full brochure will be mailed out in late June. In addition, the company is offering a Groups incentive that includes an $800 booking bonus on most 2023 guided holidays for groups of 10 or more if booked before April 30, 2022.

Crabill adds: “Today, we are fully focused on the resumption of travel in 2022 and beyond and look forward to continuing to give travellers the holidays of their dreams. We have a team of seasoned professionals with decades of experience and are proud to boast a satisfaction ratio that exceeds industry standards.”

Agents are encouraged to follow CIE Tours’ social media channels and visit its website to register for emails and stay up to date on the latest offers, incentives and last-minute deals.
