Launching today, for one day only: Transat’s anniversary contest for agents

MONTREAL — As part of its 30th anniversary celebrations, Transat has launched a new travel agent contest for prizes that include a one-week stay at a luxury resort.

Every booking of a Transat product made today by midnight automatically earns agents a chance to win one of three trips for two people that will be drawn at random: one in Quebec, one in the Ontario-Atlantic region, and one in Western Canada.

The three winners will win a package for two that includes Air Transat flight in Economy class and a one-week, all-inclusive stay in one of the following hotels: Luxury Bahia Principe Fantasia Don Pablo Collection, Punta Cana; Grand Bahia Principe La Romana; and Luxury Bahia Principe Akumal Don Pablo Collection, Riviera Maya.

There’s no need to register anywhere or fill in a ballot. Contest entry is automatic as soon as a flight, package, tour or cruise package is booked during the day.

In addition, the names of two other travel agents per region who’ve booked a Transat product today will be drawn at random for $30 in Bonbon rewards. The winners’ names will be announced in the coming days.

The contest launches today, a date that has significant meaning for the company. In 2006, Transat A.T. Inc. acquired Canadian travel agency network Thomas Cook Travel Limited, marking an important milestone in the evolution of Transat’s distribution sector.

Transat will draw a total of 30 surprise trips this year among eligible travel agents in Canada. On one day each month, on a milestone date in Transat’s history, every booking they make will earn them one chance to win.
