Featuring an intuitive design, it allows agents to navigate with ease and enjoy unlimited access to a suite of marketing tools, key information and resources, along with several new features that will help agents increase their knowledge and save time. These include the following:

  • Agent tools: Agents can stay in the know with information on current Sunwing promotions, view on-demand webinars, customizable flyers and more

  • Destination entry travel requirements: Agents will have up-to-date information on entry requirements for all Sunwing destinations.
  • Agent FAQs: Helpful agent information and answers to commonly asked questions will be provided for additional support.

Sunwing’s popular ‘Manage my bookings’ feature will now allow agents to perform self-serve transactions, including adding payments and travel insurance, in addition to making changes to bookings, accessing and printing e-docs, selecting and upgrading seats, booking excursions and more.

Plus, agents booking group travel will enjoy easy access to the Group Sales Resource Centre and its services such as creating instant group quotes, with destination information on wedding planning services, group rewards and our hotel recommendations by group type readily available.

“Following the culmination of several months of hard work and dedication by the Sunwing team, we’re thrilled the new and improved Sunwingagents.ca portal is now live, providing more opportunities for our agency partners to book their customers’ dream vacations with Sunwing,” said Andrew Dawson, President of Tour Operations for Sunwing.
