Any time a country or region imposes any sort of visa stipulation - even if it’s a waiver - the travel industry sighs a collective groan, knowing the obstacles and headaches to come.
MONTREAL — Transat has been recognized once again for its Solo Collection, winning the Solo Travel Award in the Vacation Packages category for the second straight year.
Organized by the Solo Traveler online resource, this second edition highlighted the accomplishments of eight companies that stand out for their excellent services for those who travel alone.
Since 2015, Transat’s Solo Collection has made it possible for solos to enjoy a stay in an all-inclusive resort without having to pay a singles supplement. In addition, several perks are provided to enhance their stay, including a shared table for meals as well as free Wi-Fi and room service where available.
The Collection, which started with just 17 resorts at 10 destinations in seven countries, has grown in just three years to now include 39 resorts at 19 destinations in 10 countries.
In addition to the Solo Collection, Transat’s Sun packages also include the Luxury, Distinction and Family Collections.
“We are delighted to have won this honour once again. This recognition validates our efforts to meet the needs of this growing clientele. It encourages us to move forward and continue to develop programs and products that meet the unique expectations of each type of traveller,” said Annick Guérard, Transat’s Chief Operating Officer.
