Air Canada Vacations is introducing "Dream of Sun" – an interactive digital brochure meant to inspire Canadians for their next vacation and "completely replace" the need for a printed brochure.
The digital brochure invites travellers to "Follow the Sun" by virtually diving into its 2022-2023 Sun Collection which features over 600 mostly all-inclusive hotels to choose from across 38 destinations, including 67 new additions, 3 resorts exclusive to Air Canada Vacations and 29 semi-exclusive resorts.
By visiting Air Canada Vacations' web site, agents' clients can embark on a virtual journey through an selection of packages in sunny destinations. The digital brochure’s interactive design features images, video and editorial content including destination highlights with the capabilities for them to search by hotel name, category, or popular filters like hotels where kids stay free.
Travel professionals can guide their customers to destinations by sharing links of each vacation package, allowing them to review Air Canada Vacations’ new Sun Collection, plan their escape and contact their agent when they’re ready to book.
“The challenges our industry faced over the past two years gave Air Canada Vacations an opportunity to reimagine the way our business works. With more and more travel agents working virtually, it was important for us to provide them with all the resources necessary to find the perfect vacation for our shared customers. The Dream of Sun digital brochure offers travel professionals a simple tool to help their customers plan their often long-awaited vacation,” said Nino Montagnese, Vice President at Air Canada Vacations. “With this launch, we are proud to solidify our market position by leading the charge in digital-first initiatives.”
Air Canada Vacations is once again highlighting LGBTQ+ friendly hotels, to help Canadians enjoy their time under the sun in "a welcoming and safe space." Vacationers in search of sustainable travel can now make informed decisions with an eco-friendly spotlight for resorts certified for their green policies and support of local communities.
For those looking to set sail again, the tour operator continues to offer more options to cruise lovers with "hundreds of cruises" in the lineup. The brochure also features more than 96 Play Collection resorts and 20 Play hotels in the U.S.
