Montreal, November 30, 2009
Transat Distribution Canada is pleased to announce the conversion of a travel agency from its network to a Marlin Travel. Indeed, this agency from Beamsville joined the network in February 2009 as an affiliate member and just converted to a Marlin Travel in November 2009.
With this new status, the now co-branded agency Marlin Travel Lapierre Travel will benefit from many unique advantages, such as the AIR MILES® reward program, the Transat Travel Insurance and strong relationships with the best and most reliable suppliers in the industry.
“We are constantly striving to offer our members the best programs to suit their needs and the best support possible so they can reach the success they are aiming for within our network”, said Yves Lalumière, Vice-President and General Manager, Transat Distribution Canada.
The Transat Distribution Canada network operates two distinct brands in all major cities and towns across the country: Marlin Travel and Travel Plus. To date, the network has 181 Marlin Travel agencies, including 54 agencies owned by Transat and 23 Travel Plus agencies, of which two are owned by Transat. The network is also comprised of 40 other agencies that are affiliate members. Marlin Travel and TravelPlus are represented in Québec by Club Voyages.
