Transat Holidays and Nolitours launch their 2012-2013 Sun seasons
Montreal, June 15, 2012
Transat, one of the largest integrated tourism companies in the world and Canada’s holiday travel leader, is redefining Sun vacations. Its brands, Transat Holidays and Nolitours, offer a new range of products created to meet consumer travel needs, extremely interesting launch promotions and three new destinations: Roatan, in Honduras, from Montreal and Toronto, Grenada from Toronto and Huatulco from Calgary and Edmonton.
In May, Air Transat presented its new cabin boasting an innovative and sleek design with individual entertainment systems, ergonomic seats in Italian leather and mood lighting. With its newly designed cabin, Air Transat has redefined industry standards by offering travellers the best flight experience in the country.
Transat Holidays’ 2012-2013 Sun Collection
Featuring brand new collections designed to meet the needs and tastes of different types of vacationers, Transat Holidays’ 2012-2013 Sun Collection brochure sets out to redefine Sun vacations and also includes a new destination: Grenada (see attached fact sheet).
The Distinction Collection, previously known as the Transat Distinction line, was especially designed for travellers looking for an enhanced travel experience. Located on stunning beaches, the resorts offer exclusive privileges to Transat Holidays guests, added services and superior comfort. Vacationers will notice the difference the moment they arrive.
The Transat Holidays Family Collection was created specifically for families travelling with children. All of the hotels in this outstanding line were carefully selected because of their proximity to the airport, their extensive family-friendly facilities, loads of activities for young and old alike, and great value for money! The offer goes beyond the destination. We have done everything to make life easier for parents from the moment they arrive at the airport. They’ll enjoy priority check-in and boarding, priority meals and onboard surprises for the kids. After all, family vacations are important!
The Transat Holidays Luxury Collection features an upscale line of resorts designed to provide the ultimate in pampering, tranquillity and privilege in intimate surroundings. Elegant accommodation, picture-perfect beaches, outstanding service, gourmet cuisine and world-class spas are all part of the everyday experience.
Duo Experience Collection
Vacations don’t have to come in neat little boxes. Transat Holidays is pleased to introduce a line of packages that allows travellers to enjoy two unique experiences by combining two very different destinations in one trip. Vacationers can spend the first part of their vacation on the beach and the other half exploring the cultural and historic attractions of a colonial town. Or they can opt for a few days of snorkelling in a gorgeous coral reef, before relaxing to the sounds of the surf in a completely different destination.
Escapade Experience Collection
Transat Holidays has put together a collection of out-of-the-ordinary experiences to complement a dream vacation under the sun. This collection gives travellers the opportunity to step out of the resort on a 24-hour escapade that includes a stay at another site. They could explore the wilds of the Dominican Republic, experience traditional life in a tranquil Mexican village or get up close and personal with nature in Cuba.
Transat Holidays makes getting married in paradise easier than ever. Its three exclusive, worry-free wedding packages have been carefully designed so happy couples can relax and enjoy their special day, focused on each other and their shared happiness.
For holidays on and off the green, Transat Holidays recommends its Golf Collection. It includes a wide variety of golf-friendly resorts that offer everything from golf packages to discounts and free green fees.
New destination: Grenada
Known as the "Island of Spice", Grenada packages are now being offered by Transat Holidays for the first time. Travellers from Toronto can swim at unspoiled beaches, enjoy award-winning gardens, visit historic forts and discover the island’s many spectacular waterfalls. Grenada also makes for a unique wedding destination!
