The specialist in leisure travel invites Canadians who telecommute
to swap their home office for one with an ocean view
MONTREAL, Nov. 17, 2020 /CNW Telbec/ - Transat is pleased to announce that, starting today, it is offering a brand-new collection of hotels called Out of Office Collection. Designed for travellers who would like to soak up the joys of the South while working, the collection features a range of benefits tailored to the needs of telecommuters and includes more than 30 carefully selected hotels in some of the most popular South destinations for Canadian travellers, namely Cuba, Jamaica, Mexico and the Dominican Republic.
This addition enhances Transat's existing hotel offer, which already includes four Sun Collections: Luxury, Distinction, Solo and Family.
"This is a clear trend that we have been seeing emerge in this new context of widespread telecommuting," says Annick Guérard, Chief Operating Officer of Transat. "The offer is particularly timely, with the imminent arrival of winter and our affordable rates. In addition, we are the only ones in Canada to offer this kind of collection with no supplement for solo travellers."
Available for travel with friends, solo or with family, the Out of Office Collection is offered for stays of 14 days or more and features many perks* to ensure that travellers work efficiently in the South:
- No supplement for solo travellers
- Accommodation with ample workspace
- Complimentary or reduced-rate printing and IT services
- Complimentary, reliable and fast WiFi
- Complimentary or reduced-rate laundry services
Moreover, since the health and safety of passengers remains its top priority, Transat will continue to apply the measures of its Traveller Care program at check-in, during boarding, on board and at destination. Its hotel partners at destination have also implemented a variety of measures, including rigorous cleaning and disinfecting, distancing furniture in public areas and adapting various services to minimize contact.
Booking and travelling with peace of mind
To reassure travellers and give them greater flexibility, Transat is extending its Book Packages With Confidence offer until November 30, 2020.
Applicable to new package bookings, this offer includes free COVID-19 medical insurance and Option Flex Standard's extra flexibility to cancel a trip or change travel dates, destination and/or hotel up to 72 hours before departure.
*Offer may vary by hotel. Restrictions may apply.
