Duo packages: the best of both worlds
Exclusive to Transat, Duo packages are an innovative way to rethink vacations. They offer the opportunity to discover two facets of a South destination in a single trip: lazing on the beach, coupled with the discovery of a city and its culture.
In Cuba, immerse yourself in Havana's rich culture and fascinating history, then relax on Varadero's pristine beaches. In Colombia, take a stroll through the colorful streets of Cartagena, then escape to the tranquil island of Barú.
Winter in Europe
More committed than ever to helping Canadian travellers discover Europe year-round, Transat now offers an enticing selection of short- and long-term packages in France (Lyon, Marseille, Paris), Portugal (Lisbon, Porto and Faro), Spain (Malaga) and the United Kingdom (London). These packages include flights, a choice of more than 150 hotels, transfers, excursions and much more. Travellers can also opt for a la carte hotels to further personalize their stay and enjoy even more flexibility.
More flexibility thanks to Option Flex
For the ultimate level of flexibility, Transat offers two types of Option Flex for South and Europe packages.
With the Option Flex Standard, customers can cancel or change travel dates, destination or hotel, and obtain a travel credit up to 72 hours before departure for a fee of $89. The Flex Extra Option, on the other hand, allows customers to cancel or change travel dates, destination or hotel up to 24 hours before departure, and obtain a refund for a fee of $149. In both cases, it is also possible to transfer the package to a friend or family member up to 30 days before departure. Conditions apply.
Virtual brochures featuring Transat employees
Travel Counsellors can now discover all the details of Transat's winter offer via its virtual brochures, which once again feature Transat's very own staff members.
An attractive flight program for next winter
Air Transat recently unveiled an ambitious flight schedule for the winter season. It is expanding its offer by pursuing its strategy of annualizing its routes to the French provinces; Lyon and Marseille will now be operated year-round, and Nantes until mid-January. In addition, it's significantly increasing its frequencies to South destinations, including Florida. Indeed, the company is significantly increasing its capacity to this destination, which it has been serving for almost 35 years. From Montreal, two additional flights per week will be offered to Orlando (thus offering daily flights) and seven to Fort Lauderdale (for a total of 13 frequencies per week), facilitating access to cruises departing from the Sunshine State.
The entire offer is now available on the Transat and Air Transat websites, as well as via all major Canadian distributors, including Marlin Travel, Club Voyages, Voyages Transat, Transat Travel and Travel Plus across the country.
