Air Canada Vacations (ACV) has introduced, for the first time, 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, three resorts exclusive to Air Canada Vacations and 29 semi-exclusive resorts.

By visiting this link, clients can embark on a virtual journey through an incomparable 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 bucket-list destinations by sharing links of each vacation package, allowing them to easily review ACV's new Sun Collection, plan their dream escape and contact their trusted 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.”

ACV is once again highlighting LGBTQ+ friendly hotels, so that Canadians can enjoy their time under the sun in a welcoming and safe space.
