Travel may have come to a temporary halt, but that doesn't mean travellers can't plan for brighter days ahead.
Sunwing is helping customers plan their next vacation with an Early Booking Bonus on future vacation packages during the tour operator’s Freedom 21/22 sale.
The promo includes exclusive discounts and special perks on select vacation packages booked by March 31, 2021, for the freedom of travel between November 1, 2021, and April 30, 2022.
“Almost a year of quarantining and months of gloomy winter weather is starting to take its toll on Canadians,” commented Dr. Peter Nord, acting Chief Medical Advisor for Sunwing Travel Group and Chief Medical Officer at Medcan. “Planning a future vacation to a tropical destination provides numerous mental health benefits and positively influences overall well-being."
Dr. Nord said he is "hopeful" that travel will resume later this year as COVID-19 cases drop and vaccinations start rolling out.
"The anticipation of visiting a beautiful destination provides excitement, helps reduce anxiety and gives us hope for the future – something that’s more important than ever during a global pandemic," he said.
That "spike in excitement"
A recent Sunwing survey revealed that 75% of Canadian travellers undergo a spike in excitement the instant they book, proving that the benefits of a vacation start long before a customer gets to the airport.
From now until March 31, 2021, early bookers will receive up to $1,000 in value per couple when they plan their future tropical getaway.
The Freedom 21/22 promotion includes reduced deposits of $100 per person, complimentary Price Drop Cash Back of up to $800 per couple at select resorts and the ability to change or cancel their plans anytime with ease.
Complimentary COVID-19 coverage is also included on all packages for travel between now and December 31, 2021.
Health and safety standards are in place every step of the way with the Safe with Sunwing commitment.
Customers looking forward to the freedom of future travel may choose to stay at the brand-new Planet Hollywood Beach Resort Cancun, where sun-seekers can Vacation Like a Star at this entertainment-themed resort that offers exciting activities and A-lister amenities.
The complex is also home to the first of its kind Planet Hollywood Adult Scene Cancun, a resort-within-a-resort for guests aged 18+ offering exclusive facilities in addition to access to the wider Planet Hollywood resort.
