While Canada's border and quarantine measures remain untouched, the pent-up demand for post-pandemic vacations is real, says Sunwing

Sunwing on Friday (June 4) said that it is seeing an increase in sales for the 2021-2022 winter season, and to help vacationers make the most of their return to the tropics, the tour operator is offering savings of up to 35% on popular vacation packages with their Steal of a Deal Sale.

Travellers can save big on select packages booked between now and June 11, 2021 for travel between November 1, 2021 to April 30, 2022. 

“We’re starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel as our customers start to book their future vacations,” said Andrew Dawson, president of Tour Operations for Sunwing. “With fully vaccinated residents south of the border making an enthusiastic return to travel, we’re now seeing Canadians following suit. Our recently announced regional routes have also been extremely popular and are selling out from coast to coast as Canadians seek out frictionless vacation experiences more than ever before.”

“From family reunions to reconnecting with friends and group getaways, travellers are getting a head start on planning their winter escape while taking advantage of incredible early booking deals,” said Samantha Taylor, Sunwing’s chief marketing officer. “We’re seeing an increasing number of customers seek out personalized and enhanced vacation experiences to make up for lost time, including upgrading to premium room categories, opting for private resort transfers and staying at ultra-luxurious resorts.”

With Sunwing announcing more regional gateways for the 2021-2022 winter season including Sudbury, London and cities across Atlantic Canada, it’s easier than ever for groups to reconnect in destination – even when they’re taking off from different airports across the country.

Travellers who are looking for stress-free group vacations can take advantage of exclusive perks at select resorts when ten adults or more travel together including reduced deposits of just $150 per person, private transfers and spa discounts. 

For a limited time, groups can also enjoy free travel for the sixth adult on select bookings made by July 13, 2021 to RIU Hotels & Resorts and Royalton Luxury Resorts for travel between November 1, 2021 and April 30, 2022.

Customers can book with peace of mind knowing that the highest Canadian standards are in place every step of the way with the Safe with Sunwing program. 

Developed under the advisement of global healthcare leader Medcan, the Safe with Sunwing commitment is in place throughout the entire vacation experience, from the moment travellers check in at the airport to their flight to the tropics, their resort transfers and their time in destination, and the journey back home.
