Ten years ago today, WestJet Vacations opened its doors to guests with the launch of affordable, reliable and flexible vacation packages. Today, WestJet Vacations is proud to have sold almost 1.4 million vacation packages, sending more than three million Canadians on dream vacations.
“WestJet Vacations was created to be different from other package providers but with the same caring WestJet brand experience that everyone knew and trusted,” said Tim Croyle, WestJet Vacations Vice-President and General Manager. “Never before had Canadians been given this type of choice and flexibility in a vacation package. In addition, our caring WestJetters have always gone above and beyond to deliver guests the best rates available, special offers and little extras that make a big difference in your vacation. This difference has made us remarkably successful over the past decade and we are extremely proud to have contributed to so many photo albums of vacation memories.”
Over 10 years, WestJet Vacations has experienced unprecedented growth. Originally offering packages in Canada and the United States, today, guests are offered a choice of 64 destinations in 20 countries and more than 800 hotels, resorts, condos and villas.
As a thank you for 10 great years, WestJet Vacations announced three days of big savings. The WestJet Vacations 10th Anniversary Sale will run from May 31, 2016 to June 2, 2016 with discounts from more than 80 of their top hotel partners within the U.S., Mexico and the Caribbean for travel into October. In addition, guests looking for flight savings can jump right in to summer with great deals on flights to select destinations in Canada, the U.S., Mexico and the Caribbean for travel into July.
“In addition to our wonderful guests, I would like to thank our WestJetters, our hotel and destination partners and, of course, our dedicated travel agents for the success we have experienced,” continued Croyle. “Our first 10 years have been brilliant and we look forward to many more.”
