Earn your spring getaway while basking in the sun this winter

Savvy Aeroplan® members can earn up to 15,000 Aeroplan® Miles by booking with Air Canada Vacations' new Preferred Resorts

TORONTO, Aug. 6, 2014 /CNW/ - Air Canada Vacations has launched a new and exclusive Preferred Resorts program, where from now until November 30th, 2014, Aeroplan® members who book with Preferred Resorts can receive either 5,000 or 2,500 Bonus Aeroplan® Miles per booking, in addition to the 1,000s of miles earned with every flight on their Air Canada Vacations package. TD Aeroplan Visa Infinite credit card holders have the opportunity to earn even more miles, with 1 Aeroplan® Mile earned per $1 spent.

By combining Bonus Aeroplan® Miles with the miles earned on the flight, plus top up miles using TD Aeroplan Visa Infinite, savvy travellers can bank up to 15,000 miles – enough to redeem towards a return flight to anywhere in Canada or continental U.S.A.

According to Air Canada Vacations' President and COO, Eamonn Ferrin, the relationship between the two companies is great news for Aeroplan® members. "We at Air Canada Vacations have many unique advantages; we have service to more destinations and convenient connector flights from 66 Canadian cities, more than any other Canadian tour operator. But the ability to provide our customers with such a windfall of Aeroplan® Miles with our Preferred Resorts is truly unique."

More than 140 Preferred Resorts are available in Air Canada Vacations' Mexico, Caribbean and Las Vegas destinations. As an extra incentive, travellers who book by September 30th, 2014 can get even more when booking a Sun package with Air Canada Vacations. Save $400 per couple and, with PriceGuard, get up to $800 refund if the price drops ($400 per person), valid for travel between November 1st, 2014, to April 30th, 2015. Look for the PriceGuard logo on participating hotels.
