Travellers can receive up to $800 per couple in added value credit on qualifying packages
VANCOUVER, Sept. 14, 2017 /CNW/ - Rocky Mountaineer is enticing Canadians to stay home next year with its Peaks and Perks offer, available now until October 27, 2017. Following a busy year of Canada 150 celebrations, Canadians deterred from backyard travel can reclaim local vacation spots with up to $800 per couple in added value credit on qualifying 2018 packages.
Canada's 150th celebrations made 2017 an attractive year for overseas travellers with free admission to national parks and historic sites, and ongoing community celebrations. In June alone, Canada saw an eight per cent overall increase in international arrivals, a total of 2,583,823 visitors, as reported by Destination Canada. In addition, the country is on par to see a 5.3 per cent increase in U.S. visitors over the year. Canadian who have avoided travelling among the steady influx of tourists over 2017 can use Rocky Mountaineer's 2018 Peaks and Perks offer to reconnect to Canada without the crowds.
The offer can be applied toward add-ons including more Rocky Mountaineer routes, extra hotel nights, activities and tours, car rentals, or an Alaskan cruise. Guests booking qualifying packages of eight days or more in GoldLeaf or SilverLeaf Service will receive $400 per adult, and those booking packages of five to seven days will receive $250 per adult.
Travellers can select from a variety of desirable packages such as the Grand Rail Circle, which includes the First Passage to the West and Rainforest to Gold Rush routes. Together, these routes form the ultimate Canadian journey that blends intriguing historical elements and breathtaking scenery with visits to Vancouver, Jasper, Banff, Whistler, Quesnel and Kamloops. Guests will pass landmarks like Craigellachie, where the last spike of the Canadian Pacific Railway was driven in, and the spectacular Mount Robson, experiencing everything from lush rainforests to desert-like conditions along the way.
Those eager to get travelling again in 2018 can redeem the offer until October 27, 2017. The Peaks and Perks offer is applicable on select travel dates and must be requested at the time of booking. The offer has no cash value and other restrictions may apply. For more information, please contact Rocky Mountaineer directly at 1-877-460-3200, or online at www.rockymountaineer.com.
