Choice of new Caribbean hotels

the industry, GO Travel Direct is adding 15 new hotels to its choice of
Caribbean packages, including The Bel Air in Cancun and the Blue Bay Grand
Esmeralda in the Mayan Riviera, Mexico; the Villa Cuba Hotel in Varadero,
Cuba; and the Sofitel Nicolasa de Ovando in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
Wild Card Program
When choosing the Wild Card holiday package, travellers simply choose
their destination, departure date and quality of hotel. Upon arrival at their
destination, Go Travel Direct will inform them of their hotel. GO Travel
Direct, with the Wild Card, is able to offer lower rates to its customers, who
would have paid more by selecting their hotel packages in advance. The Wild
Card program will be available starting in November.
Go Travel Direct: a trailblazer in on-line booking
Go Travel Direct was Canada's first tour operator to sell vacation
packages directly online to the consumer., an initiative which all other
Canadian tour operators have since imitated. In 2005, Hugh Boyle, the founder
and chairman of GO Travel Direct, declared that "over 60% of our customers
booked their vacation packages over the Internet." Two years later, in 2007,
this proportion has climbed to 70%, a clear reflection of the company's goal
of offering consumers greater flexibility in their choice of holiday
destinations, at the best possible price.
Go Travel Direct's Lowest Price Guarantee
The Go Travel Direct Lowest Price Guarantee, at a cost of $20 (excluding
taxes), ensures consumers that the price of a holiday package will not drop
below what they originally paid for their vacation. If, for example, an
identical vacation package is offered on Go Travel Direct's web site at a
lower price, Go Travel Direct will refund the difference in the form of
Go Travel Direct gift certificates. This price guarantee is available only to
travellers purchasing a Go Travel Direct vacation package 28 days or more
before their date of departure.
