Travelocity.ca protects price up to day of departure and offers extra savings on vacation packages with "Cure Cabin Fever" sale
TORONTO, Jan. 18 /CNW/ - In conjunction with its "Cure Cabin Fever" Hotel and Vacation package sale, Travelocity.ca(R) (http://www.travelocity.ca) today announced an unprecedented addition to the Travelocity Service Guarantee that gives Canadian consumers a level of price protection not available from other Canadian online travel sites. And for a limited time, Travelocity.ca will expand its new Travelocity Price and Service Guarantee to include Create Your Own vacation packages.
Building on the site's industry-leading Travelocity Guarantee, launched in 2006, now customers who find the same Hotel or Create Your Own vacation package (flight + hotel) for less elsewhere online* any time prior to the day of departure, can notify Travelocity.ca and receive a refund for the difference in price. In addition, qualifying customers will also receive a $50US discount toward future travel. The promotional period for this offer extends from January 4 to March 22, 2010.
"Canadians naturally want to know they're getting their vacation at a great price, but we recognize that the best vacation experiences are really defined by what happens after you've booked," said Brian Simpson, General Manager of Travelocity.ca. "That's why the Travelocity Guarantee protects both the price and the full customer experience. From making sure you get the best deal we can offer, to resolving issues quickly and painlessly, and even stepping in when the hotel room you booked, isn't the hotel room you got - we've got your back, all trip long."
Travelocity.ca customers already save an average $379US by booking their flight and hotel together. The site now also gives consumers a level of price protection on Create Your Own package bookings not available from other online travel sites. Meanwhile, Travelocity.ca continues to offer the only true, worry-free experience for booking a vacation package with the elimination of change and cancellation fees for hotel bookings and Create Your Own vacation packages (excluding last minute packages).
In addition to the site's unmatched guarantee, Travelocity.ca has launched the "Cure Cabin Fever" sale with remarkable savings on Create your Own vacation packages at four- and five-star hotels in popular sun and snow destinations. Between January 4 and March 22, 2010, customers have the opportunity to save on thousands of hotels worldwide at popular chains such as Marriott, Holiday Inn and Hyatt.
