Sunwing makes family travel as easy as 1,2,3, with savings of up to 40% on Kidcations this summer

TORONTO, April 13, 2017 /CNW/ - Good news for families looking for ways to fill that long summer break, Sunwing is offering savings of up to 40% on a wide selection of its top-rated, family-oriented resorts included in its popular Kidcations program. Instead of a staycation or cottage rental closer to home, vacationers that take advantage of this time limited promotion can exchange swimming in the lake with snorkelling above coral reefs or whizzing down thrilling waterslides at a price that won't blow their summer travel budget. However they'll have to move quickly, as these savings are only available until April 21st.

When families choose a Kidcation this summer, they can be assured of a fun-packed experience for everyone. As Canada's #1 for family vacations, Sunwing believes that there is no one better to road test their top-rated, family-oriented resorts than the children themselves and each year the tour operator looks for an elite team of Kidcation Testers to ride the tallest water slides, taste the best ice cream and experience the coolest excursions to ensure family travel planning is a tropical breeze! Plus, the hunt for the Kidcation Testers for 2017 is on now. For more information or to enter, click here.

Grand Memories Varadero in Cuba scored full marks with Kidcationer Matthieu from Quebec, when he visited the property last year.  This top-rated family resort rests on one of the most beautiful beaches in the area, and entertains kids and adults alike with meet and greets with kids favourite characters like Toopy and Binoo™, and numerous complimentary activities such as tennis and snorkelling.

Kidcation tester brother and sister duo, Fireese and Hartford from Toronto, had a blast at Grand Riviera Princess Resort this past December. They loved its complimentary kids club that includes an exciting waterpark with thrilling slides. This family-friendly hotel also offers exchange privileges to Grand Sunset Princess Resort, which includes access to 12 pools. Plus, guests can stay in swim-up suites with direct access to extensive pools so a refreshing dip is never far away.

Along with candid reviews to help families choose the resort that's right for them, when vacationers book with Sunwing they can also look forward to a number of exclusive valued-added perks including kids Stay, Play and Eat FREE deals all year round, no single supplement fee for single parents, complimentary kids clubs and a dedicated kids pool depending which resort they select.

In addition, all packages include return flights on Sunwing Airlines where passengers can sit back and relax while on board, with award-winning inflight service that includes a sparkling wine toast, complimentary non-alcoholic beverage service and buy on board selection of light meals and snacks with choices inspired by Food Network Canada Celebrity Chef, Lynn Crawford.
