Online Retailers Join Forces to Offer Canadians Unique Travel Features
TORONTO, May 9, 2012 /CNW/ - TeamBuy.ca, Canada's first group-buying website, and SellOffVacations.com, a leader in online travel retail, have come together in a joint partnership to provide exclusive vacation packages available only to TeamBuy.ca subscribers. Accessible through the TeamBuy Travel vertical, the custom SellOffVacations.com trips will offer TeamBuyers striking discounts and unique travel experiences to Europe, Mexico, Caribbean and the United States. The partnership will also provide travel suppliers unparalleled brand exposure to over a million shoppers who frequent the online shopping destination.
Much like other deals available on TeamBuy, the SellOffVacations.com features will be available to consumers for a limited time to purchase. The packaged deals will include a combination of discounted flights, hotel packages, spa treatments, cruises, golf getaways and more - helping Canadians experience the convenience and relaxation of all inclusive vacationing. Savings will be substantial - up to 40 per cent off retail rates found on traditional online travel sites. Upon purchase, users will have 60 days to use their voucher, as most departure dates have a 60-day threshold.
