WestJet Vacations 2011-2012 winter packages now available

Travel agents and guests can get a head start with great deals for next winter

CALGARY, May 9 /CNW/ - WestJet today announced that WestJet Vacations packages for Christmas 2011 and the 2011-2012 winter season are now available for booking. Packages to Mexico, the Caribbean, Las Vegas, Hawaii, California, Florida and many more destinations are available for booking into February and March 2012.

"Now is the best time to book with WestJet Vacations for the lowest prices of the 2011-2012 winter season," said Chris Avery, Vice-President, WestJet Vacations. "With WestJet's flexible flight schedule, great destinations and friendly service, the hardest decision will be where to go next."

WestJet Vacations offers travel agents and their clients a suite of benefits. Besides an attractive portfolio of hotel product, WestJet's flexible flight schedule allows for many different duration-of-stay options for WestJet Vacations guests (i.e. multiple duration options beyond seven- and 14-night stays).

"Travel agents have many great reasons to book their clients with WestJet Vacations next winter," continued Chris Avery. "We appreciate the strong partnership we have with travel agents, and it shows through the multitude of benefits WestJet Vacations offers. We truly appreciate the support and loyalty from the travel agent community."

Travel agents booking WestJet Vacations packages also receive attractive front-end commissions. WestJet Vacations offers more transparent taxes where more of the total price is in the commissionable package price section rather than in the non-commissionable tax section. This approach results in almost one extra percentage point in commission.
