CAA has unveiled new luxurious travel packages designed for travellers who are ready to embark on an iconic Canadian adventure. Each package also features a CAA chartered jet experience with all business class seating in partnership with Air Canada.
The collection is timely as recent CAA research indicates that Canadian travellers are looking to experience their own backyard.
Tours and dates include:
To find out more about these experiences and what’s in store for travel in Canada and beyond, Travel Courier caught up with Susan Postma, Regional Manager, CAA.
CAA Travel has over 50 years of experience in helping members plan and book unforgettable travel excursions around the world. CAA’s travel research has shown us that Canadians are looking to experience travel in a more intimate setting at this time and are still looking to stay closer to home. CAA’s new Premier Tours Collection packages are part of CAA’s Extraordinary Explorations collection. By coupling the best of Canadian culture, food, and heritage, with the safety and luxury of travelling on a CAA chartered all business class plane, we are confident that these packages will give travellers a delightful option to start exploring again.
Since launching, what has the reaction been? Have these trips already garnered interest?
We have already seen immediate uptake since we launched CAA’s new Premier Tours Collection to members in our magazine. Our Platinum flagship tour is very close to selling out. What has been interesting is our Premier Collection has brought in a range of families inquiring about the trips.
Extraordinary Explorations has focused most of our 2022 line up on close-to-home experiences. We have sold out many of our tours and have included additional departures to match demand.
In addition to our Premier Collection – top sellers have been to Newfoundland and St. Pierre and Miquelon, Northwest Territories and Yukon, and Vancouver Island.
Are you noticing any other interesting booking trends or travel insights?
While many Canadians are choosing to stay close to home, CAA continues to see increased sales of travel insurance, and an incredible increase in Canadians eager to start travelling again. Some of the destinations of interest are Canada, Mexico, United States, Disney World, sun destinations for Winter 2023, river, and ocean cruising, and some international destinations such as Australia.
Can you share some details about Premier trips in Canada and some elements you are most excited about and why?
All Premier Collection Tours begin with an Air Canada flight on an exclusive all business class private charter jet. The packages encourage travellers to immerse themselves in every moment and create lasting memories. The premier packages feature everything from stargazing to whale watching; enjoying a pancake brunch on a maple farm to World Famous “Digby Scallops” in Nova Scotia; witnessing the highest tides in the world in New Brunswick to taking in Quebec’s most breathtaking waterfall and many more unique experiences in between.
CAA Travel wanted to ensure that each one of the tours was carefully crafted with a balance of excitement, wonder, indulgence, and relaxation. It was important not only to have memorable elements that would create the ultimate travel experience, but also give travellers peace of mind, that for CAA safety is always our top priority.
CAA’s Extraordinary Explorations Premier collection offers unique travel adventures designed for adventurous travellers looking to embark on a luxe vacation for an affordable price. Experience one-of-a-kind destinations, intriguing itineraries, and exceptional excursions. Available as escorted and hosted packages, every exploration is guaranteed to create lasting memories.
