Why it Pays to Book Early

Imagine saving up all your hard earned cash to take a winter holiday, and then be told you were winning that holiday for free and getting every single penny back. Sounds too good to be true right? Well, for one Canadian couple in Victoria, it paid off to book their winter vacation early…literally.

In October 2014, Flight Centre teamed up with Air Transat Vacations and Nolitours to offer a special contest for anyone who booked their Transat Holidays or Nolitour winter vacation package with Flight Centre by automatically entering them into a draw to win their trip for free.

After selecting our winners, we decided to break the good news to them in person and capture it on video. Our clients Raven and Dominic walked into our store at Mayfair Mall in Victoria, with absolutely no idea about what surprise we had in store for them. In fact, this lucky couple will now be taking their winter vacation for absolutely free (brining a value of about $3,000 back into their bank account!)

This is just another example of why it pays to book your winter vacation early. More and more companies are offering early booking bonuses, incentives, and yes, even free trips, to Canadians who plan ahead and book their winter vacations earlier in the year.


That being said, there are still some great deals to be had, so if you’re still looking to take a winter holiday, be sure to contact one of our Travel Experts today by calling 1-877-967-5302, visiting your closest Flight Centre store, or browsing our vacation deals online!
