CheapOair Expands With the Launch of CheapOair.ca for Canadian Travelers

Leading Online Travel Agency Creates New Site Catering to the Canadian Market

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Apr 19, 2011) - CheapOair.com, a top ten online travel booking agency, announced today the launch of its new Canadian counterpart, www.CheapOair.ca. Customers in Canada will now have customized access to CheapOair's product portfolio, including the lowest guaranteed fares and rates on over 100 million flights and 100,000 negotiated hotels and vacation packages, all refreshed daily.

"CheapOair.ca empowers Canadian travelers to take advantage of deals made specifically for them," said CEO and President, Sam Jain. "We are very excited about this addition to the CheapOair brand and plan further global expansions in the future for our customers."

CheapOair.ca has more flight and vacation options that are Canada-focused, making it more convenient for travelers in that market to find deals and save money. Fares and transactions are in Canadian dollars which eliminate currency exchange differences, so travel purchases are more affordable. Fares and rates are also quoted in up to 24 different currencies.

For the launch, CheapOair is offering special instant booking discounts. In addition to the site's daily "CheapOExclusive" offers and "Border City Deals" for under $199 CAD, customers can also save up to an additional $15 on hotel, flight or vacation bookings using Coupon Code PR15, and/or discounts of $10 off per person up to $50 on group bookings on flights and vacation packages by using PR50.

Bi-lingual French and English customer service agents are available 24 hours a day/seven days a week, via a toll free number and email response as well as in person at the Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal offices.

CheapOair.ca also launched a companion travel blog (http://blog.cheapoair.ca/), similar to its successful and rapidly growing CheapOair.com counterpart. The CheapOair Canada blog covers the latest news affecting Canadian travelers by expert travel bloggers who contribute to media such as AOL Travel Canada, Westjet's up! Magazine, and more. Readers can find valuable travel information, news, planning tips, and fun things to do while on vacation. Key features include:

  • Today's O Deal, highlighting cheap flights daily
  • "Cheap Travel Deals" and immediate searching and booking for flights, hotels and cars
  • Video Stories
  • Top 5 and 10 Lists offering informative travel tips and featured destinations
