itravel2000 Bets Everyone Wants Five Inches... of Snow

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 7, 2013) - itravel2000 has launched its popular 'Let it Snow' promotion, which gives Canadian consumers who book with the company between October 1st and October 31st, 2013 the opportunity to win their trip for free - if it snows more than five inches on New Year's Day.

Canadians looking to defrost during the popular winter travel season spend, on average, $1,500 per person. The Farmer's Almanac predicts a harsh winter with "significant snowfalls forecast for parts of every zone" in Canada. Official measurements will be taken at designated weather stations on January 1, 2014 and those who booked in the qualifying time period, for travel between November 1, 2013 and April 30, 2014 will be refunded the cost of their vacation, less the taxes and fees. Past winners have come from Montreal (2008) and Halifax (2009).

Participating partners include: Sunwing Vacations, Signature Vacations, Sunquest Vacations, WestJet Vacations, Transat Holidays and Nolitours. Let it Snow offers can also be combined with other promotions available through itravel2000, such as reduced deposits and price drop protection, giving consumers the most bang for their buck this holiday season. Plus, new Winter Survival Prizes have been added:

  • All bookings made on October 1st to October 14th will qualify for the Early Bird draw for a 3-day Ski Getaway to Mont Tremblant
  • 25 weekly prizes, consisting of a $50 gift card for draws that will take place on October 8, 15, 22, and Nov 1, 2013

"The launch of Let it Snow is one of our favourite times of year and we are always looking for ways to make it bigger and better, as seen with the addition of the early bird and weekly prizes," said Nicole Dalton, senior marketing manager at itravel2000. "We have also received a lot of interest from customers prior to the launch, which is a gratifying testament to the success of this program!"
