Resorts of Ontario, Ontario's leading association of resorts, inns, and lodges, is currently marketing the GIFT OF THE GETAWAY program offering Go Resorting gift certificates that may be used at over one hundred Resort of Ontario member accommodation properties and are ideal for the holiday gift-giving season

ORILLIA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 27, 2015) - Resorts of Ontario ( is focusing current marketing on the GIFT OF THE GETAWAY program. THE GIFT OF THE GETAWAY is an online "Go Resorting" gift certificate program that is backed up by a time sensitive radio and television marketing campaign. Go Resorting gift certificates are accepted by over 100 resorts, inns and B & B's across Ontario. These certificates can be used for accommodations, and also any experiences or services offered at these resort properties. The certificates are available in denominations of $50, $100, $250, and $500. The marketing campaign is timed to the holiday gift-giving season. Resorts of Ontario is a private not-for-profit association of over 100 member resorts, lodges, cottage resorts and country inns.

"We are finding that Boomers are especially hard to buy for at Xmas. Over the years, they have bought or been gifted pretty much everything they want or need. Many are not anxious to accumulate more things and may, in fact, be in the midst of or considering downsizing as they move into retirement years. By giving experiences and memories that last a lifetime, these gift certificates can bring a smile to a loved one's face, and it won't be one more thing that will end up being stored away somewhere. It's also an enticement to bring family or friends along to one of our many member resorts that are participating in the program. Boomers love to share with family and quite often the Go Resorting certificate can be a catalyst to trigger a family reunion or group getaway," says Grace Sammut Executive Director of Resorts of Ontario

The Go Resorting gift certificate recipients choose when they want to get away, which resort they want to get away to, the type of facilities/accommodations, and the experiences that they want to participate in at the resort. With each gift certificate comes a copy of the Go Resorting Magazine which showcases over a 100 beautiful year-round resorts and inns throughout Ontario that are participating in the Gift of the Getaway program. The certificates are also ideal for birthday gifts, anniversaries, weddings, and getaway ski, golf, or spa vacations. "Successful companies today realize that gifts and incentive programs are not an expense, but an investment that pays big dividends. We are finding the Gift of the Getaway program is also a unique and appreciated corporate gift for both clients and employees during the holiday season," adds Sammut.

Resorts of Ontario Gift Certificates are easy to purchase and are even easier to redeem. They can be used for any service at the participating property, such as accommodations, dining, spa, golf, and tours. Gift Certificates can be purchased by credit card and are shipped via Canada Post's Express Post Service. For security reasons, a signature is required upon receipt of the package that contains the Gift Certificate.
