Sunwing Vacations Urges Customers to Book Early to Avoid Disappointment

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - July 30, 2015) - Winter may seem a long way off, however Sunwing is encouraging Canadians to make their vacation plans early this year to avoid disappointment. "Strong demand from the U.S. market as well as emerging markets in Latin America are already affecting room availability over peak winter travel dates in many of the popular Canadian vacation destinations across Mexico and the Caribbean," says Andrew Dawson, President of Tour Operations at Sunwing Vacations.

The tour operator warns that the typical last minute deals may not be available this year due to tighter room availability combined with an increasingly unfavourable U.S. exchange rate. Dawson warns that, "As most resorts are contracted in U.S. dollars, we have been forced to implement a currency surcharge. Effective August 11th onwards, all new bookings will be subject to a $30 per passenger supplement."

Customers booking their Sunwing vacation now can take advantage of the pricing before the currency surcharge comes into effect, as well as some great early booking offers. Sunwing is currently offering an early booking bonus on vacation packages reserved by October 21, 2015 where customers can save up to $400 per couple.
