How to avoid high travel costs this holiday season
(NC) Whether it is friends and family, time away from work or school, over indulging in delicious food, or time to escape, the magic and appeal of the holiday season is subjective to everyone. For many Canadians the holiday season is a time for travel. Whether travelling domestically to spend time with family, or voyaging to a tropical paradise with that special someone, the holiday season is filled with endless travel opportunities.
While the necessity and appeal of holiday travel is pronounced, there are obstacles that can make holiday travel stressful and strenuous. With millions of Canadians planning vacation and travel at the same time, airline costs rise as seat availability becomes limited. The cost of air travel is not the only increased expense that comes with holiday travel. During the holiday season accommodation and vacation packages are also more expensive.
With over 4.6 million active Aeroplan Members, many Canadians are able to combat high holiday travel costs by redeeming their Aeroplan Miles. Aeroplan members have access to 28 airlines with more than 21,000 daily departures to over 1,000 destinations in 195 countries worldwide through the Star Alliance Network. Aeroplan Members can hit the Caribbean for as low as 40,000 miles for a roundtrip economy ticket and with Aeroplan's Last-Minute Travel tool they can find flights to many popular sun and North American destinations for travel within the next 14 days.
In addition to flights, members have access to over 1,000 speciality, merchandise, hotel, car rental, and experimental rewards that can be enjoyed at home or on vacation. Aeroplan has many hotel partners for all budgets including: Best Western, Sheraton, Westin, Delta Hotels and Resorts, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts and more.
The holiday season is a time for family, relaxation, and enjoyment. Whether travelling to see family, or to escape the realities of another winter in the Great White North, high holiday travel costs do not mean you have to alter your plans.
