WestJet Vacations launches scorching summer price promise

Guests can book with confidence; if the price drops, the difference will be refunded

CALGARY, March 16, 2012 /CNW/ - WestJet Vacations this week launched a price guarantee on vacation packages booked until May 31, 2012, for travel between April 16 and October 31, 2012.

"We want our guests to know they can book with confidence," said Chris Avery, Vice-President and General Manager, WestJet Vacations. "If they book a vacation package and then see a lower price offered by WestJet Vacations anytime up to 21 days prior to travel, we invite them to contact our call centre to verify the price -- and we will refund them the difference! Booking a summer vacation has never been easier."

The guarantee applies to WestJet Vacations packages to international destinations (including U.S.) that have the same origin city, destination, travel dates, flights, transfers, hotel, room category, meal plan and activities/attractions as the original booking. The price variance must be at least $25 for the guarantee to apply, but it may be applied multiple times up to 21 days prior to departure.

Taking advantage of WestJet's great guest experience and extensive international network, WestJet Vacations sells customized packaged vacations to many destinations this summer including U.S. destinations such as New York, Florida (Disneyworld), Chicago, San Francisco, Orange County Disneyland, Las Vegas and Hawaii, as well as throughout Mexico and the Caribbean.

Recently redesigned, is a great place to explore and book vacation packages, offering guests enhanced functionality, hotel and destination guides, photo and video galleries, and the ability to compare prices, write reviews and upload their own content.
