Tips for Families Travelling with Air Canada Vacations

 

Create lasting family memories. Turn your daydreams into dream days!

Here are some tips to help you make the most of your time together during your next family getaway.

Book early. You want to be sure to book a hotel that has all the amenities you need for your perfect family vacation. Booking early means you’re sure to get the destination, hotel and room category you’re looking for. Often times, you’ll also be able to take advantage of awesome promotions like saving $400 per family when you book with Air Canada Vacations.

Getting kids ready for an exciting vacation. Build anticipation by making a countdown calendar. Get them involved in the travel planning by making a list of items that they wish to bring. They will be thrilled to pack their own bag.

Travel with basic medicines. An easy way to ruin a day of travel or possibly an entire trip is to have a sick family member. Whether your child has an upset stomach from the bumpy bus ride to your destination, or an ear pain from the changing altitude when flying on an airplane, you want to be prepared to make the sick family member feel better as quickly as possible. It’s always a good idea to take a few over-the-counter medications your family might need while traveling.

Fly direct. If you’re flying with kids, you probably have strollers, backpacks, stuffed animals and favourite blankets to carry along with you. The best way to stay stress free is to book direct. Air Canada Vacations offers multiple daily direct flights to destinations throughout Mexico and the Caribbean.

Whether you plan to lounge on the beach or go on your own adventure, use these tips to plan ahead so you don’t have to worry about a thing!

Fair Setup is in Full Swing!

Our crew has been hard at work getting the Fair set up for opening weekend! Hats off to our entire team, and extended team, who have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to create a fresh new Fair at the PNE.

From handling precious cargo straight from the set of Game of Thrones®, setting up the Chevrolet Performance stage for the Mosaic Music Series, rounding up our delicious food vendors, to putting together our brand new Get Animated Exhibit! They really do it all.

Ever wonder how the PNE grounds look just days before The Fair opens? The site transforms within the span of two weeks, so what you see here will be nothing like what you’ll see in person starting this Saturday!

Check out a few behind the scenes set-up photos below!
