A few weeks ago, we detailed an Air Canada Vacations deal to get people to start thinking about next winter’s getaway.

Well, it turns out Air Canada aren’t the only ones who want to make a deal – Air Transat is also offering a chance to get next winter’s vacation booked early for a discounted price.

Air Transat early booking promotion

Until June 30, 2019, when you book a trip between November 1, 2019, and April 30, 2020, you’ll pay a reduced deposit of $100.

As part of this deposit, you’ll get:

  • price drop guarantee,
  • the ability to change travel dates up to 21 days beforehand,
  • a future $50 travel voucher, and
  • a free upgrade to Option Plus, values at $109.

It’s a good promotion to not only save big but get some pretty sweet extras as well.

Like most promotions, there are terms and conditions. The full details of the promotion can be found here.
