Experience Collection Duo
TWO UNIQUE EXPERIENCES, ONE TRIP
 
Vacations don’t have to come in neat little boxes. Transat Holidays is pleased to offer a line of packages that allows small groups of travellers to enjoy a more complete vacation experience by combining two very different destinations.

Imagine… you could spend part of your vacation soaking up the sun on a beautiful beach, and the other half exploring the cultural and historic attractions of an intriguing city or town down south. Or you could opt for a few days of snorkelling in a gorgeous coral reef, before relaxing to the sounds of the surf in a completely different destination. You will have plenty of time at leisure to do exactly as you please, but we will also be happy to recommend local activities and sights.


- Special welcome at both destinations

- Flexible stays of 7, 10 or 14 nights
- Transfers between the two destinations included
 

Available with all room categories. 

 

Experience Collection Escapade
IMMERSE YOURSELF IN LOCAL CULTURE WITH A 2-DAY ESCAPADE
 
Beyond its beautiful beaches and fabulous weather, the south offers a wealth of authentic travel opportunities. So we’ve put together a collection of out-of-the-ordinary experiences to complement your dream vacation.

When you book an Experience Collection Escapade package you’ll spend the first few nights at an all-inclusive resort, set off for two days and one night at a traditional, local hotel outside the resort without the bother of checking out, then return to your resort for the remainder of your stay.

It’s a wonderful way to discover local life, get up close and personal with nature or simply explore the lush countryside!


- Enriching experience to complement your vacation in the sun
- 24-hour excursion outside your resort to discover the culture of the local people at your destination
- One-night stay in traditional accommodations included
 
Available with all room categories.
Available until 2013-2014
Distinction Collection
ENJOY EXCLUSIVE SERVICES THAT ADD SOMETHING EXTRA TO YOUR PACKAGE
