    Family Collection
    ALL FAMILIES ARE UNIQUE

    Our Family Collection delivers a safe, exciting time for kids and a relaxing holiday for parents, thanks to the variety of activities, facilities and promotions offered by the collection’s family-friendly resorts. The selection of room categories also makes it easier for families big and small to find suitable accommodation for their Sun vacation.
    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.

    This Collection is valid for departures until October 31, 2015.
    Distinction Collection
    ENJOY EXCLUSIVE SERVICES THAT ADD SOMETHING EXTRA TO YOUR PACKAGE
    Transat Holidays’ Distinction Collection was especially designed for travellers looking for an enhanced travel experience. Located on stunning beaches, these resorts offer exclusive privileges, added services and superior comfort. You’ll notice the difference the minute you arrive.

    Travel Basecamp
    Do you crave adventure and authentic travel experiences, but still want to enjoy the comforts and luxury of an all-inclusive vacation? Welcome to the best of both worlds! Go ahead and indulge yourself at the pool, the beach, the buffet and the disco, then get inspired with Travel Basecamp, a reality series developed by Transat about young adults who leave their inhibitions at the airport and use their all-inclusive hotel as a base for exploring their surroundings as they answer the call of adventure! If you can tear yourself away from the temptations of the hotel grounds now and then, you could be in for the Basecamp-style adventure of a lifetime!
