Countdown to Summer
Sunwing is helping Canadians celebrate the much-anticipated start of summer.

Families can take their vacation budget even further when they book their summer getaway at an all inclusive resort during the Countdown to Summer Sale. Plus, depending on their selected resort, travellers can enjoy even more savings with Kids Stay, Play and Eat FREE deals, no single parent supplement fees, exclusive inclusions and more.

“There are several hidden costs associated with staycations that many don’t always account for when planning,” said Jacqueline Grossman, Vice President of Marketing and Corporate Communications. “Between booking activities to keep children entertained, steep gas prices and food and beverage, the costs of vacationing close to home can add up quickly. When you opt for an all-inclusive, resort-based vacation down south food and entertainment options are often included; meaning that your travel budget goes much further.”

Travellers who book during the promotion can stay just steps from one of the world’s most beautiful beaches for less at Vista Sol Punta Cana. Surrounded by lush tropical gardens and the pristine shores of Bavaro Beach, this Dominican Republic resort is perfect for the quintessential beach vacation. Families can stay comfortably in spacious accommodations that sleep five or more and take advantage of exclusive inclusions like no single parent supplement fee and Kids Stay, Play and Eat FREE deals.

Sun-seekers can also take advantage of incredible deals at top-rated family resort Grand Princess All Suites and Spa Resort in Riviera Maya. This beachfront property features an exciting kids club, sprawling swimming pools and a variety of water sports, from kayaking to snorkelling. For an added level of luxury, guests can upgrade to the Platinum Club for exclusive resort areas, 24-hour room service, discounted green fees at the nearby golf course and more.

Families can take their vacation budget even further at Riu Negril in Jamaica. This newly-renovated resort offers activities and amenities for everyone in the family including a kids pool with water slides and a wide range of kid-friendly dining options. Plus, Sunwing guests can enjoy exclusive RIU-topia inclusions like unlimited reservation-free dining at specialty restaurants, spa credits and complimentary Wi-Fi.
