Transat reveals March winners in Surprise Dates Contest

Transat has announced its second winners for its Surprise Dates Contest, part of the company’s 30th anniversary celebrations.

They are: Diana Fournier of Glenny Travel LTD in Fort Erie, Ontario (Ontario-Atlantic), Kathy Hannah of Roblin Travel Service LTD in Chilliwack, British Columbia (Western Canada) and Charlotte Ringeard of CAA Voyages in Quebec City (Quebec).

They have all won a package for two, including Air Transat flights in Economy class and a one-week, all-inclusive stay at Grand Bahia hotels. The prizes were awarded as follows: Grand Bahia Principe La Romana in Dominican Republic (Diana Fournier), Luxury Bahia Principe Akumal Don Pablo Collection in Riviera Maya, Mexico (Kathy Hannah) and Luxury Bahia Principe Fantasia Don Pablo Collection in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic (Charlotte Ringeard)

Also, $30 in Bonbon rewards were attributed to these agents following a random draw among all participants: Jenn Black – Tripcentral Hamilton and Linda Landry – The Travel Store Prince Edward Island (Ontario-Atlantic), Tabatha Bennet – Flight Centre Chilliwack and Cassandra Finkbeiner – AMA Travel Alberta (Western Canada), Cindy Augé – Club Voyages Raymonde Potvin and Geneviève Hogue – Club Voyages Élysée (Quebec region).

Last Monday, Transat announced its second surprise date: March 13, the day in 2006 when Transat A.T. inc. acquired Canadian travel agency network Thomas Cook Travel Limited, marking an important milestone in the evolution of Transat's distribution sector.

To mark its 30th anniversary, Transat will draw at random a total of 30 surprise trips for two this year—three each month from February to November— from among eligible travel consultants in three Canadian regions: Quebec, Ontario-Atlantic and Western Canada. The draws will be held on predetermined (but secret) milestone dates in Transat’s history. To enter, there’s no need to register anywhere; contest entry is automatic as soon as a consultant anywhere in Canada sells a Transat flight, package or cruise on the surprise day.

The next surprise date is in April.
