ACV unveils new self-service tools for improved booking experience
Pax Global Media

Air Canada Vacations (ACV) has unrolled updates to its self-service travel tools, aimed at providing travel advisors and customers with added flexibility and convenience post-booking. 

To offer greater flexibility, travel agents can now add ACV's Travel Protection CareFree and CareFlex up to 48 hours after the booking date. Private transfers can also be included post-booking.

Las Vegas excursions and activities, private transfers (when/if available), Club Mobay Lounge at Sangsters International Airport, Montego Bay, Jamaica, a round of golf at The Westing Reserve Conchal in Liberia, Costa Rica, and even meal plans (when/if available) are just some of the additions that can be added after the initial booking. 

Self-serve tools for cruise  

To help agents save time, ACV has also enhanced its self-serve tools for cruise bookings made online, GDS and its call centre. 

These enhancements include the ability to view and print bookings and e-documents, add payments, including Future Travel Credits, on reservations with options or a final payment, seat selections, and Aeroplan number. 

"These enhancements underscore our unwavering commitment to innovation and responsiveness to the needs of our valued travel partners,” said Nino Montagnese, VP at Air Canada Vacations, in a statement. "Through the continuous refinement of our self-service tools, Air Canada Vacations aims to enhance the booking experience for both travel agents and customers alike, ensuring a seamless and stress-free travel planning process." 

The additional tools are accessible through Air Canada Vacations’ website and all external distribution channels, including Sirev, Galileo Vacations, and Sabre Vacations through TripBook.
