What does that mean? Well there are a lot of Fly Free promotions out there right now, so I wanted to explain what some of them are and how they work. The first one is Apple Vacations exclusive Fly Free promotion to Cancun and Punta Cana. Everyone is looking for a deal, Apple Vacations knows that. What we have done is taken the package prices at select hotels, and reduced the price (at least) by the airfare cost already in that package. To Explain – if the package you were buying was $1,200.00 a person, and the air portion of that package was $400.00, now the package is now $800.00 per person. So–you are Flying Free! We have done this in several cities including Philadelphia, Baltimore, Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati. The minimum discount in Columbus is $1,000.00 per couple, and the other cities is (minimally) $800.00 per couple. The discount is in the new package / advertised price and is automatic at the time of booking. No form to fill out, no calls to make. This Fly Free promotion you must book by 1/28!
The Nassau Paradise Island Promotion Board, in conjunction with the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism, is running a Fly Free on Companion Airfare. The Grand Bahama Island Tourism Board, also in conjunction with the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism, is running a Fly Free on Companion Airfare. They are both nationwide promotional offers for winter 2010. The Free Companion Airfare promotion will pay for the companion’s base airfare from anywhere in the USA (except Alaska and Hawaii), when booking an air inclusive vacation package with a minimum stay of 4 nights (3 nights from Florida) at select hotels. Book by March 3, 2010 for travel through June 23. March 19 – April 18 is blacked out for travel. For both of the Bahamas promotions you have to do one extra step to get the discount, but Apple Vacations will make it easy for you! If you book with a travel agent, have them call our reservations center. Our reservations agent will verify the booking meets requirements and discount your package by taking off the companion base rate. If you book it yourself through our reservations center or on-line you have to advise the reservation agent at the time of booking; or call in after you make the booking on-line to 1-800-517-2000. We’ll verify you meet the requirements and adjust the booking. Apple Vacations will take care of the rest. Keep in mind it is select hotels. In Grand Bahama that is: Our Lucaya Reef Village, Radisson Our Lucaya Resort and Viva Wyndham Fortuna Beach Resort. For Nassau / Paradise Island participating hotels are: Atlantis Paradise Island, British Colonial Hilton Nassau, Comfort Suites, The Cove Atlantis Paradise Island, Harborside Resort at Atlantis, Paradise Island Harbour Resort All-Inclusive, The Reef Atlantis, Sandals Royal Bahamian Spa Resort & Offshore Island, Sheraton Nassau Beach Resort and Wyndham Nassau Resort.
