I love the philosophy of spending less on things and more on experiences but it can be a hard notion to get behind when everyone is touting super Black Friday or Cyber Monday sales. Who doesn’t like a good deal? Well Air Transat makes it easier to go for the experience option while grabbing a great deal thanks to their Transat Auction.
Entering it’s third year, the Transat Auction offers Canadian travel enthusiasts the opportunity to bid on their next big vacation. Looking to get a little sun in Panama or fly away to Europe? Mark November 30,2015 in your calendar for auction day. There will be 20 auctions planned consisting of all-inclusive packages to popular Sun destinations like Mexico, Curaçao, Panama and St. Maarten, as well as roundtrip flights to Europe.
Auction lots will be revealed Friday (November 27, 2015) on the site transatauction.ca. Wouldn’t you rather be shopping the European markets or enjoying a tropical cocktail on the beaches of St. Maarten instead of getting a bigger television? And if scoring a super deal on a getaway isn’t enough incentive, all funds raised from the Transat Auction go towards SOS Children’s Villages, a cause that benefits abandoned, orphaned children.
“The Transat Auction lots highlight the depth of our winter offering, be it South packages for families in Canadians’ favourite destinations, chic hotels on a tropical island or flights to romantic Europe. With starting bids as low as $5, consumers have a shot at getting incredible prices for their dream vacations, while giving back to an amazing cause,” says Geneviève LeBrun, Vice President, Marketing, Transat Tours Canada. “It’s a new take on Cyber Monday deals – a win for our consumers and a big win for SOS Children’s Villages, a cause that’s close to our hearts.”
