Most Canadians only get one vacation a year, and they want to make sure they`re doing it right.
Being able to purchase through a known and trusted source is important, especially if you`re planning a honeymoon, you require a special vegetarian airline meal, or your child is travelling unaccompanied for the first time to visit her grandparents. When it comes to travel, a complex product, why wouldn`t Canadians go to someone they trust - their local travel agent?
Through TravelActive.com, travel consumers can enjoy the benefits of having a professional take care of all their travel needs. Canadians can search www.travelactive.com, with a database of over 6,000 vacation specials, and find a local travel agent who can provide professional advice and fulfill the purchase transaction. Canadians have the convenience of searching online but the security and reassurance of booking from a `brick and mortar` site.
With summer soon upon us, travel agencies are gearing up for a busy season, and TravelActive.com is a great way for travel agencies to diversify their marketing strategies, realize the benefits of the online environment, and promote their summertime `Great Deals` to local travel consumers.
