TDC & Air Miles partnership expands travel options

Transat Distribution Canada and Air Miles have expanded their partnership, giving collectors more travel options and ways to book.

Effective Aug. 13, 2017, Air Miles Packaged Vacation and Cruise (PVC) bookings will now be completed through Transat Distribution’s travel agency network.

Through Transat Distribution Canada’s travel agency network, collectors will be able to use their Miles for more travel destinations and at more travel partners than ever before, including, Collette, Encore Cruises TravelBrands, AmaWaterways, Tours Chanteclerc and many more.

Collectors will now be able to redeem exclusively online for Marlin Travel, Club Voyages, Transat Travel, TripCentral Atlantic Canada and TravelPlus eVouchers (currently available using Cash Miles) and physical Certificates (available Aug. 13 in $100 denominations using Dream Miles). These can be used towards PVC travel bookings with participating preferred partners through any of Transat Distribution’s 286 participating travel agency locations across Canada or through the TDC call centre.

To make it easier and faster to receive the physical Dream Certificates, Air Miles will be shipping certificates within 72 business hours from redemption, at no cost to the Collector.

In 2018, together with Transat Distribution Canada, Air Miles will be introducing a new PVC website, enabling collectors to use their Miles immediately for PVC bookings online, 24/7 with participating partners.

Effective Aug. 13, collectors will get one Mile for every $20 spent (versus one Mile for $35) on any PVC booking with a participating Transat Distribution travel agency. This includes any additional cash portion spent on the PVC booking, beyond the certificate value. All other travel-related rewards such as standalone flights, car rentals and hotels can continue to be booked online through www.airmiles.ca.
