Sunwing Vacations has brought back its “Best of the Best List” with more content, all-inclusive package options and everything agents need to help their clients take their getaways further than ever before.
Based on a combination of travel expert recommendations, star ratings and customer feedback, Sunwing delivers the best vacation experiences for all travellers all in one place, from the best new resorts to award-winning hotels, best spots for family-friendly and adults only escapes, the most luxurious swim-up suites, 5-star properties, best solo travel destinations and more.
“The return of our Best of the Best List brings an expanded collection of expert recommendations based on the types of vacations we know our customers are seeking out for their fall and winter getaways to paradise,” said Samantha Taylor, chief marketing officer at Sunwing Vacations Group. “Recent research confirms that, unsurprisingly, relaxing beachside or poolside, sampling the food and beverage and exploring resort-offered activities and amenities are all leading factors that contribute to the all-inclusive appeal, however customers are increasingly searching for destinations and resorts that offer more tailored experiences that satisfy their every want and need, down to age-specific amenities and daily entertainment and nightlife offerings."
"A valuable tool for vacation planning, agents can access nearly twice the amount of travel experiences with this year’s Best of the Best, plus Sunwing’s exceptional list of more all-inclusive offerings than any other vacation provider.”
From now until late October 2023, Sunwing will be unveiling seven collections of curated content across 37 categories, 16 of which are new for this year, centred around the travel experiences Canadians are craving.
A recent Sunwing survey conducted among members of the Angus Reid Forum found that the most important factor when selecting an all-inclusive is the resort’s star rating, cited by 70 per cent of respondents as the top consideration.
Meanwhile, resorts that feature dedicated sections for families or adults rank in the top three considerations for 47 per cent of respondents, and resorts that offer daily entertainment programs and nightlife rank in the top three among one-third (34 per cent) of respondents.
When asked the type of resort they’d like to visit for their next all-inclusive vacation, adults only (43 per cent), family friendly or all ages (26 per cent) and a luxury or 5-star resort with premium amenities (22 per cent) ranked highest among respondents, with Mexico (26 per cent), Costa Rica (13 per cent) and Cuba (12 per cent) at the top of their destination wish lists.
With more than 200 all-inclusive resorts, destinations and local hot spots included, agents can look forward to a variety of vacation inspiration in the 2023-2024 Best of the Best lineup with content and recommendations designed for cherished travel experiences:
