My best dream making experience...
I am internally greatfull for the things I never appreciated before and never realised as I was younger that I have been gifted as a person and others haven't. I am flawed.. I complain and wish for more and occasionally pout that I don't have some things others do. I am partly accountable for that ...I know when you really want something you can make it happen any way need be for yourself. I don't always know how. It's not an excuse just my explanation and I suppose ....because I'm lost and seek a little more guidance then others.
One thing I have realized I would love more then anything a little later in life has been shocked to my system after this past 2 years. It has been long and trying and absolutely could be worse then others so thank you universe...but I still am human and I still wish and dream. I have been all over Canada however never once left or been to the ocean at any available destination Canada has to offer.
I want more then ever to be able to go to Vancouver to the farthest island as close to the most open inviting part of the ocean and write my name in the sand with love and touch my toes in the ocean for the first time.
It's all I want. I tried this past summer however I just couldn't afford the flight so my goal was to drive but the money for gas; place to stay once there just couldn't be obtained and unfortunately I had to put off this bucket list priority of mine
I would love to swim with sharks and dolphins and feel the salt water on my skin...the warmth and breath of the ocean.
It's my dream and I will make it happen...may take a while...months ...years. but it's going to be the biggest gift to myself for myself.
What I want to establish from my novel I wrote lol is that if you want to travel, have already haven't, or haven't ever ...it takes alot of heart and soul and do it for u only u and it will be accomplished just not necessarily when u expect it would be.
Be mind strong heart strong will strong...
It will come.
Thanks for listening
Much love.

I had a client who had been through a difficult year. She wanted to take her elderly Mother and two teenage boys on their first ever family vacation. She chose a cruise from Port Canaveral. She was such a nervous traveller. I booked everything from door to door and kept in touch with her via text on her departure days telling her what to do in the airports, going to the cruise pier etc. She was so appreciative and they had such a great time that this was my most satisfying dream making experience

I had a lady in and never went to Disney before and she was taking her grandson. She was so excited! she bounced in her chair when I told her things about the park and things everyone doesn't know to find thought the park. When I gave her the tickets she gave me a great big hug and skipped out of the office. Put a smile on my face! When she came back she was still excited as before she left.

Was being able to make this bride's dreams come true with her fairy tale destination wedding. Not only did she get married at Dreams Las Mareas, Air Canada Vacations and I as her travel agent were there to assist every step of the way. Air Canada was there from the onset up until the very end. They Price Match another competitor, added connectors from various gateways in Canada, accommodate American guests with hotel only rooms, provided a contact person in Costa Rica to book excursions. ACV upgraded the bride and groom to business class seating and arranged private shuttle for 92 guests to arrive to the resort. The bride and groom had a private lobby entrance and received a welcome gift basket and note on my behalf. Their experience has been a dream come true for them and has helped me to grow my home based agency. Thank you Air Canada Vacations for making my clients' dreams and their wedding come true.

I enjoy booking all trips for my clients because I love hearing how confident and happy they are when they return. Recently booked a trip to Europe for a couple using Air Canada Flights. They enjoyed flying with Air Canada and how great reviews on their return. I would love to fly to Europe for the first time with Air Canada to be able to share with clients the same joy and excited when booking them with Air Canada. feeling confident they will have a wonderful trip.

As a new agent working from home. My first clients wanted a trip to Jamaica after researching different tour operators, the best price came in from Air Canada Vacations. Not only was I extremely happy my clients were as well. They are celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary in Jamaica in Nov. They fell so confident that their reservation was made with ACV. Having my cllients happy makes me very happy as well. I will continue to always check in to see what ACV offers when booking !!

I sent my sister off to Jamaica at the Moon Palace Resort in Ochos Rios. She just loved the city, the people, the hotel. Everything she enjoyed. Just hearing her talk about how much she enjoyed it and would love to go back made me a little jealous. I would love the opportunity to go to Jamaica especially to see the Moon Palace Resort.

Booked clients to Mexico City. Everyone says that Mexico is unsafe. The clients had a great time taking the subway in Mexico City. On it you get a massage ,with all the passengers bumpng into each other, aroma therapy, from all the arms in the air and a spa from the humidity on the train (all a good joke told by the locals). They took the train to the Shrine of the Lady of Guadalupe, which is way faster than surface transport because of the traffic gridlock through out the city. Where they stayed it was walking diastance to Chapultepec Park and Zoo. They also did day trips to various sites around the city. It was, in their words, an awesome and safe experience.

I booked my clients to the Sandals in Barbados for there honeymoon. During the research process I learned a lot about Barbados and have dreamed of 1 day seeing it for myself. Being from the West coast it's not always easy getting proper flights and pricing to the Caribbean so we always find ourselves heading to Mexico. It would be an incredible dream of mine to surprise my husband with a trip to Barbados ....he always works so hard for us and I feel that's the least I could do.

Was booking my mother in law and sister in law to Jamaica. My mother in law had just retired and had never travelled outside of Canada. I booked them both business class to Montego Bay and they stayed at what used to be the Renaissance Jamaica Grand and attended our wedding at what was Grand Lido Sans Souci (now Couples Sans Souci). It was wonderful to have them there along or family and friends. It was 14 ofm us in total and everyone talks about how wonderful this trip and wedding was even now 15 years later!. This trip gave my mther in law the taste of travel and she has not stopped since!

I recently booked my entire immediate family and their families on an all-inclusive holiday. Everyone but my sister and her husband could afford to go. So, being a great sister (and travel agent) I booked them and they are going to surprise the rest of the family when they arrive. I can't wait to see the look on their faces!!

It's hard to pick one experience, but the best ones are always when there is an element of surprise. Whether is is a delivery of a bouquet of red roses with an invitation to extended family, parents, siblings, children to attend an all expenses paid Caribbean cruise with loads of fun "family" activities throughout the week, a Reality Week incentive trip where the week finishes up with the final night dancing under the stars with a famous Canadian rock band, or an intimate getaway for two, where a surprise is in store not only for the invited guest, but also the one who booked the trip. It truly is all about sharing and creating memories with family and friends. Irmy Shaw/AMA Travel

Having 4 children we couldn't really go on big trips when the children were little. We had driven to Florida a few times and rented cottages in the summer. Once I became a travel agent one of my dreams was to get the whole family to go on a trip together. Although all my children are basically grown up now, it was still a dream of mine to be with them on their first real vacation.
So last Oct I booked a trip to Mexico for my 4 children, and my grandson and my husband and I. One of the boyfriends was pretty excited and wanted to join us. As is typical of everything we do as parents, we expected them to all pay a little towards their trip so that they would appreciate it more, however, we paid the bulk.
We had the best week ever. Air Canada Vacations went out of their way to help us enjoy the destination and see the sights. Although I totally expected our children to spend a lot of time on their own away from mom and dad, I have to say they totally surprised me and we spent pretty much the whole trip as a family unit.
Here are my favourite quotes from this trip. My son: "I can't believe how much money I have wasted in the past when I could have been taking more trips like this: The boyfriend who joined us: "When are we going again, although I have been on lots of trips with my family, I had the most fun on this one." My grandson while still at the resort: "This place is awesome, when can we come back." Husband: "We should have done this years ago". Me: "So glad I could make this dream come true".

Going on a cruise was on our bucket list for years and so on our 25th anniversary my husband and I decided to save and make it a reality. I had spent hours online trying to find the perfect trip. Although I was pretty sure I knew which one we wanted to book we decided to go into an agency to double check some of the details. While booking this once in a lifetime opportunity, or so we thought, the agent had listened to how I searched for the perfect cruise and how much we wanted to travel. She understood that we couldn't afford to do it much and out of the blue suggested I consider becoming an agent myself.
My husband and I enjoyed this trip so much that when we got back he suggested I take the steps necessary to become an agent. 5 years later we have been on several trip and we are on our way to host a Crystal Cruise next month. I can't thank that agent enough for suggesting I become an agent. She not only shared our dream in making our 25th memorable she shared our dream in helping me to have the opportunity to make travel a big part of our lives. Thanks Susan for understanding the hearts of your clients and I take that lesson on with me in making other peoples 'dreams' come true.

My clients had an incredible dream vacation to Palm Island in the Grenadines. It had been their dream to visit Palm Island for many years and they went last year. It was very magical as Palm Island is very remote and a small island off Barbados. They said the sand and water were truly incredible and they experienced clear, warm waters and white sand beaches. They so enjoyed their 2 week vacation that they plan to return.

Last November, I booked 8 friends on an adult only holiday to the Mayan Riviera. All of them raved about how awesome their holiday was from start to finish, flights from both PEI & Quebec were seamless and smooth with great connections for all. Air Canada Vacations has a fantastic relationship with Bahia resorts and this gang had top notch accommodations at the Sian Ka'an in the Mayan Riviera. They all felt that every aspect of their holiday was perfect. THANK YOU for having great flights and top notch properties that ensure that clients returning from their holiday want a 'do over' because the loved it so much.

Booked 4 single ladies on a university break week to Cuba with acv on a great deal looking to go for fun in the sun. A few days later a couple of guys wanted to go on the same type of trip. I booked them on the same package. On the transfer to the hotel they all started chatting and realized they were on the same flight and from the same city. They ended up having a great week. One couple fell in love on that holiday and got married a few years later. I booked their wedding group with acv that year back to the same hotel where they met. They got married on the beach with all their friends and family.

When clients ask for a memorable trip, be it a package, flight or tours/excursions, I always go to the Air Canada Vacation website first to check out the vast offerings...so when a niece was married in April 2015 in Arizona, I booked my extended family to do a tour of the Grand Canyon/Sedona. It was a very wise decision - the itinerary was great, the tour guide was not only knowledgeable but also funny and entertaining. The tour also included a packed lunch which was delicious and gourmet quality; we were impressed. It turned out to be a very enjoyable day for all of us in the tour (11 people).

I have sent passengers for tours in Paris, Scotland, New York through ACV and all of them have returned happy and with positive feedbacks. Even when there are problems during and after these trips, the ACV post voyage response is always efficient and timely which results in making the pax satisfied with the outcome. Keep up the good work ACV!

My best and favourite dream making experience was with my parents. It was their 25th Wedding Anniversary and I knew they couldn't exactly afford much... I come from a family of 6 kids with 14 grandkids for my parents and they never really think to spend much on themselves... I finally convinced them that for their 25th wedding anniversary last year they needed to do something where they could both relax and enjoy! They chose Cuba because my dad was interested in the history and culture and it was their first ever all-inclusive! They couldn't believe how well they were treated and they deserved it! I don't think my dad realized that you don't have to tip $10 a dinner like you do here and that waitress always had their table reserved (he just couldn't figure out why) ... Or that giving the hat off his head to gardener (who probably normally doesn't get any recognition) would bring him to tears. He had also taken a a fishing pole and supplies and given it to another individual who couldn't thank my dad enough. I like creating dream trips that fufill my dreams, the dreams of my loved ones and all the people they encounter along the way. One day I would LOVE to send my parents to England as my mom is from there and my dad has always wanted to take her back to her roots. Working in the travel industry hopefully one day I get them there!

My favorite dream making experience was a wedding group to Cuba. They had family from B. C. , Alberta and all over the Maritimes. Most of them had never been outside of Canada was it was quite the experience to answer all their questions and feel all the excite prior to their departure as well as here all of their feed back once they returned.

It was a quiet Saturday in the office, and two ladies walked into my office and sat down at my desk. Their request was a trip to Paris for 3 people. The only kicker was they needed to leave within the next few days and only stay about 4-5 days. So without asking too many personal questions as to why such a short trip and so immediate the two ladies proceeded to tell me this was a "Bucket List" trip. A "Bucket List trip for their best friend who was battling cancer. Their friend received some devastating news the day before that the chemo wasn't working and she only had a short time left. So her friends wanted to make this trip happen for her. So my adrenaline kicked into high gear to ensure that this trip happened for the three of them. It was difficult to find space as all of the hotels were on request, so with some diligence I found them some great flights and a hotel that was in a perfect location for them. After I gave them a big emotional hug and told them what special friends they both were they took the information to their ill friend for final approval and to make sure everything was sufficient and safe for her to fly. The ladies returned the next day and confirmed the trip for the three of them and flew out 3 days later for an unforgettable bucket list/best friends trip to Paris. I left the office that day full of joy for the ladies, but also great sadness for their friend. But it felt great to know that I helped these best friends get where they needed to go.

I have been in this industry for a few years now and I have gone to school for the tourism industry. I have struggled all my life trying to be successful in this career and have gone through a lot doors being closed in my face for opportunities that I wanted. My mom has been the greatest support system in my life. She too wanted to be in this industry but was not able to do it so she's happy that I am in this industry . A few years ago I surprised my mom with a vacation for her and I to go to Jamaica for a week. My mom was completely surprised that i did this gesture. It was a way of me saying thank you for always being there. We stayed at the Grand Palladium Jamaica and we loved every minute of it. It was such a relaxing trip where we just laid on the beach, soaked up the sun and had cocktails. My mom is such an amazing person and she is the best travel buddy I have!

My first official travel agent booking was for a family reunion going on a Disney Cruise to Alaska for 25 people...and it was for my family! It was a multi-generation family reunion with grandparents, parents and kids for two main families and it would be the first time that we would all get together with all the kids and spouses in the same place since we were kids! We all grew up together but have since sprawled out in different cities throughout Canada and the US. Two sets of grandparents, 8 sets of parents and 8 kids under the age of 8! We all got together in Vancouver and sailed aboard the Disney Wonder to Alaska for a most memorable family reunion vacation that we will remember for the rest of our lives! And for some members, this was also their first Disney vacation, first time on an airplane, first time on a cruise, etc....it was a memorable full of first time opportunities!

I was contacted by a lady in her mid twenties who wanted to go south for her birthday with her friend. I talked to her about her interests and what type of vacation she was interested in. As soon as I got off the phone I started looking in to the resorts and places that would best suit her needs. She is a single Mom working 2 jobs to support herself and her son and for her birthday week she wanted a mix of relaxation and fun nightly entertainment where for once she didn't have to worry about early morning starts. I found a great vacation package offered by Air Canada Vacations that had the perfect mix of some good R and R yet close to the party scene in Cancun, Mexico. The client returned beaming from ear to ear saying that they must have thought she was royalty the way she was treated from beginning to end starting with her flights. She loved the atmosphere and night lift that Cancun has to offer and said that the resort was everything and more for what she could've imagined. This truly was a dream vacation for her that exceeded all expectations she had. It was an honour to be able to plan this dream trip for her, a truly unselfish and deserving woman!

I have a group of travelers that have been booking their Christmas Vacations for the last 5 years through me and this year was no exception. They booked back in late April, as they do every year, but this year there was a tragic accident.

Over the Victoria Day Long Weekend in May, one of the travelers took a tragic fall down a small cliff in the woods while hiking and she ended up breaking her back and is paralyzed from the waist down. The group organizer Jeannie called me on the following day in tears as she did not know what would happen now with the trip.

We gave it a week to get all the info from the doctors and it turned out that they encouraged her to get stronger and go. With the help of Jeannie and her other friends that travel, they fully renovated her house and kept her spirits high and with that, she is still going on the trip and realizes that even though she now has this handicap, she will still be able to enjoy the yearly vacations with her friends and keep her dreams alive.

My sister's best friend wanted to go away at Christmas. She is a teacher and had limited dates to choose from. Her and her adult daughter wanted to go somewhere off the beaten path, safe and reasonably priced. Air Canada Vacations had just the product! A stay in beautiful Nevis was just the thing. A direct flight to St. Kitts, a ferry transfer to Nevis and a ride to their hotel was all included. They had an upgraded room and when one wasn't available, Air Canada Vacations called the resort to straighten up the mix up on December 26th, a day when some people weren't even working! They had a beautiful vacation and made memories to last a lifetime.

I had the pleasure of helping my client plan and book an amazing once in a lifetime surprise 25th anniversary trip for his wife. He told me that he wanted to travel by all modes of transportation (plane, train, car, boat, event hot air balloon!) and he wanted to be gone for exactly 25 days. Each day was to symbolize a year of their marriage. He was going to do an Amazing Race format with clues and roadblocks each day. She would have no idea where the next destination would be or how long they would be gone for. Each day he would give her an envelope with memories from that year of marriage including photos, songs, videos along with many other things! The first stop on their trip was Toronto staying at the Fairmont Royal York, next they went to New York City, after that they went accross the pond and embarked on a Viking River Cruise! There's more yet! Then they moved over to Italy and stayed in a villa in the Tuscan countryside where they planned the hot air balloon ride. After that they spent their last couple of days in Amsterdam. What an AMAZING thing for a husband to do! I was alomst in tears when he told me his plan. All of the ladies in the office couldn't believe how much thought he put into this trip. When they returned I called them into the office because I wanted to hear all about her reactions each day. She was absolutley astounded each day with what he had planned for her. She said she cried each day when he would give her their marriage memories and the amazing race envelope. Hands down the most memorable booking of my career and the BEST dream vacation that I have ever sold!

This one is tear jerker. I booked 2 young sisters along with their husbands to Fiji for one week in Spring 2015. The reason for their trip was for the sisters to spread their mother's ashes in the Fiji ocean. Their mother's dying wish was to travel to Fiji. So the 2 daughters made their mother's wish come true. This is a true dream come true. Even for those that have already crossed to the other side. This is by far my most emotional booking making this dream come true for the 2 sisters and their mother.

I recently was able to book a dream vacation for a family of 13 from across Canada on a family vacation. They had recently lost their father/grandfather and Christmas this year was going to be a tough one without him. Being able to bring together this family on a dream trip together makes my heart smile

I had recently sold an Greek Island Hopper package with ACV to a lovely couple that had not travelled in some time, but it was their dream to go to Greece and see Athens and the beauty of the Islands. They did have concerns about how the hopper package would be accomplished and as well with the financial issues that the country was going through and how that would affect their travel, but in the end the trip was a complete success and they had an amazing vacation. They said the package itinerary with ACV was so smooth and executed so well - couldn't have gone better and they absolutely loved Greece! With feedback like that how can we not love our jobs!

As a Dream maker for over 25 years there have been so many wonderful dream vacations I have planned for my clients. I have watched children grow through their vacations together and clients have their last vacation together. One of my most memorable is two friends that had wanted to go away together and I had recommended Sandals but had to tell them there was only King beds. They said that was ok. Then they started travelling every year.. Finally he popped the question and back to Sandals they went to get married.

I had the pleasure of planning my cousin's destination wedding to Puerto Vallarta with Air Canada Vacations. Her and I have always been very close and it was such an honor to plan such a special moment in her life. I was fortunate enough to be able to travel with the group along with several other of my family members and we had such an amazing week at the Dreams Puerto Vallarta and the wedding was simply beautiful. Moments like that are truly why I love being in this industry!

My best dream making experience is in progress! Friends and family always ask me where I'm going next. When I started telling them Varadero, everyone wanted to come. For fun, I requested a group quote from ACV and the pricepoint was excellent. I let everyone know and suddenly there's 20 friends and family in the group who will be going on vacation with me in January 2016

I am new to the travel industry and sold my first package holiday last week! I was so excited to have my first booking. I sent a lovely couple to Grand Sunset princess Resort in Mexico. I had a short time frame to plan this trip for them but I got it done with some time to spare. I can't wait to book more vacations like this in the future.

I have many dream maker moments but I am going to share a very special one for this contest.
In 2009 I took my sister with me to Barbados with Air Canada Vacations, the attached picture is of us having dinner in the St. Lawrence Gap area. We had a wonderful week there, filled with delicious food and beautiful scenery (two of my sister's favourite things). We ended up renting a car and touring the island, we met people and formed lasting friendships and took advantage of what Barbados had to offer us in our short, but sweet stay.
My sister fell in love with Barbados. She and her husband returned (with Air Canada Vacations) every March until 2013. A brain tumour was discovered in her right frontal lobe, which led to hospitalization. That was the hardest vacation I have ever had to cancel. After 16 months of fighting, she lost her battle to brain cancer. During her treatment she found comfort in the memories of places she had been, but Barbados was always spoken of with the most fondness.
In honour of her love of Barbados, my family will be planning a trip there to watch the sunset she loved so dearly.

Crafting a custom itinerary for 2 ladies in their 80's taking a partial world cruise. They spent 7 days in Singapore before the cruise and I arranged everything from flights to transfers to private guided tours. Not only did they have the most amazing time, I had a great time planning the details as well! And the best part is the friendship with clients that grows along the way!

Last winter I had the privilege to helping a couple plan a dream vacation to the Mayan Riviera during a very difficult season of their lives. He had been diagnosed with cancer and was in between treatments and feeling good so they decided to go on a special (and potentially their last) vacation together. Air Canada Vacations gave me extra assurance that their travel plans would go smoothly, and this was the case and the couple had a great vacation. In the midst of this couple's struggles, it was great to help them plan a week of rest and relaxation for them to create some very special memories together!

I have a great couple that every year right before Christmas they go down south, always taking Air Canada Vacations because you make connections from Charlottetown (thank you for that). They have become huge fans of Bahia Properties over the years staying in Dominican Republic, Jamaica and now most recently booked back to Mexico at the gorgeous Sian Ka'an in a penthouse suite. This fondness for Bahia has certainly been able to grow due to the fact that ACV has such a fantastic relationship with Bahia and always offer the best Bahia has to offer their clients. Looking forward to more from ACV! #ACVDreamMakers

After working in this business for 31 years, I have too many dream making experiences to list and if I didn't I wouldn't be doing this job everyday!

ACV helped me send three generations of women to fabulous Las Vegas (ages 38-76!). It was a non-stop week of bucket list adventures with them. Helicopters, roller coasters, incredible shows, lots and lots of laughs, new and old friends and celebrations were just some of what the week had to offer. Flights were delayed but Air Canada worked with us and got every single passenger from three different gateways there with minimal time lost. The ACV rep that I worked with for close to a year was very helpful and appeared to care as much about my group as I did. She even checked in with me after departure and wanted to thank me for my business (Thanks YOU Melissa!).
This will be a trip that this group will be talking about for many years to come. They have already began planning to do it again in two years in a new destination! That is the power of travel :)

One of my best dream making experience was helping four clients go on a 10 day vacation to Jamaica last year when Air Canada had a bogo sale. Loved hearing about all the experiences they did like jumping off waterfalls at the Blue Hole, deep sea fishing, swimming with dolphins and touring Rose Hall plantation. They still call me and tell me how it was the most wonderful vacation they have ever been on, and cant wait to go back! Thank you Air Canada!

I had an amazing opportunity to use Air Canada Vacations to book my clients from Alberta Canada, to Sydney Australia. I used many departments within the Air Canada Vacations family to make this Dream Vacation happen for my clients. Journeys department, where they assisted in the air and 5 nights pre stay within walking distance of the Opera house in Sydney, then the Air Canada Vacations Cruise department for their Sydney to Honolulu cruise with Royal Caribbean, back to Air Canada Vacations for their post stay for 4 nights in Honolulu, all before coming home. Every detail from airport transfers, hotels, cruise transfers, and special added amenities for being ACV guests, made this vacation a once in a lifetime opportunity, and me an Ultimate Dream Maker. I knew I did everything right, when I started getting pictures via email of them on their cruise, and in other locations. Awesome!!

was booking a client who is confined to a wheelchair on an Alaska Cruise through ACV. It was so rewarding to hear when he got back how much he enjoyed himself and seeing pictures of him boarding a helicopter for a flightseeing tour with a smile just beaming - that's the kind of satisfaction money can't buy!!

Was bookings my clients on a recent getaway to Spain. Read the review for yourself:
"Just back from Madrid and had a fantastic time! The Hotel Urban exceeded expectations and is a true five star I'd recommend as they have exceptional service which surpassed W Hotel, Intercontinental and Park Hyatt. Every late afternoon upon our arrival they sent up a bottle of Cava with Iberian ham, a fruit basket, chocolate truffles, Spanish vermouth paired with some food"
and on and on!
They were treated like Royalty! They gushed about their experience including their flight with Air Canada...
Thanks ACV for making me look good with my clients :-)
