Transat Distribution Canada has chosen DataCandy for its new gift card program, launching this month. 

TDC says the lucrative travel gift card market is a great opportunity to acquire two customers with one transaction -- the customer who buys it and the person who receives it. 

The retail distributor is offering a unique gift card that can be issued and redeemed across its nationwide branded network including Marlin Travel, Club Voyages, Transat Travel, Voyages Transat, and TravelPlus. 

Consumers can redeem their travel gift card with one of TDC's hundreds of experienced Travel Professionals on all travel with no restrictions, and it never expires. 

“The new TDC DataCandy platform allows us to offer plastic or electronic gift cards, along with the added accessibility to store these in your Apple Wallet or Google Pay account," said Susan Bowman, Vice President Marketing and Industry Relations, TDC.  

"TDC gift cards have no maintenance or inactivity fees. Our program originated in 2015 and to date millions of TDC gift cards have been sold. We are very excited to launch this newest version of our TDC gift card!"
