Air Canada Vacations has announced “a complete makeover” to its ACV&Me Loyalty Program that it says will allow members to earn points faster, take advantage of a wider variety of redemption options, and instantly redeem in just a few clicks.
“After 18 months of planning, we are more than a little excited to announce the enhancements to our agent loyalty program,” said Dana Gain, Senior Director of Sales, Groups & Partnerships at Air Canada Vacations.
“We asked the agency community for their feedback and believe we have come up with improvements that speak directly to the needs of the travel agency community,”
Travel agents can now earn more points on more products when booking with Air Canada Vacations. Here are the new levels:

Air Canada Vacations says the enhanced program allows agents to earn more points faster, and instantly redeem for a wider variety of options, including:
$50, $100 instant shopping and dining gift cards from 28 Canadian retailers
Travel the world. Redeem for Travel Vouchers – Receive a $75 Travel voucher instead of $50 when redeeming the same 5,000 points

“The enhanced program is designed to recognize travel agents’ efforts with more earning opportunities and allow them to redeem instantly – two hot buttons we kept hearing about,” Gain said.
The new program is valid for new bookings made as of 24JAN, 2020.
