Get ready to plan your dream vacation.
The AAA Travel Virtual Marketplace is taking place Jan. 30-31, and it will be packed with special deals and booking incentives, travel presentations and giveaways, a perfect opportunity for you to book now, travel later and save – all from the comfort of your home.
“The travel industry continues to evolve, and so do we,” said Chelsea San Martino, director of travel marketing at AAA Northeast. “We know there is going to be pent-up demand to travel once it’s safe to do so, so we wanted to create a digital environment where our members and travelers can still dream, learn and engage with travel advisors.”
You can also enter for a chance to win the grand prize – a free trip valued at $8,000.
There is plenty to be inspired by at the show – with 30 vendors and 50 different presentations representing everything from river and ocean cruising to North American discoveries, and international explorations to tropical getaways. Representatives from various attractions and tours – including AAA Member Choice Vacations, Club Adventures, Norwegian Cruise Line, Pleasant Holidays, Disney World Resort and more – will also be on hand to guide participants toward their dream destinations and to answer any questions.
Attendees can also learn about group “bubble” tours from Club Adventures by AAA Exclusive Vacations, where just six people traveling together can take a private tour with over 1,000 itineraries to choose from all over the globe.
Samantha Brown, host of “Samantha Brown’s Places to Love” on PBS, will be joining the festivities as well.
Travel advisors will also be available before, during and after the show to help guide you toward your dream getaway. For extra peace of mind, AAA Northeast travel advisors are all SmartDepart certified and trained in safe travel best practices. Head to AAA.com/Marketplace to chat with or set up an appointment with an advisor.
Throughout the show, attendees will have the chance to take advantage of show-only travel deals, win prizes and receive up to $400 in booking incentives and future travel credits worth $800 when they book a qualifying vacation at the show.
The show runs Saturday, Jan. 30, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., and Sunday, Jan. 31, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
