Travel is a personal. It’s different for everyone. It has meaning and purpose and so the perfect time to travel is really when travel is calling you. As Transat’s motto says, “Vacation Is Calling.”

We live and breathe travel. We work our butts off year after year just to afford the indulgence of transporting ourselves out of the mundane routine of daily living into someplace that we can explore and learn from, rejuvenate and reenergize.  Bottom line, whether we’ve been someplace 100 times or we’re going for the first time, every time changes our lives. It’s a game-changer. Like firefighters, or any other professional in their field, travel agents also take their work very seriously and we are fully aware that we’re responsible for facilitating an event that can be transformational.  

Is there a best time to travel than another? Sure. You can book a trip any time of the year.

Of course, your destination of choice and the reason for your travel is what ultimately determines the best time. Working with a travel advisor helps to break down the planning from start to finish to cover all the bases; flights, accommodations, transfers, excursions, restaurants, cultural events, seasons, etc.
