May 18, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel NewsTORONTO, ON. The information highway has a new stop with a website dedicated exclusively for gay friendly travel options. At gaycanadagetaways.com customers can find safe and welcoming travel destinations with the click of a mouse.
“At gaycanadagetaways.com, gay and lesbian travellers will find unique and authentic packages in some of Canada's most romantic, hip and culturally diverse cities as well as its invigorating outdoors, ” says Carolyn Glen, National Director of Marketing of Atlific Hotels and Resorts. “Our hotels have always been gay friendly, we’re simply using the website portal to make them easier to find and book.”
The site is designed to appeal to both local and international markets offering information on key destinations, community events, unique packages and the opportunity to book either on-line or by telephone.
Whether it’s the cobblestone streets of Montreal, quiant romance and architecture of Victoria or Guelph, rugged outdoor beauty of Lake Louise or Pemberton Valley, world class ski slopes of Whistler, shops and clubs of Vancouver, museums and art galleries of Ottawa, or the majestic natural beauty of the Muskoka region, Atlific properties offer a range of excursions which highlight the rich cultural and scenic diversity of Canada's rural and urban landscapes.
“At gaycanadagetaways.com we are addressing the needs of the gay community,” Glen says. “Our customers will be able to know instantly they’re in good hands whether it’s for a weekend getaway or for a special once-in-a-lifetime place to say ‘I do’ – Canada’s the place.”
Canada is a recognized international leader in Gay and Lesbian civil rights making it an ideal travel destination supported by the hotels and resorts managed by Atlific. Guests visiting gaycanadagetaways.com can choose from world famous hotel brands such as Marriott, Ramada and Holiday Inn or the unique charms of independent resorts and boutique hotels.
Glen said Atlific is responding to a need in the marketplace and the initial response from the gay community has been excellent.
“National organizations such as the Canadian Gay Chamber of Commerce and the Canadian Tourism Commission have advised us that it is important to this segment of the population to be welcomed and acknowledged directly,” says Glen. “Our hotels are all about service, dependability and knowledge of how to meet our clients’ needs, not to mention the locations are exceptional. This is a logical progression for us.”
