Alberta Families ‘Unplug & Explore’ for Huge Summer Savings in the Rockies

Banff, Alberta [July 21, 2011] How does technology impact the time you spend with your family? This is a question that Brewster Travel Canada set out to answer in preparation for launching one of the largest regional marketing campaigns in the company’s 119 year history. The answer’s not surprising. Everything from blackberries to video games and iPods to Facebook has literally taken over family time in today’s world. This summer, in partnership with Travel Alberta, Banff Lake Louise Tourism and Tourism Jasper, Brewster Travel Canada is challenging Alberta families to disconnect their devices and reconnect with each other in Alberta’s national parks for access to free tickets and huge savings. 

The Unplug & Explore promotion is simple: Alberta residents complete a family pledge to ‘Unplug and Explore’ and in return, instantly receive FREE child tickets to the Columbia Icefield Glacier Adventure, Banff Gondola and Banff Lake Cruise. In addition to the free tickets, also features weekly prizes and amazing deals on Family Stay and Play packages in Banff and Jasper, for as little as $199 for a family of four.


“Albertans are so fortunate to have some of the world’s greatest attractions right in our own backyard,” commented Michael Hannan, President of Brewster Travel Canada, “Unplug and Explore was designed to encourage Alberta families to experience the Rockies, and most importantly, reconnect together with what matters most.” 

The promotion is timely with an increasing number of Albertans looking to stay closer to home this summer. Over 35,000 Albertans have already visited, and with six weeks to go, Brewster Travel Canada officials expect thousands more to take advantage of this limited time offer. This amazing family travel deal is only available to Alberta residents until September 5th.
