TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - February 17, 2016) - Launched just as many families are looking forward to time away together over March Break, Sunwing Vacations is pleased to announce the introduction of their new family-friendly travel program, Kidcations. Sunwing believes a family vacation only becomes a 'kidcation' if it meets the approval of its most demanding customers -- the kids. So last year the tour operator conducted a nationwide contest where travel savvy kids and teens competed for the chance to tour some of Sunwing's most popular family-oriented resorts and inspire future kidcationers with the their firsthand reviews. Their travel photo and video diaries can be found on Sunwing's website and also within the annual Kidcations magazine that is available at leading travel agents across the country and can also be downloaded at What's more, the 2016 search for Sunwing Kidcation Testers is now on! Parents looking to enter their child should visit the Kidcations page at

Naturally kidcations are also about ensuring hard working parents get a break too, and that's where Sunwing's Kidcations Family Travel panel weighs in. Made up of six of Canada's leading family travel experts -- including Lena Almeida, Stephanie Holmes, Candace Derickx, Sheri McDonald, Andrea Traynor and Jamie Damak -- the panel will be giving parents the inside scoop on how to plan the perfect vacation that will make everyone in the family happy.

As well as assisting parents with tips on every aspect of family travel -- from how to pack to flying with toddlers -- they'll also be sharing their take on the best resorts. After they've sought out the best kid-friendly menus, teen activities and family pools, they'll also be letting parents know where they can find indulgent spas, gourmet dining, pool cabanas and relaxing beach hammocks to enjoy some more adult-oriented relaxation too. The panel will be passing on their advice with regular Twitter parties and parents will also be able to ask them direct questions through the site to assist with their vacation planning. The first Twitter party is set to launch on February 17, 2016 at 9:00p.m. EST.
