Apple Vacations is Now Exclusively on VAX

The day has finally come and as of today, Apple Vacations is available exclusively on VAX for bookings moving forward. That means that if you were previously using Apple 4.0 to book vacation packages for your clients, you will now be using VAX VacationAccess, the award-winning leisure travel marketplace.

Apple Vacations’ competitive rates and fares, convenient calendars for hotel availability and exclusive flights contribute to the unbeatable experiences your clients will have. Apple Vacations’ focus on creating a global community in emerging destinations like Panama and Costa Rica, helps VAX help you connect your clients to more of the world.

If you don’t know Apple Vacations or need to get reacquainted with them, here are four things to know about this powerhouse brand on VAX.
