TD rocks its new suite of Travel Visa cards with a beach party at Toronto's Dundas Square headlined by Hedley and featuring Juno winner Jully Black
- Winner of "The $10,000 Trip of a Lifetime" Contest announced TORONTO, April 10 /CNW/ - Today TD celebrated the launch of its exciting new suite of Travel Visa cards, including the TD First Class Travel Visa Infinite Card, in style and Torontonians finally got to find out what was inside the mysterious, big green box sitting on Dundas Square all week. The surprise? A beach party in Toronto's Dundas Square, where Canadian headliners Hedley as well as Juno winner Jully Black entertained a boisterous crowd as beach balls flew through the air. "After a long, hard winter, a beach party seemed like a great way to shake off the winter blahs and have some fun. And since we're celebrating an exciting new suite of travel cards we thought we'd showcase everyone's favourite destination - the beach!" said Stacie Pearson, Associate Vice President, TD Visa. Revelers at Dundas Square were on-hand to see the much touted, big green box finally opened to reveal a beach party complete with sand, palm trees, beach balls and partiers in tropical wear - a welcome oasis for a city just emerging from a punishing winter. The beach party was also a great place to announce the winner of "The TD First Class Travel Visa Infinite Card $10,000 Trip of a Lifetime" contest. "We wanted to do something special to mark the launch of these very special travel cards that let you book any way." added Pearson, who hosted the event. "And what's more special than a party with fantastic live music and the chance to send someone on a dream vacation?" TD's exciting new line up of travel cards includes The TD Platinum Travel Visa, the TD Classic Travel Visa Card and the TD First Class Travel Visa Infinite Card -- the first Visa Infinite card of its kind to offer cardholders "Book Any Way" flexibility, valuable travel insurance and prestigious travel services. With the TD First Class Travel Visa Infinite, cardholders can book any way they want - through their favourite travel agent or online web-site, tour package provider, a last-minute deal or promotion, directly with the hotel or airline. And, while many competitor cards require their cardholders to reach point travel tiers to travel to specified destinations, with the TD First Class Travel Card redeeming points is simple and easy to understand. For every $1.00 in purchases made using the card, cardholders earn 3 TD Points that can be redeemed towards any type of travel. Specifically for Canadians who love to travel, the TD First Class Travel card offers, in addition to the book anyway feature, such premium features as: - Travel Medical Insurance - Trip Cancellation & Trip Interruption Insurance - Complimentary Concierge Assistance - trip planning help is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and includes assistance in the event of an emergency while travelling - VIP treatment at the world's finest hotels and resorts through exclusive hotel privileges - Access to restaurant ratings and reviews of the world's most outstanding restaurants - and much more!
