Weather Gods Have itravel2000 Praying for Over 5” Snow on New Year’s Day

TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Travelzest plc (LSE:TVZ.L):

“We’ve been faced with an amazing paradoxical situation every year since the launch of the “Let it Snow”

itravel2000, a Travelzest company, is keeping a close watch on weather forecasts anticipating over 5” of snow on New Year’s Day. Thousands of Canadians that have booked with the Company will no doubt be doing the same as 5” of snowfall on January 1st could win them free trips.

Those that booked their trips between August 15, 2011 and October 3, 2011 with the Company availing its “Let it Snow” promotion, one of Canada’s largest travel promotions, will get their trips for free less taxes.

On December 22,, 2011, the Weather Network was forecasting snow for the “Let it Snow” qualifying weather stations of Calgary and Montreal on January 1st, whereas rain showers were predicted for those of Toronto and Halifax on its “14-Day Trend” widget.

The forecasts came as great news for itravel2000 and those participating in “Let it Snow”, as was the case for the hundreds of Montreal and Halifax participants lucky enough to get their trips for free when it snowed over 5” at Montreal/Pierre Elliot Trudeau Airport in 2007 and Halifax International Airport in 2008. The weather scene predicted for all the snow points on New Year’s Day 2012 suggests that there is a good chance that all this year’s participants will wake up to snowfall.

Jonathan Carroll, president of itravel2000, and CEO of Travelzest, said:

“We’ve been faced with an amazing paradoxical situation every year since the launch of the “Let it Snow” programme – while getting our snow shovels ready to clean all that heavy snow on New Year’s Day doesn’t seem like a particularly exciting prospect, wishing for over 5” of snow in the hope of awarding free trips certainly does. We are keeping our eyes on the skies and praying all the time that the Weather Gods give all the participants the chance to win free trips with itravel2000 this year.”
