Boomers, Zoomers and Travel

Thursday, February 25th, 2016

13-16-197-croppedI was reading a survey carried out by AARP (the American Association of Retired Persons) about Boomer travel. It got me thinking about how Boomers, and their exciting subset Zoomers, travel differently to younger people. Millennials (those born from early 80’s to early 2000’s), for instance, are part of the sharing economy and they are more likely to use AirBnB or other sharing accommodation sites than a hotel. More of them travel internationally, but they are very budget conscious and tend to book online. Many travel for the purpose of finding love (if you’re a Boomer, think the Love Boat) and while Boomers travel to impress the younger cohort pack light, very light – a few tee-shirts, shorts and flip-flops and they’re good to go.

The 6 Things I Must Take On A BC Road Trip

Thursday, February 18th, 2016

pillowsI was packing the car the other day, getting ready for a trip to Whistler to visit family and cursing the amount of stuff we always seem to take with us. No matter where we’re going, or for how long, it always seems the car is full. It got me thinking if I was going on a road trip what would be the six things I couldn’t live without? I don’t mean the standard stuff you simply have to pack like your wallet, medicines, cell phone – all the obvious stuff such as a laptop if you’re going on business, but those things that make travelling a little more civilized and comfortable.

Valentines Day, Hotel Love, And Keeping It Down

Thursday, February 11th, 2016

Nooner special-croppedIt’s that time of year again when love is in the air. Hotel Zed (Accent Inns’ rebel sister hotel) is inviting couples back for a ‘Nooner’ and extended lunch break. This cheeky offer gives fun-loving guests a room between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. for $50. Accent Inns doesn’t offer a similar deal, but overnight stays at great prices are very popular on Valentine’s Day and the weekend closest to the day itself. (more…)

Family Day Fun – 5 Ways To Make Your Day Special

Thursday, February 4th, 2016

family day 2016It’s here again, the fourth Family Day happens on February 8th – it’s the only statutory day we get off between New Year’s Day and Good Friday, so let’s make the best of it.

Did you know that it’s only a provincial statutory holiday? Federal government workers have to work – that sucks! And, not every province celebrates it – only B.C. Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Ontario. So, we’re pretty lucky eh? (more…)

Monday, February 1st, 2016

John with Dr Jill & Dr Bob

It was a real pleasure and honor to attend the Kamloops BC, Mayors Gala for the Arts on Saturday January 30, 2016. Accent Inns was blessed with a nomination by the Kamloops Festival of the Performing Arts and the Kamloops Symphony. The Gala itself was a fun and playful event with a Shakespearian forest theme with many of the attendees wearing beautiful masks. The event was MC’d by Actor Alan Corbishley and Mayor Peter Milobar. Alan stayed in character all night as “Bishleycor” and added lots of humor to the event. (more…)

Top Ten Reasons to Book Direct

Thursday, January 28th, 2016

booking directI’m constantly frustrated when trying to book a hotel that I think I’m going to their website, when in fact I’ve accidentally chosen an online booking company. I know everyone has to make a living but personally I’ve found it frustrating that these sites can appear ahead of the actual company I’m looking for. Personally I have never, ever, booked through one of them – honest! (more…)

8 Exciting Winter Activities Across B.C.

Tuesday, January 26th, 2016

winter activitiesFull disclosure, I’m not a fan of the cold, the rain, and especially snow. If I didn’t love Canada, and especially B.C. so much, I’d move to somewhere the sun is always shining. Now, that’s not to say I don’t like après winter activities – you know watching people have fun from the bar with a dry martini in hand! (more…)
