CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., Nov. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Three Caribbean nations have joined forces to offer an unprecedented Black Friday through Cyber Monday deal that is sure to attract a large audience of US travelers. Through cooperation between the public and private sectors, the tourism boards and hotel associations of Barbados, St. Lucia and Antigua are offering 20% off virtually any hotel or resort when booked through their official websites. This is the first time that Caribbean nations are working together in a unified promotion to attract visitors.
“When the words ‘fiscal cliff’ are uttered on television every 30 seconds it tends to affect consumers’ propensity to plan their vacations,” said Ashwin Kamlani, President of Regatta Travel Solutions. “To combat this, these three Caribbean countries are working together in a way never seen before to attract US travelers. I applaud these Destination Marketing Organizations for working with the suppliers in their destinations to put their entire countries on sale. The US has never seen an offer like this out of the Caribbean in history.”
This blowout sale will launch on the morning of Black Friday and consumers will have until midnight Monday night to get 20% off any participating hotel or resort in all 3 countries when booked on the official DMO or Hotel Association website. The discount is available for any participating hotel on stays through December 15th, 2013, without any blackout dates. Consumers can book on the following sites:
Barbados: www.bookbarbadosnow.com or www.visitbarbados.org
St. Lucia: www.bookstlucianow.com or www.stlucianow.com
