Ford make it easier to get to USVI

Commissioner of Tourism Pamela C. Richards has announced a new partnership between the United States
Virgin Islands and Ford Motor Company.  During the month of April,
participating Ford dealerships are offering a free holiday for two to the
USVI with the purchase of a Ford Escape. 
“The United States Virgin Islands is thrilled to partner with the Ford Motor
Company,” said Commissioner of Tourism Pamela C. Richards.  “We look forward to introducing the beauty and splendor of the United States Virgin Islands to Ford’s many customers, and we are happy that we are able to provide them with such a wonderful holiday opportunity.”

The offer, valid for travel through April 7, 2005, includes a
five-day/four-night holiday on either
St. Croix or St. Thomas.  Travelers can choose from one of four
participating hotels - Carambola Beach Resort, St. Croix; Divi Carina Bay
Beach Resort, St. Croix; Marriott Frenchman’s Reef Resort, St. Thomas; and Wyndham Sugar Bay Resort & Spa, St. Thomas.

In addition to hotel
accommodations, the package also features round-trip airfare for two on US Airways and airport transfers to and from the hotel.

More than 140 Ford dealers in select target markets, including Washington,
DC, Baltimore, MD, Norfolk, VA, Richmond, VA and Roanoke, VA, are
participating in this cooperative marketing promotion.

In order to qualify
for the U.S. Virgin Islands holiday, customers must purchase their Ford
