Bring Out "The Best of Barbados"

“The Best of Barbados,” the Caribbean region’s most successful national program in recent years, is returning again this autumn (for American consumers), providing travellers with both significant and tangible added value. The program offers United States travellers visiting the island great savings on flights, accommodations, dining, and car rental.The most significant features of this seven nights or longer program are a US$250 per person airfare credit toward a paid fare of $250 or higher and complimentary breakfast every day for up to two guests per room.

These, combined with a complimentary night’s stay when seven nights or longer are booked, translate into a substantial savings of over $900 per couple. Additionally, “The Best of Barbados” savings are being offered on popular island activities including discounts on submarine rides, golf excursions, dining and island tours.

Visitors will also receive a “Best of Barbados” shopping card offering 15% discounts in participating shops when making purchases of $25 or more.

“The Best of Barbados” program has proven to be the most successful travel promotion in the Caribbean since its launch in July, 2002,” states Bill Silvermintz, Vice President of Marketing for the Americas at the Barbados Tourism Authority.

“It has become so because it addresses the real, not simply perceived, needs of the long stay visitor - the ‘triple A’s’ as I call them; Airfare (the need to fly to the Caribbean), Accommodations (the need for a home away from home) and Appetite (the need to eat). We are pleased to bring back this program for 2005, and are confident it will both continue the strong U.S. growth Barbados has shown over the past three years as well as help us to maintain the high visibility we have achieved for Barbados here in the U.S.”


“The Best of Barbados” runs during the travel periods of August 20 - December 20, 2005.

“The Best of Barbados” is based on a maximum of 2 persons per room and is subject to change without notice.

With 26 hotels participating across the island, “The Best of Barbados” program offers a wide range of accommodations to suit any traveller’s budget and special interests
