Any time a country or region imposes any sort of visa stipulation - even if it’s a waiver - the travel industry sighs a collective groan, knowing the obstacles and headaches to come.
MIAMI — Bahia Principe Hotels & Resorts is starting the new year off right with the return of one of its most popular consumer incentives, aimed at ramping up bookings just as the winter weather here at home settles in for the long haul.
Today marks the start of Bahia Principe’s Happiness Sale, taking place now through Jan. 22 and offering savings on travel throughout 2019, including peak season and holidays.
Clients can pick from 20 of Bahia Principe’s all-inclusive properties located in the D.R., Jamaica and Mexico.
Vacationers can also reserve a stay at Luxury Bahia Principe Ambar, which reopened late last year after an extensive renovation, or at Grand Bahia Principe Aquamarine, an adults-only, Punta Cana property which has been rebranded.
“As 2019 begins to unfold, potential travellers are looking ahead and planning for their next special getaway,” says Helen Montijano, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for the U.S. and Canada. “Our signature Happiness Sale allows for travellers to book in advance, taking advantage of notable discounts for travel throughout 2019 including deep summer deals. Our resorts offer top service, facilities and amenities that create a wonderful experience in the Caribbean for everyone, including snowbirds or those who simply want a quick weekend escape.”
The booking deadline is Jan. 22 and the travel deadline is Oct. 31, including peak season. Bahia Principe says the extended travel window gives vacationers the ability to book far in advance at an attainable price point.
Punta Cana’s Luxury Bahia Principe Ambar, which reopened in November 2018 after US$30 million in renovations, has been upgraded to feature all-new swim up suites and modern interiors. Travellers can also reserve a stay at the rebranded Grand Bahia Principe Aquamarine, an adults-only, entertainment-focused property. For families looking for a whimsical setting and a range of activities for guests of all ages, there’s Fantasia Bahia Principe Punta Cana.
Bahia Principe reminds agents that they can take advantage of double points for all bookings through the brand’s Bahia Principe Rewards loyalty program.
Agents who are new to Bahia Principe Rewards receive 1,000 welcome points when they sign up, which are also doubled during the Happiness Sale booking window.
