Agents who book five or more clients to Barbados receive island vacation

TORONTO — The Barbados Island Inclusive (BII) is back for a limited time, valid for bookings from Aug. 15 to Sept. 30, 2014, on travel up to Dec. 19, 2014.

The Barbados Island Inclusive will provide Canadian clients with “free spending money” based on their length of stay, which they may use at participating restaurants and attractions while on-island. If visitors stay a minimum of five nights, they will receive US$150 per person; and on stays of seven nights or longer, they will receive $200 per person.

Travel agents can get into the island inclusive spirit too, with vacation perks extending to them. When an agent books five (or more) travellers on the ‘Barbados Island Inclusive’ package by Sept. 30 (for travel up to Dec. 19, 2014), he or she will earn an island vacation, and the agent will also receive a spending voucher for $150.

“The Barbados Island Inclusive is a value-added promotion, which is based on a maximum of two persons per room,” explained Cheryl Carter, Senior Business Development Manager of the Barbados Tourism Authority in Canada. “Upon hotel check-in, guests will receive vouchers valued at the U.S. dollar equivalent – either $150 or $200 – which may be used at more than 30 attractions and restaurants across the island.

“The objective of the BII is essentially to ensure that visitors to Barbados have a total destination experience, or as we say an ‘island inclusive’ vacation and the free spending money allows them to do so through dining and adventure.”
