Saint Lucia continues to prove why she is a destination that inspires travelers to visit and explore her beauty and splendor.
Visitors to Saint Lucia can enjoy the perfect summer getaway with 25 properties on the island that are offering guests a holiday guarantee if their vacation were to be interrupted by adverse weather.
Though Saint Lucia is seldom affected by hurricanes, hotel operators associated with the Saint Lucia Hotel and Tourism Association (SLHTA) created the holiday guarantee, so visitors could book their vacations with confidence at any time of the year. This unique Holiday Guarantee programme covers cancellations made prior to arrival and if the vacation is cut short because of a hurricane.
The guarantee becomes effective upon the issuance of a hurricane warning by the Saint Lucia Meteorological Service and offers a waiver of cancellation penalties and an opportunity to rebook the vacation.
Travel Agencies and Tour Operators who can now offer their clients an additional layer of security for their vacations, in the event of a hurricane, have welcomed the Holiday Guarantee Programme, which got underway in 2018.
Chief Executive Officer at the Saint Lucia Tourism Authority- Beverly Nicholson-Doty said; “As a sought after Caribbean destination, it is utterly necessary that our Holiday Guarantee remains in full effect to assure our visitors that Saint Lucia takes pride in its tourism product.”
