Summer vacation time is here and with it comes inflated prices for vacation accommodations, airfare, and attractions.
Historically, a Caribbean vacation in the summer was not an obvious choice for many travelers, but thanks to improved airlift in recent years, and often the best prices of the year, an increasing number of vacationers are taking advantage of summer savings in the sunny south. Travelers who are researching Caribbean vacation deals should look beyond sticker prices to find other ways they can stretch their vacation dollars even further.
Here are five tips to help save money on a Caribbean vacation this summer:
The Turks and Caicos Collection of resorts – Alexandra Resort, Beach House Turks and Caicos, and Blue Haven Resort and Marina – offer vacation packages with visitor value in mind. The three waterfront resorts each offer a unique setting and experience, but they all provide the following free services and facilities: Wi-Fi, parking, dining shuttle between properties, daily breakfast credit (starting on Oct. 1 at Alexandra Resort), in-room coffee and tea service, use of recreational facilities and pedal bikes, concierge services and an airport greeter service.
Each resort is also affiliated with Stash, the awards program for independent hotels. Guest who enroll with Stash earn points every time they stay at the resorts. Points can then be saved and redeemed toward future travel.
All Turks and Caicos Collection properties feature accommodations that have either kitchenettes or full kitchens (depending on the room category), a stunning waterfront address, swimming pool, on-site spa, gym and full service restaurant.
Special Caribbean vacation deals are now available at each resort. To learn more about the travel specials at Alexandra Resort visit www.alexandraresort.com.
