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:


  1. Select a resort that offers suites with kitchens to save on money dining out.  Kitchen facilities are particularly convenient for families to prepare breakfast and picnic lunches, and then to splurge a bit at dinner.
  2. Take care when making reservations to learn about potential surcharges.  Many resorts now charge a “daily resort fee”, for Wi-Fi, parking, local government fees and even the use of some recreational facilities.  What may initially seem like a low rate may end up costing you considerably more than you expected.
  3. Ask what is available for free.  Is the use of recreational facilities included? Are any free perks such as shuttle services, in room coffee and tea, daily newspapers or special events offered to add additional value?
  4. Next to the cost of accommodations, food and drink expenditures are usually the second most expensive aspect of a vacation.  If you want to enjoy unique culinary expenses, but be careful with your dining budget at the same time, look for resorts that offer a package, or even savings on items such as free drinks or free bottled water.
  5. Choose a destination that is easy and affordable to reach. Travel time, and destinations not easily accessible by direct flights, incurs extra costs as a result of increased expenditures at the airport, for airport parking, and less time spent doing what is most important – relaxing!


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, and concierge services.


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
