Classic Vacations Introduces CaribbeanStrong Campaign

NEWS RELEASE

WHOLESALER TO DONATE PORTION OF QUALIFYING BOOKING PROCEEDS

October 16, 2017

San Jose, CA – Earlier this month, Classic Vacations announced its CaribbeanStrong campaign, encouraging travel partners to support communities in areas affected by the recent hurricanes, Maria and Irma. For every Caribbean booking of 5 nights or more with Classic’s Change and Cancellation Waiver, made before November 10, 2017 and for travel January 1st through December 15th, 2018, Classic will donate $50 USD to the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association’s Caribbean Tourism Recovery Fund.

“The objective of this campaign is twofold,” remarked Robert Sasaki, Product Development Manager at Classic Vacations. “We want to help recovery efforts in the Caribbean Islands affected by the recent storms, but we also want to raise awareness of the surrounding islands and the opportunity to visit these beautiful destinations. As Karolin Troubetzkoy, President of the Caribbean Hotel & Tourism Association, pointed out: Over 70% of the Caribbean was unaffected by the recent storms, and destinations such as Turks and Caicos and the Dominican Republic were minimally affected and continue to welcome guests every day.

“Additionally, and more importantly, we want to continue to help the affected islands recover and rebuild, by donating $50 for every qualifying booking traveling to the Caribbean. Since many of the significantly affected islands are unable to rebuild through tourism, which is the backbone of their economy, we want to ease their burden by donating to CHTA’s Caribbean Tourism Recovery Fund.”

More information (as well as sales flyers and full terms and conditions) can be found on Classic Assist and at www.classicvacations.com. Comprehensive information on the Caribbean Tourism Recovery Fund can be found on their website: http://www.tourismcares.org/caribbean/.
