Yes, you heard it right! The US Virgin Islands are paying travelers $300 to head down there. Not a bad incentive to head to the beaches of St. Thomas, St. Croix, or St. John. The islands’ government is putting in this promotion to celebrate their Transfer Day on March 31, which marks the centenary year when Denmark transferred the ownership of the islands to the US. To celebrate, the USVI government is giving away $300 to any visitor who spends three consecutive nights on any of the islands.
As with most things, the devil is in the details, and alas the USVI government is not just dishing out $300 in cash. Instead, they will give every visitor vouchers amounting to that value, which can be used for “Historical/Cultural Tours and Activities”.
All you need to do once you have the vouchers in hand is redeem them at one of the participating hotels and enjoy some of the islands’ history of the USVI government. USVI Tourism has provided a full list and details of the promotion.
Like all deals there are some terms and conditions, although in this case, they are quite simple:
- You must spend three consecutive nights on the Islands
- Bookings must be made before October 1, 2017
- The promotion is valid for all travel during the 2017 calendar year
- Vouchers can only be redeemed at participating hotels
If you are planning your Spring/Summer Vacations, then why not consider the US Virgin Islands. With flexibility, flights from the East Coast can be found for as little as $300, which means the vouchers should reimburse you for the cost of the flights. Furthermore, since you don’t need a passport to visit, it is an easy getaway to reach. In addition to the promotion, the participating hotels are some of the best and most popular on the islands, which should make your visit that much more fun and pleasurable.
