Homebound During Hurricane Season? - July 2008 Newsletter

Hurricane season is upon us, and most people are afraid to travel during this time. What you may not realize is that hurricane season lasts from June to November. But if no one travelled during those times, we'd only have six month's worth of travel time in which to choose from during the year. That's no fun!

Good news is: there is no need to stay home! Several Caribbean islands lie outside the hurricane belt and are a lower risk for extreme weather conditions. Barbados (our feature destination), Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, and Tobago, just to name a few, are the most southerly of the Caribbean islands and rarely experience hurricanes, so are less likely to be impacted. If you do travel to an island not on our virtually-hurricane-free list, remember that resorts such as Superclubs properties offer a hurricane guarantee. So you see...there's no need to be homebound during hurricane season.

Barbados is our feature destination for July. With sweet tropical air and a British flair, Barbados entices with spectacular pink-white sand beaches and crystal azure seas. You'll love this enchanting island's rich culture, friendly people, great accommodations, and variety of cuisine. In fact, Barbados has the distinction of being the only Caribbean island with it's own Zagat-rated guide. This small island was also a stop for the Concorde, the supersonic plane which regularly flew the London-Barbados route since 1966. Barbados is where Tiger Woods tied the knot at the fabulous Sandy Lane, and is home to Grammy-winner Rihanna. There is definitely more to Barbados than beach and sand.

Never before has so much fun and savings been packed into such a small island: free nights, air credits, free breakfast, and more! Book your next vacation to Barbados by August 1, 2008 to take advantage of the best the island has to offer!
