Authority opts for RezRez

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados -- The Barbados Tourism Authority appointed RezRez, a Vancouver-based online central reservations company, to operate its official GDS.

Although the service is primarily for the public and includes vacation-planning assistance, agents earn 5% commission on air-inclusive packages and hotels shown on the site when they book through RezRez.

Among air-inclusive deals out of New York (Kennedy) is the seven-night Beyond the Beach, featuring the oceanfront Butterfly Beach Hotel. The stay, through June 30 or from Sept. 8 through Dec. 14, costs $615 per person, double.

The package includes roundtrip air on BWIA and seven nights' accommodations in a studio unit with a kitchen and an ocean view.
