Bermuda's Central Reservation Service (BCRS) now works with all of
the 79 licensed properties on the island and accepts reservations
by toll-free telephone, fax and e-mail.
The Web site, www.bermudareservations.com, displays all
properties with photos and relevant information, according to Steve
Martin, who runs the service. "The site is still in evolution, and
we will be adding information in the next couple of months."
Agents may call the toll-free number at (800) 637-4116; fax
(441) 236-1662; or e-mail [email protected] Martin asked that
agents fax the reservation service if they have trouble with the
800 number; he promises a response in 24 hours.
BCRS now offers a variety of land-based packages, some of them
described on the Web site. "The site is not interactive by
intention," said Martin, "because we want to have personalized
service for each reservation."
Agents who book golf packages with BCRS can book tee times as
well and get commission on greens fees. The situation is similar
for other packages such as scuba and, for those who prefer to keep
their hair dry and their feet on the ground, helmet diving.
