Bermuda offers incentive: $100 in gift checks

HAMILTON, Bermuda -- To help agents rebound this winter, the Bermuda Department of Tourism initiated a "Compliments of Bermuda" promotion, through which each adult visitor receives $100 worth of island gift checks upon check-in.

The program is available exclusively for bookings made through travel agents by Dec. 31 for travel from Nov. 15 through March 31.

The Bermuda gift checks can be used the same as cash at participating restaurants, shops and attractions throughout the island. In addition, each adult visitor will receive a 30-page coupon passbook with savings of up to 50% on attractions, retail shops, restaurants, charter boat rentals, transportation and greens fees at golf courses.

All of the island's major hotels are participating, including Fairmont's Southampton and Hamilton Princess properties, Harmony Club, Rosedon, White Sands Hotel and Cottages, Elbow Beach, Stonington Beach Hotel, Sonesta Beach Resort and Grotto Bay Beach Resort.

Agents can book the Compliments program through any of the operators serving Bermuda, such as Gogo Worldwide Vacations, Travel Impressions, TNT Vacations, Delta Vacations, Continental Airlines Vacations, Future Vacations, US Airways Vacations, American Airlines Vacations, Classic Custom Vacations, Air Canada Vacations and Red Seal Tours. The program cannot be booked by calling the hotels directly.
