Tourism Tries To Jump On Black Friday/Cyber Monday Bandwagon With Discounts on Hotels and Shopping
CHARLOTTE AMALIE – The V.I. Tourism Department said this week that travelers to the territory can save 25 percent on their hotel stays and get $500 in spending credits as part of its Black Friday/Cyber Monday Sale.
The promotion is aimed at providing travelers with a value-added getaway to experience St. Croix, St. John and St. Thomas in the new year, according to Tourism Commissioner Beverly Nicholson-Doty.
Beginning on Friday, November 25 (Black Friday), through Monday, November 28 (Cyber Monday), travelers can realize the hotel discounts at participating hotels and get up to $500 in credits that can be used for activities, dining and shopping throughout the destination.
A minimum five-night stay is required to take advantage of this special offer, Nicholson-Doty said.
“Toys and televisions are not the only gifts on holiday wish lists this year – travel experiences are in demand too,” Nicholson-Doty said.
The tourism commissioner said that Black Friday and Cyber Monday are two of the biggest shopping days in the United States and “we want to offer travelers an opportunity to escape to the U.S. Virgin Islands for a value-added experience.”
With no passports required for U.S. Citizens, a trip to the U.S. Virgin Islands is affordable and accessible, offering visitors the chance to enjoy great duty-free shopping, award-winning beaches, cultural activities and festivals.
