Travel 2 expands Caribbean portfolio after strong regional performance

Travel 2 has reported that its Caribbean bookings are up 18% this year and in response has added 26 new properties and 12 new tours to its 2018 ‘Mexico, Latin America and Caribbean’ brochure.

Famed for having over 70 miles of white-sand beaches, Barbados has proved the worldwide operator’s best-selling Caribbean island. The company has therefore introduced four new hotels, including the adult-only Treasure Beach hotel which reopened in November after an extensive renovation programme.

The worldwide operator’s Mexico portfolio, meanwhile, will be boosted by eleven additional hotels, including the recently refurbished Barcelo Maya Beach and the new family-friendly Panama Jack Resorts Gran Porto Playa del Carmen. Other top performers across the region include Grenada - up by a record 105.3% and Trinidad and Tobago which experienced a 90.7% increase.

Nick Hughes, sales director dnata Travel B2B Europe, said: “Whilst the Caribbean has received a lot of media attention this year, it’s important to understand that it is business as usual for most islands. We were especially fortunate that 99% of the properties in our Caribbean portfolio were not badly affected by this year’s hurricanes and hope that by expanding the range of holiday options we can capture the imagination of even more travellers in 2018.”

To celebrate the new 2018 brochure, three Nespresso Coffee machines are up for grabs. Every agent who makes a qualifying booking before December 24, including return flights and a minimum of five nights’ ground arrangements, to any destination from the operator’s new brochure, will be automatically entered into the prize draw.
