USVI Launches Delta Island Time Getaway Promotion For Labor Day Travel & Beyond

U.S. Virgin Islands (August 12, 2013)— The U.S. Virgin Islands Department of Tourism has launched the Delta Island Time Getaway promotion, offering more than $450 in savings on a U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI) getaway booked with Delta Vacations.  Travelers who book Tuesday or Wednesday departures for travel through May 31, 2014 will receive a $250 instant air credit and a fifth night free at participating hotels on St. Thomas and St. John, in addition to $200 in certificates to be used at participating restaurants, shops and attractions.  The package must be booked by Sept. 30 using the promotional code USVIMW.

“Labor Day weekend is quickly approaching, so this offer would benefit U.S. travelers looking to savor the final days of summer amidst world-class beaches, dining and entertainment,” said USVI Commissioner of Tourism, Beverly Nicholson-Doty. “Not only does the Delta Island Time Getaway take the ‘labor’ out of Labor Day travel planning, but it can also be applied on booked departures through Spring 2014, perfect for those looking to defrost from the winter cold.”

For the promotion to be applied, stays must be double occupancy and have a five-night minimum. To book, and for a complete list of participating hotels and resorts, visit http://www.deltavacations.com/specials/specialoffer.do?specialOfferCode=17201DVC.
