Travelers wishing to support the victims of Hurricane Dorian are stepping up to the plate by seizing opportunities to travel to the Caribbean and areas of The Bahamas unaffected by the storm, the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA) says.   

Nearly 100 of the region's hotels responded to the CHTA’s call for support of a one-month online travel auction last month. The response from hoteliers was overwhelming, prompting CHTA to launch a second travel auction this month. To note: The first round of the online auction raised more than $50,000, which will be directed to assist with the long-term recovery efforts, helping affected tourism-related employees and building back a better tourism product for the Abacos and Grand Bahama.

Encouraged by the contributions of Caribbean hotels and resorts, which continued to pour in following the rollout of the auction, the association launched Round Two of the auction early in October with many more options from some of the resorts and destinations.   

Those looking to visit the Caribbean “will have the twin benefit of booking holiday travel at a bargain, while supporting the people of The Bahamas," says Frank Comito, CHTA's director general and CEO.

Hurricane Dorian destroyed critical infrastructure, leveled thousands of homes and businesses and uprooted the lives of tens of thousands of residents, many of whom are now homeless.
