Classic Vacations has announced its "CaribbeanStrong" campaign, encouraging travel partners to support communities in Caribbean areas affected by the recent hurricanes, Maria and Irma. 

For every Caribbean booking of five nights or more with Classic’s Change and Cancellation Waiver, made before November 10 and for travel January 1 through December 15, 2018, Classic will donate $50 to the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association’s (CHTA) Caribbean Tourism Recovery Fund.

“The objective of this campaign is twofold,” said Robert Sasaki, product development manager at Classic Vacations, in a written statement. “We want to help recovery efforts in the Caribbean Islands affected by the recent storms, but we also want to raise awareness of the surrounding islands and the opportunity to visit these beautiful destinations.

More than 70 percent of the Caribbean was unaffected by the recent storms, and destinations, such as Turks and Caicos and the Dominican Republic were minimally affected and continue to welcome guests every day, said Karolin Troubetzkoy, president of the CHTA. 

“Additionally, and more importantly, we want to continue to help the affected islands recover and rebuild, by donating $50 for every qualifying booking traveling to the Caribbean,” said Troubetzkoy. “Since many of the significantly affected islands are unable to rebuild through tourism, which is the backbone of their economy, we want to ease their burden by donating to CHTA’s Caribbean Tourism Recovery Fund.”

More information, as well as sales flyers and full terms and conditions, can be found on Classic Assist and at www.classicvacations.com. Comprehensive information on the Caribbean Tourism Recovery Fund can be found at www.tourismcares.org/caribbean/.
