Chapel Hill, NC (September 19, 2013) — Divi Resorts, a major hotel operator in the Caribbean, last month launched Divi Vacations, a new one-stop source for booking vacation packages for seven of its properties. In addition to streamlining the reservation process for flights and accommodations, the new booking engine assures maximum savings on the cost of a trip. The new platform also offers more personalized online vacation planning through a staff of Divi Resorts vacation specialists at its round-the-clock call center. The company has more than 1200 rooms available through Divi Vacations in Aruba, Barbados, Bonaire and St. Maarten. The booking engine launched on August 1 and is found on the main Divi Resorts website.
The vacation packages from Divi Vacations provide the lowest price on rooms at the resorts, exceeding published best available rates when booked separately. Discounted airfare from major airlines serving the region increase the savings. Depending on the season, customers will save from $150 to $345 per trip. Airline partners are American, Delta, Jet Blue, United, US Airways, Virgin Atlantic, among others. The platform also offers users options to add hotel transfers, travel insurance and in certain locations, rental cars.
Divi Resorts is one of the few hotel operators offering a direct avenue to vacation packages. According to EJ Schanfarber, president of Divi Resorts, “The launch of Divi Vacations strengthens our company’s position as the Caribbean travel expert.” He added, “The cost savings built into the combined booking structure will be very appealing to travelers, but the knowledgeable customer support truly gives Divi Vacations an edge for booking Caribbean travel online. We wanted the booking experience to be easy and helpful, so that the vacation got off to a great start, even in the planning stages.”
The character of each Divi resort takes its cues from the local island setting, providing a variety of vacation experiences, from a romantic 20-room hotel in Barbados for couples only, an expansive golf and beach resort with all-suite villas in Aruba to family fun. Divi’s Treasures of the Caribbean family activity program, available at six of the resorts in the Divi Vacations program, is an ideal complement to the company’s standard policy that children stay and eat free from April 1 until December 21.
