In commemoration of the launching of the Virgin Islands Commemorative quarter (see post above), the USVI tourism bureau has announced its Cent-sational Promotion, which features an attention-grabbing rate of 25 cents per room per night. The book-by deadline is within 25 days, November 2, although it’s possible the promotion will sell out before then.
You can stay up to three nights at participating hotels—for a grand total of 75 cents—and will also get a $25 per person dining credit, a $25 per person activities credit, and a commemorative quarter Scotiabank coin set. But there’s no escaping taxes; resort taxes average seven percent, and a standard eight percent government tax applies to all bookings.
Travel dates are October 9 through November 15, and reservations must be booked for air-inclusive packages through BookIt.com, 800/782-9722. U.S. citizens don’t need a passport to visit the USVI (St. Croix, St. John, and St. Thomas), which makes it easier to take advantage of this short-notice deal.
