Imagine an exotic getaway where 78 degree weather is guaranteed or your money back!! This is not as far-fetched as it sounds my dear LUX readers.
It seems that Barbados tourism authority is willing to make a weather guarantee for all interested vacationers, which clearly sets them apart by being the first ‘country in the world’ to make such a promise. The ‘Perfect Weather Guarantee’ will actually pay you $100 a day if the temperature falls under 78 degrees and it rains more then ¼ inch. How much more LUX-tastic can it get?
Barbados is both a solace for relaxation and a virtual Mecca for active lifestyles and cultural pursuits. Far beyond stretches of sublime beach, our warm hospitality extends to splendid cultural events, sporting activities and historic attractions. Whether you’re planning a family holiday or sportsman’s escape, romantic getaway or business trip, Barbados offers a diverse cross-section of things to do and wonders to enjoy.—Visit Barbados official website
There are some restrictions that apply in order to take advantage of this weather guarantee. The trip must be booked prior to June 7 of this year and you must travel from now until December 18, 2009. The advantage is that there is NO additional fee for this promise, although you will need to book through an approved vender: Orbitz, cheapcaribbean.com, bookit.com or Funjet Vacations.
