Saint Lucia Agent Months begins

GIS:-SLAM showcases Saint Lucia to travel agents, and includes discounts on accommodations, airfares and attractions.

The Saint Lucia Tourist Board (SLTB), has launched its annual travel agent incentive program, Saint Lucia Agent Months (SLAM).

Now in its seventh year, SLAM showcases Saint Lucia to visiting travel agents so that they have an intimate knowledge of the island. Travel agents are vital to the success of any tourist destination, as a result, SLAM includes special rates on accommodations, tours and attractions for agents, and allows them an opportunity to conduct site inspections at the various hotels.

A wide range of hotels and resorts are participating in SLAM. They include Alize Inn, Anse Chastanet, BLU St. Lucia, BodyHoliday Saint Lucia, Coco Palm, the Fond Doux Plantation and Resort, Harmony Suites, Hotel Chocolat, Jade Mountain, La Dauphine Estate, Marigot Beach Club and Dive Resort, Rendezvous, St. James’s Club Morgan Bay, Sugar Beach – A Viceroy Resort, Ti Kaye Resort and Spa and Villa Beach Cottages.

Travel agents can also take advantage of the fun tours and attractions provided by Rainforest Forest Sky Rides/Adventures St. Lucia, the botanical gardens, and Diamond Falls among others. Participating agents get to enjoy the total experience of what it is like to have a uniquely Saint Lucian vacation.

SLTB’s Director of Marketing (USA) Kelly Fontenelle-Clarke, said SLAM is “a great way for travel agents to experience the destination while they get updated on all the product offerings that Saint Lucia has to offer.” An added bonus of SLAM is that agents can save 50 to 70 percent off published fares via WestJet Vacations when they book and travel by December 15. Blackout dates apply.

Interested agents should contact 1-877-664-3205 to take advantage of WestJet’s travel agent discount program. SLAM runs through Nov. 30, 2017.
