REBUILDING INTRA-CARIBBEAN TRAVEL

A Two-Part Session Conducted by the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association 
While international travel into the Caribbean moves towards recovery, approaching 75 percent of pre-pandemic levels, travel within the region has only recovered to an estimated 30 percent of pre-pandemic levels.  

The ramifications of this loss is having broad consequences, as business, leisure and personal travel broadly impacts local economies and companies and the well-being of Caribbean residents.  Intra-Caribbean travel affects all Caribbean destinations and for many accommodation providers and tourism-related businesses it’s a significant part of their business.

Restoring and growing this travel segment requires a concerted effort focused on addressing the obstacles and stimulating its return. 

Join us for a two-part session as we look to….

  • Identify Opportunities for Businesses and Destinations to Reignite, Develop, Grow and Promote this Important Travel Segment
  • Share Best Practices by Companies and Destinations in Stimulating Intra-Caribbean Travel
  • Provide Destinations and National Hotel and Tourism Associations with Insights and Information to Support Local Policies and Efforts to Restore and Grow Intra-Caribbean Travel
