The Dutch Caribbean island of St. Maarten has introduced Travel Aqent Months, a program that will offer exclusive discounts and perks to agents registered with the International Association of Travel Agents (IATA).

From September through November 2021, the initiative will allow agents to take advantage of special rates to immerse themselves in a variety of accommodations, restaurants, retail stores and experiences around St. Maarten.

More than 20 hotels throughout the island are extending special nightly rates ranging from $75 to $145 USD, plus additional perks in many cases, including upgrades or onsite F&B discounts.  Restaurant specials from participating partners include complimentary welcome cocktails at Emilio’s, Ocean Lounge at Holland House and Hideaway Restaurant & Bar and up to 20 percent off at Coffee Lounge, Karakter Restaurant, Pineapple Pete and Rusty Parrot. 

Finally, while exploring the island, available destination experiences include deals from partners like Rainforest Adventures, home to the world’s steepest zipline; Caribbean Brewing Company, where the island’s first ever local craft beer was created; and tours such as a sunset catamaran cruise with Pyratz, bicycle excursions with Tri-Sport or horseback riding at Seaside Nature Park, to name just a few.

“St. Maarten and its local partners are proud to extend this program to travel agents so they may better familiarize themselves with the island's easy accessibility from many major cities, range in accommodation offerings, and variety of experiences,” said May-Ling Chun, St. Maarten’s Director of Tourism.

“This three-month period is filled with accessible and attractive offerings for IATA agents to explore the island, and subsequently be able to provide their clients with unique and curated experiences through their first-hand knowledge.”
