Caribbean Summer Travel Specials from Wimco, Gorgeous Private Villas and Deserted White Sand Beaches Await

NEWPORT, RI - April 2012 - Will the sun and crowds around The Cape, the Jersey Shore, Padre Island, Palm Beach and Ibiza be too hot and heavy this summer? Then think Caribbean where everything that’s laid out for the stars becomes more affordable in the summer, thanks to the Caribbean’s premier full-service villa rental company, WIMCO Villas.

New this summer and fall are a range of Summer Travel Specials for WIMCO’s collection of private villas in the Caribbean, including complimentary rental cars with each villa rental, free nights in select villas, and other treats. These specials apply in St John, Anguilla, Turks & Caicos, St Martin and Barbados. On the French Caribbean island of St Barts, WIMCO provides even more value, offering $100 restaurant vouchers, and 2 for 1 spa deals with the premiere spa service company on the island Ligne St Barth. WIMCO also offers a host of hotel specials including free nights, comp meals and arrival gifts. Details are available on WIMCO’s Summer Travel Specials page or by calling 1-888-522-8239.

“We’ve assembled an exciting list of exclusive offers and value-added programs,” says WIMCO’s president Stiles Bennet. “The secret of the Caribbean’s allure as a summer vacation destination is that off-season pricing applies – about 35% lower than winter pricing – and the temperatures stay in the mid 80s, with mild humidity, while the temperatures along the coasts of the US and Europe soar into the 90s. Islands like St Barts also arrange concerts and culinary events as an added enticement to visit during the summer. Another plus is that the Caribbean’s world famous beaches, coral reefs, and popular villas and hotels are largely deserted during the summer months… more space, privacy and value for the savvy traveler."
