The US Virgin Islands Will “Pay” You $300 to Visit!

The US Virgin Islands is commemorating its 100th year as a US territory. The centennial will be on March 31st 2017, and the islands are offering $300 for visitors to learn more about the islandFor all of 2017, you can get $300 in spending credit if you book an eligible hotel in the US Virgin Islands for at least 3 nights. They will even throw in an extra commemorative souvenir if you are there in March.

You will have to book by October 1, 2017, and travel between January 2 and December 31, 2017. Book using the code CP1 on the official website. The $300 travel credit isn’t exactly cash, but it’s good for historical and cultural tours and activities. If you are hoping to take a few tours while on the islands, you will probably be good to go. However, if you’re planning on spending the entire vacation at the beach, you probably won’t be able to take full advantage of this credit.

Still, this is a pretty incredible offer if you have the US Virgin Islands on your bucket list, or might need an incentive to choose one destination over another!  For example, the Bellavista Bed & Breakfast in Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas is going for $195 per night.

  1. We stayed on St John for three consecutive nights. Unfortunately, because the USVI tourism office is unorganized, we did not get our $300 voucher until two hours before our flight home. It’s pretty restricted to what you can spend it on, and so we weren’t able to spend any of it.

    My hotel said that this happened pretty often. If you’re planning on going, don’t plan on getting these spending credits. I tried contacting their office, but I haven’t received a reply (it’s been about two weeks).

  2. My husband and I are spending fourteen days in ST Thomas Dec2-Dec14 2017. Our reservations are made with VRBO on Saphire Beach, our flights are made with United Airlines. We are flying first class both ways. My question is we are planning on renting a car and doing all sorts of escutsions , sailing, snorkeling, traveling to St Johns, St Croix. Many visitor shopping eating st many restaurants etc. Hopefully we will be able to get our 300.00 ea to spend on the many things we are going to be exploring and enjoying in the Islands. We spent 10 days two years ago in St Croix. It is only fair that we will be able to be elgeble to get the same rewards that other visitors get while we are on the island for fourteen days. It would be a huge diss appointment if we are left out because we are spending 5,000 on our accoumadations without our food and fun while we are there. Please review our situation and consider it please. The money’s will go right back into the local population. Thank you.
