BARBADOS, which once featured as one of the most sought after Caribbean tourist destinations has slipped from that position while St Lucia is slowly taking over.
This was revealed in the just released Hayes & Jarvis May 2013 Long Haul Holidays Trend Report in which Barbados is among the Top 10 Bestselling Destinations once more.
Despite this general trend however, Barbados is enjoying the spin-off from British Airways Holidays marketing, evidenced through a 50 per cent increase in business to the island.
This was disclosed by Claire Bentley, managing director of British Airways Holidays on Wednesday night, who has advised that Barbados should maintain its hotel prices at an affordable level and continue to offer a scale of accommodation that makes the island attractive to British visitors.
