Government is offering rebates ranging from US$100 to US$350 per night to visitors who stayed in approved accommodations between last December 24 and January 31 whose second PCR COVID-19 test took longer than three days to be processed.

On Monday, the Barbados Tourism Investment Inc (BTMI) reached out to affected visitors, inviting them to apply via a rebate application form published on its website.

The plan involves US$350 per night to luxury hotel guests; US$250 to those in A Class hotels; US$150 to those in B Class hotels and US$100 per night to those staying in other approved accommodation, excluding villas.

The BTMI letter said Government was making the offer as “a gesture of good faith”, but advised that only one applicant rebate per hotel room would be allowed. (GC)
