We are a Caribbean holiday specialist, with many years’ experience, the only specialist for the islands we offer. We are the “preferred tour operator” for many resorts, with exclusive rates, so we can book your ideal holiday at the best price. We visit the islands regularly, gathering local knowledge, and we have personally selected the accommodation and services we offer. This enables us to advise you on the accommodation and services that suit you, so that you can make “informed” choices.
Being a specialist is the big difference between us and other travel companies.
YOUR HOLIDAY PROPOSAL
We prepare a detailed holiday proposal for your consideration. The itinerary is fine-tuned to suit you to your needs and preferences, using as much information as you care to give us. We really do “tailor” your holiday. A “typical” holiday itinerary may include: flights -accommodation – meals – vehicle hire – scuba diving – excursions – airport transfers etc. We can also organise weddings and multi island holidays. All quotes for holidays are given with no obligation. You might not travel with us this time, hopefully we will hear from you again in the future.
We are also a diving holiday specialist. We know how the diving schedules work and have enjoyed the diving on these islands. We can book all your diving requirements as part of an ATOL protected holiday, including instruction courses for all levels. We have discounted diving holiday packages – our DDD offers – designed to give you an honest price for a complete diving holiday. They can apply to non-divers – we just take the “air” out ! They can be fine-tuned, adding other diving services, to suit you. Beware of “dive holiday” prices that do not include diving. See our interactive maps of information regarding dive sites on each island.
We send lots of information that will help you enjoy your holiday to the full. We have visited, selected and personally recommend the accommodation we offer you. We can advise you about the accommodation and services that match your preferences and wishes. We can also book activities or excursions and add them to your ATOL protected holiday itinerary. Each holiday is individually planned and priced. We can answer your questions from personal experience. Our information is based on personal experience and the holiday experiences our customers.
We find the best fare and schedule for you – taking into consideration all the various factors – fares, accommodation prices, special offers etc. It is important for us to know if you have any flexibility in your holiday dates. We will take flight options for you which fixes the fare and gives you time to consider your holiday proposal in your own time. There is no obligation in taking flight options. We will book inter-island flights if you intend to visit more than one island. Depending on flight schedules you can choose the length of your holiday.
We will always get you the best fare and payment terms
Local knowledge and legal protection are important but we are well aware price is also a factor. Our prices are inclusive of all applicable taxes and charges. Other travel websites and Caribbean suppliers often quote without taxes and surcharges. We are confident we can beat any “like for like” quote. As “preferred tour operator” for many resorts our prices are lower than other UK companies and the Caribbean suppliers own websites. You are guaranteed a better price from the start. We do not pass on credit card charges.
Booking with us is easier – cheaper – safer
WHY BOOK WITH US?
We know the islands well, we know how they “work”. We regularly visit all the accommodation we offer. We are a small, friendly company with a high level of personal service, and extensive local knowledge. This, and the chance to chat about the islands with a specialist who has been there, sets us apart from the other travel companies and online booking websites. We offer a wide choice of accommodation and services and we tailor-make your individual holiday itinerary. Our exclusive rates give you the best price. We are a UK based, ATOL bonded, tour operator.
Buying “direct” from the Caribbean is complicated, more expensive and has no safeguards or ATOL guarantees.
Caribbean hotels often exclude charges and taxes from prices which can add up to 20% to the price you first see.
Credit card charges can be up to 6% in the Caribbean.
Some credit cards now charge a 2.99% “premium adjustment” charge for foreign transactions.
Paying by card means the full price will not be known until you see your statement – long after your return.
These factors alone make our prices around 10% less than booking “direct”.
OUR HOLIDAYS ARE PROTECTED
We are a UK registered, ATOL bonded, tour operator. Our holidays are protected by this guarantee, underwritten by the Civil Aviation Authority. Websites without an ATOL licence have no such guarantee. We are also bound by European consumer protection laws. Websites / suppliers based outside the UK are not. For more information click the ATOL logo. The Civil Aviation Authority warns holidaymakers against “booking direct” with suppliers overseas.
WHAT WE DO… THAT’S ONLY THE HALF OF IT!
This page briefly outlines what we do but can’t cover every aspect of our service. We appreciate how important your holiday is to you and this is always our main consideration. We are very experienced in organising holidays in this special part of the world. Our reputation for excellent holidays and great customer service is our biggest asset, something we work very hard to protect. Whatever your preference, enjoying the tranquillity and fantastic weather on a beach or the outdoor sports available –
we will always do our very best to get that perfect holiday for you.
Who are we
Caribbean Fun Travel is a family run, independent tour operator. Some years ago we visited Bonaire and Curacao with a Dutch friend who had a successful travel company specialising in the Dutch Caribbean. We fell in love with the islands. We decided that promoting responsible tourism, organising “holidays-of-a-lifetime” and working with the friendly people on the islands was a worthwhile career change, with masses of “job satisfaction”. The best part of our “job”, by a long way, is talking about these wonderful islands with people who are as enthusiastic about them as we are. We are a small, friendly company which puts customer service first. The pictures are of us visiting the islands, we hope you’ll find it useful to put a “face to a name”.
