Who doesn’t enjoy to travel? It’s a great way to break the hold that reality has, as well as providing an excellent way to experience new areas, culture, food, and sights. While none of us need a good reason to pack our bags and head out on an adventure, today we have a great reason to do so. This year you can get paid to visit the U.S. Virgin Islands, letting you enjoy a vacation and save some of your hard-earned cash in the process. The U.S. Virgin Islands wants you to visit, and they are giving tourists $300 in spending credits for vacations there. The deal comes in honor of the centennial celebration of Denmark selling the islands to the United States.
For travelers who spend at least three consecutive nights on St. Thomas, St. John and/or St. Croix they will receive $300 in Virgin Islands spending credits for tours and activities. For guests that arrive during March, they will also receive a commemorative souvenir, in recognition of the day Denmark sold the islands, known as “Transfer Day,” on March 31st. The best part is that it doesn’t matter if you book after the anniversary, as long it’s before Oct. 1 and you travel to the U.S. Virgin Islands during the 2017 calendar year you will still be eligible for the $300 spending credits. Tourists can redeem the spending credits by staying at participating hotels. Sounds like a great reason to plan a trip right?
