KEY SELLING POINTS
The Caribbean is on many people’s bucket list but selling the Cayman Islands stands out for a number of reasons:
1. Repeat business
Visitor satisfaction rates are high so expect repeat bookings and referrals to family and friends.
There is a direct flight from London Heathrow (T5) five times per week*, operated by British Airways. (NB: the plane touches down in Nassau, Bahamas but passengers travelling to Grand Cayman do not disembark).
*from March 2023
3. Diversity of experience
The fact that the three islands are totally different means the potential for three different types of holiday in one. Cayman is also a fantastic twin-centre option with many US destinations, as well as Canada and Cuba.
4. Culinary capital of the Caribbean
Food and drink is a huge part of the Cayman Islands experience. Five-star dining, pop-up restaurants, food festivals and roadside jerk shacks make this a foodie heaven.
5. Secluded beaches or cosmopolitan town?
Your clients don’t have to choose, they really can have the best of both worlds as everything is close by.
6. A huge range of activities and experiences
Swimming with stingrays, visiting ancient natural caves, getting a bird’s eye view of the islands on a helicopter tour, kayaking the mangroves, visiting historical sites and following a nature trail are just SOME of the activities available.
7. The PEOPLE!
Voted the most friendly nation by Forbes magazine, your clients are guaranteed to be met by a warm Caymanian welcome. We call it Caymankind!
8. The weather
With an average temperature of 28°C the islands are perfect for year-round sunshine
Visas: British nationals do not need a visa to enter the Cayman Islands. Full visa requirements can be found at www.immigration.gov.ky

The Cayman Islands dollar (CI$) is the main currency but US$ are accepted in the majority of places across the islands at a fixed rate of CI$1 = US$1.25.
