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) four times per week, operated by British Airways. (NB: the plane touches down in Nassau, Bahamas but passengers travelling to Grand Cayman do not disembark).
The fact that the three islands are totally different means the potential for three different types of holiday in one.
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
Inter-island flights: Some internal flights are operated by Cayman Airways on small 16-seater Twin Otter planes
Direct flight time from London Heathrow to Owen Roberts International Airport, Grand Cayman is approximately 12 hours, including a stop in Nassau (passengers flying on to Cayman do not disembark)
English is the main language
