Bermuda Temerature Guarantee

We’ve run across some unusual guarantees but it would seem very risky to guarantee climate. This is just what the Island of Bermuda has done, however, and the promotion has been working for the last four years with increasingly popular results.

Bermuda is a tourist dstination that pre-dates most other tropical paradises in the hemisphere but it is less balmy than recent tourist upstarts like Barbados or the Bahamas. Seeing themselves bypassed, although their climate is both temperate and predicable, they decided on a scheme that would draw attention to their almost perfect weather.

Any day the temperature fails to reach 68 degrees, paticipating hotels offer a minimum of 10% off their daily winter rates and discounts are offered at retail shops and attractions. Even a free one-day transportation pass for busses and ferries is issued to help tourists take advantage of the discounts.

The promotion also includes free admission to Cultural Open House attractions on the following day including The Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo; the Bermuda National Gallery; the Leamington Caves; and Fort St. Catherine.

If you want perfect weather for your holiday actually guaranteed, contact The Bermuda Department of Tourism or check out their website for events, hotels and a FAQ on Bermuda.
