Indian Ocean specialist Hummingbird Travel expands in the Caribbean

Indian Ocean specialist Hummingbird Travel is set to expand its offering into the Caribbean. The destination management company and wholesaler has specialised in the Indian Ocean for more than 20 years.

The new venture will see the brand feature 17 Caribbean islands in its portfolio for the first time, including well-loved destination like Barbados and Jamaica as well as smaller isles like Anguilla and St Vincent and the Grenadines. 

Hummingbird has established partnerships with more than 70 hotels in the Caribbean and has pledged to offer the industry strong availability, swift turnaround times and competitive pricing.

It added that a “state-of-the-art” booking system would allow agents and operators to easily access and book Caribbean rates, while a dedicated reservations team specialising in the Caribbean would be equipped to assist industry partners with enquiries. 

Hummingbird said the introduction of the Caribbean as a new destination underscored its commitment to delivering “top-tier service, luxury options and exclusive offers to its industry partners”.

Chief executive Tom Chambers said: "We have been making the Indian Ocean, a sometimes complex destination, easy and accessible to travel companies around the world for over 22 years. It is with great excitement that we can now provide the same levels of service for companies wishing to sell the Caribbean. 

“We have launched the destination with the existing foundations of rates, knowledge and high levels of service, both on the ground and at the enquiry stage. Backed up by state-of-the-art technology with our in-house booking system, white labelling options and API connectivity, we hope to open up the Caribbean to a whole new audience as well as increase the bookings of those already selling it."
