  • Hotels, attractions offer great discounts

The Labour Day weekend is the ideal time to take a break and unwind. The Gleaner, for the second year in a row, has teamed up with a number of preferred hotels and attractions to offer attractive discounts, in some instances as high as 50 per cent, as part of its Stay Local promotion.

For the Stay Local weekend, Jamaicans will be able to access some of their favourite hotels and attractions for between 30 and 50 per cent less than the regularly advertised rates. This special promotion affords almost everyone the opportunity to have fun for a fraction of the usual cost. More important, more people will be able to travel around the island to experience the local offerings.

And with the Stay Local weekend just days away, starting today those who are interested in taking advantage of the great discounts being offered, can book their spot by logging on to www.jamaica-gleaner.com/staylocal. Access to these attractive discounts can only be made through this website.

Travel with ease

To make the trip less of a hassle, Yardtravel.com has come on board and is organising special trips to participating hotels and attractions from the Corporate Area. Those interested will be able to reserve their seats by booking online.

Director of marketing for Yardtravel.com, Georgia Crawford, says patrons will benefit from similar rates of discount on the cost of trips. She describes the Stay Local promotion as an excellent way to have people visit hotels and attractions.

"We think that it will provide a boost to the industry," she says.
