The offer is only valid for bookings made before November 9, 2020.
The good news is that the deal is on dates between 2021, 2022, and 2023, even if you’re not entirely traveling at the moment.
Departure airports include Manchester and Scotland as well as selected London airports.
Customers can secure the offer price with a deposit of £ 175 per person.
Payment does not have to be made in full until 71 days before departure.
To ensure that customers are completely safe in the ever-changing travel corridors and the ongoing pandemic, all holidays are protected by ATOL, ABTA and IATA.
Offers include stays of seven nights at Sandals Grenada Resort & Spa, Sandals Regency La Toc Golf Resort & Spa in St. Lucia, Sandals Grande Antigua Resort & Spa, Sandals Barbados, Sandals Royal Barbados and Sandals Negril Beach Resort & Spa in Jamaica.
At the time of writing, vacationers are required to follow each nation’s individual entry requirements, although all destinations except Jamaica are on the travel corridor list.

Entry requirements for Barbados
Travelers flying to Barbados must complete and submit an online immigration form 24 hours prior to travel.
The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) explains: “Barbados describes Great Britain as a high risk country. UK travelers must arrive within 72 hours of arrival with a negative PCR test performed by a certified or accredited laboratory.
“Upon arrival, you must quarantine yourself in government-approved facilities (a designated holding hotel or approved villa at your own expense or a government facility for free) and take another test 4-5 days after the initial acceptance test .
“If this second test is negative, you will no longer be quarantined.
“If vacationers test positive at any point during their stay, they must self-isolate until the country’s authorities are satisfied that they have recovered.
This can be done in an approved hotel or villa at the expense of the traveler.
The same applies if vacationers are notified that they have been in close contact with a positive case of coronavirus.
Entry requirements for St. Lucia
All travelers traveling to St. Lucia are required to complete a pre-arrival registration form, which can be found on the St. Lucia Government website.
“Reservations for a government-run quarantine facility or a COVID-19 certified property must be confirmed prior to travel,” explains the FCDO. The pre-departure exam is compulsory.
“All travelers must provide certified evidence of a negative COVID-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test performed seven days or less before traveling to St. Lucia,” the FCDO continues.
“Passengers will be refused boarding if they cannot prove a negative test.
“You will need to check with an accredited healthcare provider in the UK or the country you are traveling from for PCR testing options.
“You shouldn’t use the NHS testing service to get a test to make your trip to another country easier. You should arrange a private test. “
All arriving passengers are checked at the airport including temperature controls.
“All passengers are transported through immigration, baggage claim, customs and, except those from the travel bubble, arrivals for transportation to their COVID-19 certified property or a government-run quarantine facility,” the FCDO added.
All international visitors must stay in a COVID-certified hotel for the duration of their stay.
Entry requirements for Grenada
Travelers must provide a negative PCR test performed within seven days of travel.
You will then need to make a five-day reservation at an approved observation and quarantine facility. On the fourth day, visitors will have the opportunity to receive a PCR test and be accepted into the community. If not, they must stay in their hotel for the duration of their stay.
Residents on the fourth day must obtain confirmation of a negative PCR test and clearance from health officials before going home.
The FCDO advises, “You should not use the NHS testing service to get a test to facilitate your travel to another country. You should arrange a private test. “
Entry requirements for Antigua
“All passengers aged 12 and over arriving by air in Antigua and Barbuda, including those crossing the country, must have a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR test carried out no later than seven days prior to arrival”, explains the FCDO.
Further health checks will take place at the airport.
Measures are subject to change, but currently include “mandatory temperature, travel history checks, a check that your property is on the Antigua and Barbuda government’s approved list, filling out a health declaration form and other tests for coronavirus”.
The FCDO warns vacationers against using NHS services for testing to facilitate travel to another country.
It adds, “The Antigua and Barbuda Department of Health and Wellness recommends that all arrivals be monitored for coronavirus for up to 14 days and that the ultimate decision by the quarantine authority is who will self-isolate or quarantine on arrival got to. ”
