After 37 years of sending cold Canadians to Barbados, one of Canada’s oldest travel companies has called it quits. Conquest Vacations says they will not strand any travelers — but reality often eclipses media releases. Although Conquest only represents 7% of the Canadian vacation package industry, its failing is an important indicator of reality.
Whatever happens, even if Barbados hotels and tour operators are not paid — we hope they have enough sense, compassion and intuition to keep all the cold Canadians warm and happy. Give them fond memories of Barbados and how we came together to show the kind of people we truly are.
