(PRESS RELEASE VIA SNO) – Visitors to Saint Lucia will find it easier than ever to stay connected whilst enjoying the Helen of the West.
That’s thanks to a landmark agreement between the Saint Lucia Hotel and Tourism Association, SLHTA, and Flow, Saint Lucia and the Caribbean’s foremost telecommunications service provider.
Whether you are a returning national, a Caribbean native, or traveling from popular destinations such as the USA, Canada, or United Kingdom, you can buy a prepaid 4G LTE SIM pack from your destination management company, and SLHTA members including car rental agencies, taxi drivers, tour operators, hotels and guesthouses.
All the guest needs to do upon arrival in Saint Lucia is to place the SIM card in an unlocked handset, and he or she will be able to enjoy the island’s fastest and most reliable mobile data network. Activation is automatic, and the visitor will be able to able to buy additional credit at local retailers or online to share photos and video.
Flow Saint Lucia Country Manager, Chris Williams, said:
“As the exclusive telecommunications provider for the SLHTA, we are pleased to be able to provide this new solution. Very often, even when tourists are touching down in Saint Lucia for just a few hours, they want to be able to share their experience, send their photos and videos to friends and family back home via social media. We are facilitating that ability to enrich your visit, whilst giving SLHTA members the chance to make some additional revenue.”
Said SLHTA President, Sanovnik Destang:
“This partnership with Flow and SLHTA is ground-breaking and has never been done before in the Caribbean. We are happy that Flow was forward thinking enough to see the need for this product line and was able to bring our concept to fruition in a timely manner. We hope visitors and locals alike will take advantage of this new service to stay in touch with friends and family and to share their experiences in Saint Lucia with the world in real time using Flow’s enhanced 4G LTE network.”
The SLHTA and Cable & Wireless Communications last year signed an 18-month strategic partnership through the company’s business brand. C&W Business is the Official Technology Consultant and exclusive ICT and Telecommunications Partner of the island’s principal tourism private sector agency.
