What can we do to help the locals?
St Martin's tourism industry has almost entirely collapsed. St Martin/St Maarten and its surrounding islands are suffering from a severe economic downturn, putting many people out of work and under incredible strain, given that tourism drives the region's economy. A way to help the locals is to consider rescheduling your travel plans instead of cancelling bookings entirely.
You could also decide to book your next vacation now, even if this means booking more than a year in advance.
When it is safe to travel again, and if you have the time, why not explore more of the region than you may have previously considered. St Martin, Saba, Anguilla and St Barth are all within easy reach of each other and offer something unique and worth experiencing. You can learn more about the region to help plan your trip on our dedicated Travel Tips pages.
If you had a ferry or fast boat booking for travel in the next few months, or for other destination-related questions, feel free to contact us directly if you wish to reschedule your trip. We also invite you to consult our Terms and Conditions if you have any questions regarding a cancellation.
