TRAVEL TIP #10: Trade Show bonus points and current St Kitts entry
Trade Show Bonus Points: As many of you know in September, we made the difficult decision to cancel our 2021 Trade Show. We were expecting upwards of 600 people at an indoor event and decided that moving forward wasn’t in the best interest of our people, vendors and customers given ongoing COVID concerns. At this show you would have been extended an opportunity to earn 3000 Destinations bonus points. Here is the good news, we have gone ahead and added 3000 points to your bonus point total anyways.
US Passport lead times: Our May 1, 2022 St. Kitts trip is just 30 weeks away. Why would I mention this? Currently the US Passport office is affirming an 18-week lead time for new passports, with renewals being just a few weeks faster. Check your passport immediately to see when it expires. In order to travel to St. Kitts your passport must be valid for six months beyond our May 1, 2022 departure date.
St Kitts entry requirements: Currently, only fully vaccinated adults will be allowed entry into St. Kitts & Nevis along with non-vaccinated children under 18 traveling with fully-vaccinated parents or guardians. Based on the recent surge, our travel experts in St. Kitts strongly suggest that we anticipate that this vaccination requirement will still be in place in May 2022.
Vendor Support is a Key Component of our Destinations program
The Granite Group is fortunate to have great customers. We are equally fortunate to partner with top manufacturers and manufacturer’s representatives. Their involvement helps make our Destinations Travel Incentive Program possible. Each month we celebrate the support of a few top level sponsors by offering you the opportunity to earn bonus points on your purchases.
