Until now, hanging around at the airport on departure day has felt like the inevitable price you pay for going on an exotic holiday. But we believe that life should be a beach every day of your holiday – especially your last day.
Introducing our exclusive Departure Beach! Indulge in food, soft drinks, tea and coffee – all included – and top up that tan on or take a dip in the ocean. A super-cool Virgin Holidays lounge, but on a beach? Genius!
We’ll pick you up from your hotel after breakfast and whisk your hold luggage straight to the airport so you don’t have to worry about it.
You can check in on the beach (Brownes Beach in Carlisle Bay) and get your boarding pass too. We’ll also provide you with a locker to store your hand luggage in.
Relax. Enjoy the full-service bar (your soft drinks, tea and coffee are included) and tuck in to a spot of lunch (included). You could even go for a refreshing dip...
Naturally, if you do, we’ll sort you out with a beach towel and a small plastic bag to put your wet beachwear in. We've even got showers, so you can be fresh and sand-free for your flight.
If you’d like to cool off, simply head into the air-conditioned lounge upstairs. Here you’ll find a games console-equipped kids’ area, plasma screens and complimentary WiFi access.
Rest assured that if you’re visiting Barbados with us, we’ll make your last day the best it can possibly be.
