~ In honor of the newly minted U.S. Virgin Islands quarter, travelers are enticed with unprecedented 25 cent per night offer ~

ST. THOMAS, U.S. Virgin Islands, October 9, 2009 - In honor of the Territory's very own United States quarter, introduced into circulation this month, the U.S. Virgin Islands Department of Tourism has unveiled a one-of-a-kind offer to generate exposure and entice visitors to the Territory.

The Cent-sational vacation package includes a nightly rate of just 25 cents at participating hotels, for a maximum stay of three nights; a $25 per person dining certificate; a $25 per person activities certificate; and a Virgin Islands commemorative quarter Scotiabank coin set. The Cent-sational package is valid for bookings made within the 25-day period of October 9 through November 2*, 2009 for travel between October 9 and November 15, 2009.

Hotels participating in the Cent-sational promotion include: Bolongo Bay Beach Resort, Carambola Beach Resort & Spa, Club St. Croix, Hibiscus Beach Resort, Hotel Caravelle, Marriott Frenchman's Reef & Morning Star Beach Resort, Point Pleasant Resort, Sapphire Beach Resort, Sapphire Village, Secret Harbour Beach Resort, The Palms at Pelican Cove, Windward Passage Hotel, and the Wyndham Sugar Bay Resort & Spa.

The Cent-sational package applies to new bookings only. Reservations must be made through

To maximize awareness and exposure for the destination in connection with this offer, the Department of Tourism's public relations team is aggressively pursuing media coverage in broadcast, print and online media outlets, and will also explore promotional opportunities that allow the Territory to reach additional potential visitors.

"The Cent-sational package underscores our commitment to find new ways to generate news and interest in travel to the Territory." said Commissioner Beverly Nicholson-Doty. "This offer is designed to break through the clutter and keep the U.S. Virgin Islands top-of-mind with potential visitors during the months of October and November."

Introduced at a ceremony hosted by Governor John P. de Jongh last week, the freshly minted U.S. Virgin Islands quarter is imprinted with some of the Territory's most treasured official symbols, including the Bananaquit bird, Yellow Cedar Flower and Tyre Palm Tree. Emblazoned with the U.S. Virgin Islands' official motto, "United in Pride and Hope," the quarter serves simultaneously as a reminder of the Territory's unique identity, as well as its proud inclusion as a U.S. Territory.
