Air Passenger Duty from UK to Caribbean to be reduced

Good news if you’re planning to visit the Caribbean from the UK – from next year, Air Passenger Duty (APD) is going to be a little lower.

In his Budget 2014 speech, British Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne announced that bands C and D of APD are going to be removed from April 2015, meaning that APD on long-haul flights will be charged at the same rate as a trip to the US. This represents a saving of £14 per person, or £56 for a family of four.

While this is not a huge saving, Marigot Beach Club feels it’s a step in the right direction and hopefully one that will encourage more tourism to the Caribbean from the UK.
