NB:  IslandStays only works with established Tour Operators who book and issue all our air tickets, transfers and resort accommodation.  We do not issue air tickets alone as our business model is designed to avoid all the complex rules, penalties and securities required to issue air tickets.  The benefit to you is that our product is simple and easy to sell and process.  No risk involved.

Process

  • You must promote your services and handle all of your sales - generated via your own quotes and bookings.
