Voice of Travelers to Dominican Republic

Honeymoon trip to Virgin Islands via Dominican Republic

I am Eve from Guatemala. Last month, my boyfriend and I spent our honeymoon in the British Virgin Islands. We traveled to Dominican Republic by air, and boarded an Oceania Cruise to the Virgin Islands. We searched online for the cheapest ticket several weeks prior to our departure for Dominican Republic, and the cheapest air ticket to Dominican Republic was with Caribbean Airlines. One of the travel agents had advised us that tickets to Dominican Republic are cheapest six weeks before your travel time, and that it is advisable to purchase your ticket six weeks before traveling. As a couple traveling to Dominican Republic, the airline offered us a 5% discount on the ticket we bought. We booked the ticket to Virgin Islands in advance, and spent a day in Dominican Republic before departing for the Bahamas. The travel experience by air to Dominican Republic and the cruise to Virgin Islands were brilliant, the attendants were friendly and ready to help, and the food and drink satisfied everyone.

Retiring in Dominican Republic

I am Ryan, originally from Florida. I retired in Dominican Republic after working with the state for more than 25 years. Initially, I was searching for a good place when Dominican Republic popped into my head. I flew to to Dominican Republic last summer to search for a suitable house before relocating. I bought a ticket to Dominican Republic online after searching for the cheapest ticket on the internet. Purchasing the ticket online was cheaper compared to visiting the travel agents, who charged a commission for their ticket, making it more expensive than purchasing the ticket online. When purchasing a ticket to Dominican Republic, it is advisable to purchase your ticket weeks prior to your departure, as the ticket is cheaper during this period. Caribbean Airlines offered 5% off their ticket, and furthermore contacted FedEX on my behalf for cargo purposes. As a result, FedEx charged a lower ticket price to relocate my goods to Dominican Republic.
