Traveling to Bermuda this June? Then you’ll be pleased to know about the Preferred Visitors Card from bermuda.com, otherwise known as the PVC. Its unfortunate plumbing-inspired acronym aside, the card—which can be purchased for just $15 on bermuda.com—will provide the holder a slew of discounts and freebies good from June 15 through June 30. A full list of what’s offered can be found here, but in the meantime here are a few deals to whet your appetite: Free golf club rentals at Tucker’s Point, Belmont Hills, Mid-Ocean and Port Royal golf courses (up to a $20 value for one round); certified one-tank SCUBA dives with Fantasea Bermuda for $99 (normally $150); 10% off your bill at Henry VIII (currently my favorite spot in Southampton for traditional Bermuda fish chowder and expertly prepared sushi, although not necessarily in that order); $5, 20-ounce pints of locally brewed Dockyard Brewing Company beer at the Frog & Onion Pub (try the Trunk Island Pale Ale or the Black Anchor Porter); and 10% scooter rentals from Oleander Cycles (which has locations island-wide). Remember, the card is only $15—so if you’re planning on hitting the links or exploring popular island attractions this June, it’s definitely worth the spend. To purchase the card visit bermuda.com—but from now on, let's call it the Bermuda Card, shall we?
