Dear friends and clients,
I would like to ring in the new year by publishing a unique and exclusive interview with me, Terrance Rey, done by master interviewer, Michael Senoff.
Michael Senoff is an experienced internet marketer and interview show host and a popular professional interviewer. Michael has taught 100% online around the country and around the world to more than 50,000 students, including me. His websites Hard To Find Seminars and Executive Audio Institute are listed in the top 1% most visited websites in the world. Michael Senoff has also worked as a coach and advisor to other famous marketing consultants.
I have had a number of advisors and mentors throughout my business career, but none as prolific and effective as Michael Senoff. He has been instrumental in helping me in my career as an internet marketeer and marketing consultant. When I agreed to let Michael interview me about my successful internet business and virtual airline concept called AirStMaarten, I had no idea the end-result would be this great. Thanks to a simple but effective trick Michael used on me, I was able to talk freely about my AirStMaarten business and how I manage to get my clients to St. Barths easily, without any stress and without any hassle.
The result is a great interview - even if I say so myself - all thanks to Michael's skills and talent as a master interviewer. You can listen to this interview online at www.howtogettostbarths.com.

This newsletter features the unique and exclusive interview made by Michael Senoff with me, Terrance Rey. Listen to this interview and learn how to travel to St. Barths like a star. You will learn how to get all the amenities of a private charter into St. Barths without incurring the high costs involved.
If you’ve ever flown into St. Barth before, you know the hassle it can be to get there. Standing in line at the airport, schlepping all your luggage behind you while you make your way through Customs only to find you’ve been bumped off your flight and you’ll have to wait… again.
Meanwhile, the people who can afford the high price of a chartered flight have an agent to take their luggage and passports through Immigration while they drink leisurely in a lounge and wait for an air-conditioned vehicle to take them straight to their plane.
By chartering these planes ahead of time, I’m able to give you all the amenities of the hassle-free, VIP charter service, without the price tag of having to charter the whole plane yourself. You only pay for the seat you occupy.
And in this interview I did with Michael Senoff from HardToFindSeminars.com, I explain how I’ve built years of trust with the main operators into St. Barths in order to get the kind of quality service that makes sure everything goes smoothly, every time.
In the interview, I also explain…
Most companies in the Caribbean don’t even pick up their phones. I always do. I’ve built my reputation on being the most reliable way to get into and out of St. Barths from St. Maarten. So if you’re a personal assistant, VIP concierge service, or just someone who wants to go to St. Barth in style and without stress, contact me. I’ll make sure your trip goes smoothly. I never say, “Sorry. I’m full,” even if it’s last minute. I always say: “Let’s see what your options are.”
ST. BARTHS MAKES EXCLUSIVITY WORK
ST BARTS – Johanna Jainchill, Travel Weekly’s destinations editor, was in St. Barts, exploring the island and staying in two hotels and one villa. Since this island is so close to our shores, we thought it interesting to share her experience with our readers. The concept of exclusivity versus mass tourism is food for thought for St. Maarten.
St. Barts carries a certain mystique, and a reputation, for being the most exclusive and upscale island in the Caribbean.
That description is fair, and for the most part, the prices match it. Even the rare budget hotel in the low season will run about $200 per night, while the fanciest properties’ entry-level room starts above $600.
During peak Christmas and New Year’s dates, those rates can more than triple. But that is also the season when celebrities and millionaires show up on their yachts and private jets. And St. Barts is open for business year-round.
So what exactly do people pay for here?
First of all, being a French island, the prices here are always in euros. For Americans, who make up the majority of travelers to St. Barts, this means that everything costs a lot more than it would in dollars.
While a $14 cocktail won’t give sticker shock to the average New Yorker, that’s $18 in euros. (Most places accept dollars so you won’t always incur a conversion fee).
But travelers are really paying for exclusivity. St Barts does a good job of limiting the number of tourists, and even people, on the island, with strict development limits. There are no high-rise hotels, no casinos, and St. Barts’ tiny airport only accommodates prop planes.
This allows for some of the Caribbean’s most pristine beaches, fronting clear, turquoise waters.
Scooters, Mini Cooper convertibles and Jeeps are the car rentals of choice, and visitors love exploring as many beaches on the island as they can. There seems to always be parking available, for free, and aside from the beaches closest to town, they are never crowded.
Then there’s the food. St Barts is an epicurean destination. Eating well is part of the experience here — one you will pay for, usually with pleasure.
French culture pervades much of the cooking, but some of the finest establishments are a fusion of Creole and French cuisines. And fresh seafood is always the centerpiece of any menu, with local catches of mahi-mahi, wahoo, shrimp and langouste on most menus.
If you enjoy the kind of travel where you won’t find Starbucks, McDonald’s and Kentucky Fried Chicken locations, St. Barts is for you. Fast food here consists of a creperie or getting a baguette sandwich at a boulangerie.
And it is possible to eat on a budget — the markets here have fine selections of French cheese and charcuterie, making a picnic at the beach with a baguette, cheese and a bottle of French wine a wonderful experience. In fact, French wines are one of the few bargains on the island, and there is impressive variety.
Finally, St. Barts is safe. After years of traveling around the Caribbean and living in New York, I was surprised to learn that people here leave their car windows open with iPads exposed on the seats. Nobody seems to worry about leaving belongings on the beach while swimming or taking a long stroll.
And while I don’t know if it’s by design or culture, but there is never anyone approaching tourists to sell trinkets or tours.
This all adds up to a unique and beautiful Caribbean destination, one that will not be enjoyed by all, which is exactly how both the locals and frequent visitors want it to stay.
