VACATION RENTAL ST LUCIA Business Code of Conduct
As a top tier website in the Vacation Rentals and Holiday Homes business, VACATION RENTAL ST LUCIA sets high ethical standards for business conduct. We also apply these standards to ourselves, Volunteers and our Business Partners.

The VACATION RENTAL ST LUCIA Business Code of Ethics (the “Code”) helps ensure that VACATION RENTAL ST LUCIA Business Partners etc share our commitment to the travel and leisure industry.

For the purposes of this Code, “VACATION RENTAL ST LUCIA” refers to any VRLucia, and any other VACATION RENTAL ST LUCIA-affiliated entity.

“Business Partners” refers to suppliers that contract to provide VACATION RENTAL ST LUCIA with any product or service and other organizations that contract with VACATION RENTAL ST LUCIA to accomplish its mission, and includes the employees, agents and contractors of Business Partners.

“Business Partners” does not include VACATION RENTAL ST LUCIA Accredited Businesses or VACATION RENTAL ST LUCIA National Partners unless they form a contractual relationship with VACATION RENTAL ST LUCIA beyond their accreditation by VACATION RENTAL ST LUCIA or membership in VACATION RENTAL ST LUCIA.

VACATION RENTAL ST LUCIA expects that Business Partners will conduct their business with or on behalf of VACATION RENTAL ST LUCIA in compliance with the Code.

As appropriate, preference will be given to Business Partners that demonstrate greater commitment to this Code and ethical standards generally.
