Orbitz Launches Campaign to End U.S. Travel Ban to Cuba

Online travel provider Orbitz recently launched the OpenCuba.org website to give travelers the opportunity to get directly involved in a grassroots effort to convince the Obama Administration and Congress to end the ban on travel to Cuba for those Americans who do not have immediate family members located on the island.

The site allows travelers to sign a petition calling for an end to the travel ban. Orbitz executives will formally present the petition to U.S. officials in Washington, DC later this year.

As an incentive to sign the online petition, every person who signs the petition will receive a $100 coupon redeemable on Orbitz against a vacation to Cuba valid if and when the U.S. Government removes the ban on travel to Cuba, and as soon as Orbitz is able to offer such travel on its website.

The Fort Myers News-Press today published a useful chronology of Cuba travel restrictions here.
