Island Destinations and IDx, both part of ID Travel Group, have unveiled over 75 Exclusive Extras for 2018 through the 2018 Ultimate Exclusives Brochure and the 2018-2019 IDX Collection. The ID Ultimate Exclusives offer savings up to $8,000 from top hotels, while the 2018-19 IDX Collection showcases the brand’s selection of full-service resorts with Xclusive Xtras. The brochures highlight specials across top destinations from each portfolio, including the Maldives, Hawaii and the Turks and Caicos - all personally evaluated by the ID Travel Group.
