The Bermuda government offers a personalized Bermuda miniguidebook for potential visitors. Within minutes of hanging up the phone, Internet-connected 800/BERMUDA [237-6832] callers in the U.S. or Canada receive a personalized "weblet" that gives specific, detailed information on hotels and activities based on information supplied by the caller. Your weblet's search engines allow you to supply personal criteria and receive a selection of hotels and restaurants designed to appeal to your taste and pocketbook. Special-interest buttons can be pressed for data on golf, honeymoon packages, nightlife, and sports facilities. U.K. residents should call tel. 0800/883-0857 to use this service, and residents of other countries will need to consult a travel agent in their particular area.
