Is your name Lucy or Lucia? Then you could win a trip to St Lucia with Virgin Holidays

Ahead of International Women’s Day on Friday 8 March, Virgin Holidays is shining a light on St Lucia – the only place in the world to be named after a woman, Saint Lucie – by giving its namesakes across the UK a free chance to visit.



Virgin Holidays travel consultants Lucy Messina (age 31), Lucy Hudson (age 31) and Lucy McManus (age 23) in their namesake country, St Lucia, to launch the campaign ahead of International WomenÕs Day.

New research* commissioned by One Poll reveals that two thirds of British women struggle to take holidays, due to the pressures of balancing work and family life.  

Furthermore, only  5% of Brits can recall the only country named after a woman, compared to more than double the amount who can name at least one of the 23 countries named after a man.

Virgin Holidays travel consultants Lucy Messina (age 31), Lucy Hudson (age 31) and Lucy McManus (age 23) in their namesake country, St Lucia, to launch the campaign ahead of International WomenÕs Day.

To kick off the St Lucia and International Women’ celebrations, three Virgin Holidays travel consultants who share their namesake with the nation, Lucy Messina, Lucy McManus and Lucy Hudson, travelled to St Lucia to check the island out for themselves.

Lucy Hudson, Virgin Holidays Travel Consultant, said:

“Saint Lucia is such an incredible country with beautiful scenary and beautiful people. I’m so proud to be able to claim the same name an link to the only nation it the world named after a woman – and now Lucys all over the UK have the chance to experience it too.”

Joe Thompson, Managing Director of Virgin Holidays, added:

“We wanted to celebrate St Lucia’s place in the world – the one country named after a woman – by empowering St Lucie’s namesakes, Lucys and Lucias across the UK, with the opportunity to visit this tropical island paradise. We believe that everyone can take on the world and this International Women’s Day – we want to focus on the females who are doing just that.”

St Lucia was named by French explorers who discovered the island in the Caribbean sea, and named it after St Lucy of Syracuse who was a Christian martyr, who died via persecution of the Roman Empire in 304AD.

St Lucia’s female roots continue to ring true as women shape the destination it is today. The nation boasts the third highest number of female bosses per capita in the world with over 50% of management roles held by women**.

Tiffany Howard, acting CEO of the Saint Lucia Tourism Authority, said:

“We commend everyone’s contribution to the growth and success of travel and tourism in Saint Lucia. On International Women’s Day, we celebrate the efforts and achievements of women in particular.  It’s an opportunity to pay tribute to the thousands of women in Saint Lucia, and the millions across the world who make a positive difference.”

The ability to win a free flight is available between March 7 – March 11 and is eligible for anyone in Britain with the name “Lucy” or “Lucia” on their passport.  To enter, and to read full terms and conditions, visit
