New Travel Vouchers Set To Bolster Victorian Tourism
The popular Victorian Travel Voucher Scheme returns tomorrow, with 140,000 vouchers up for grabs.
Minister for Tourism, Sport and Major Events Martin Pakula today confirmed that the fourth round of the scheme will go live at 2:00pm, Wednesday 23 March. Vouchers will be issued on a first come first served basis.
The Victorian Travel Voucher Scheme – funded by the Andrews Labor Government – provides successful applicants with a $200 reimbursement when expenses of more than $400 are incurred across accommodation, attraction and experiences.
Vouchers are limited to one per household. To be eligible, travellers must stay in paid accommodation including hotels, motels, serviced apartments, caravan parks and campsites for a minimum of two consecutive nights.
Those that secure a voucher can claim expenses incurred during the program travel period of 8 April and 27 May 2022.
The 140,000 vouchers to be released are in addition to the 10,000 travel vouchers made available exclusively to eligible seniors via a ballot last week, with 34,047 eligible applications made.
To date, more than $159 million has been spent under the Victorian travel voucher program on accommodation, tours and experiences across the state.
