VICTORIANS have the chance to snap up one of 150,000 travel vouchers, with the popular scheme returning as part of a $200 million business stimulus package to support local businesses and jobs.

Acting Minister for Tourism, Sport and Major Events Mary-Anne Thomas confirmed an initial 10,000 vouchers were made available exclusively to seniors from yesterday, Tuesday, March 15. A valid Seniors Card is required. A further 140,000 vouchers will open to everyone else on Wednesday, March 23.

The Seniors Travel Voucher Scheme will provide a $200 reimbursement to eligible seniors who spend $400 or more on paid accommodation, tours and experiences.

The Victorian Travel Voucher Scheme will open eight days later on Wednesday, March 23.

The 140,000 vouchers will be offered on a first-come-first-served basis and will close once the allocation has been exhausted.

Successful applicants must spend a minimum of $400 and stay for at least two nights in paid accommodation such as hotels and motels, serviced apartments, caravan parks, camping sites, farm stays and private holiday rentals.

Vouchers will be valid for travel between April 8 and May 27.

The Victorian and Seniors Travel Voucher Schemes expand on previous rounds of Melbourne and regional travel vouchers. More than $159 million has been spent on accommodation, tours and experiences across the state to date.

“We want people to explore our great state and provide a boost to tourism businesses as the sector continues its recovery from the impact of the pandemic.”
