Victorians Can Get $200 Travel Vouchers Soon, But They’re First-Come, First-Serve

Victorians are getting even more incentive to get out and about and explore all parts of their state, all while boosting the state’s economy post-pandemic. The Victorian government is issuing another 140,000 Victorians with $200 vouchers they can use as money off on travel experiences.

The rebates, part of a $30 million travel scheme part of the state’s Business Stimulus Package, will be available from Wednesday, March 23 at 2pm on a first-come, first-serve basis and do come with some T&Cs.

Victorians will need to stay two nights in paid accommodation in the state, and spend at least $400 on accommodation, tours and experiences between April 2 and May 27.

But while everyone else has to wait until March 23 for the vouchers, Victorians who have a Seniors Card or Seniors Business Discount Card can register for theirs online from now (Tuesday, March 14). The vouchers will be handed out to 10,000 people in a random ballot.

Victorians can apply for the $200 off travel vouchers here.

The $200 travel vouchers come after NSW has been releasing its own vouchers, to boost specific sectors of the economy. The NSW government is handing out $250 ‘thank you’ vouchers to NSW parents to spend on dining and accommodation, $500 off before and after school care for every primary school-aged child, $50 ‘stay and rediscover’ vouchers and a total of five Dine and Discover vouchers, which can be used on eligible eateries and entertainment venues across the state until June 2022.

“We know that Dine & Discover vouchers had an incredibly successful and incredibly positive use by close to 5 million people across our state, so today we are doubling down to make additional $25 vouchers,” the NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet had said when the fifth $25 voucher was released.

“We know these vouchers have injected millions of dollars into the New South Wales economy. They’ve been incredibly successful and popular from Ballina to Balmain, from Byron to Broken Hill. People right across the state have gone out and used these vouchers and importantly spent more.”
