A FOURTH round of travel vouchers will be available soon in an effort to boost regional tourism.
The scheme has proved popular so far, with vouchers usually being swept up within moments of their release.
The latest round of vouchers will be valued at $200 each. Around 80,000 are expected to be released.
Tourism minister Martin Pakula said “travel vouchers provide a terrific incentive for Victorians to explore their own backyard and we know from recent experience that they will be popular.”
Acting Premier James Merlino said “the effort to combat this outbreak makes a call on all of us – and we know that means a significant pause in the steady recovery being experienced in our tourism sector, especially across regional Victoria. We have backed business with announcements over the past seven days and today we’re showing regional tourism businesses and their workers that we understand the pressures they face.”
A release date for the next round of vouchers is yet to be confirmed.
