Holiday vouchers opening soon


The next round of the Tasmanian Government's wildly popular holiday-at-home vouchers will go on offer on Thursday in its latest bid to stimulate the state's pandemic-hit visitor economy.

Following complaints the previous voucher distributions, conducted on a first-come-first served basis, were unfair, they'll be going out via a ballot system.

Up to $7.5 million worth of vouchers will have to be spent on local destinations and attractions by September 24, the start of school holidays.

Tasmanians will be able to register interest online from tomorrow, with a phone hotline option for those with limited internet access.

"Experiences could include packaged food and wine tours at producers’ venues, coach and small group day tours or even rental car hire," said Premier Peter Gutwein. 

"The last round of vouchers generated an estimated $27.5 million in additional spending in the State, supporting countless businesses and providing significant flow on benefit to hospitality businesses and regional economies."
