Holiday vouchers up for grabs

By Emily Harrison

In a bid to give the Queensland tourism industry a boost, the State Government and Brisbane Economic Development Agency are giving Queenslanders the chance to secure one of 30,000 vouchers to spend with local operators.

The vouchers, on offer via the Holiday Dollars Scheme, can be used to claim 50 percent of the total cost of accommodation or experiences up to the value of $100.

For a recipient to gain greatest value from the scheme (i.e. redeem full $100), the experience/accommodation will need to be $200 minimum.

An additional 6000 vouchers will be on offer for experiences in the Whitsundays up to the value of $200.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk says the Brisbane Holiday Dollars campaign will pump millions of dollars back into the economy and help tourism operators doing it tough.

“We’ve seen how successful this program has been in Cairns – supporting local businesses and local jobs at a time the industry needs it most,” she says.

“Today’s announcement will support local jobs and give Queenslanders an even bigger incentive to holiday at home and support their mates.”

Tourism Minister Stirling Hinchliffe says Holiday Dollars is one part of the Palaszczuk Government’s comprehensive $800 million tourism support strategy.

“The Palaszczuk Government is working shoulder to shoulder with Queensland tourism to help the industry rebuild and rebuild better for the future,” he says.
