Final reminder to use your Stay NSW and Parents NSW vouchers
Households are being urged to use any remaining Stay NSW and Parents NSW vouchers, with the 9 October deadline only days away.
Minister for Customer Service and Digital Government Victor Dominello said the vouchers have boosted family budgets and provided local businesses with much needed stimulus.
“Both programs have collectively added almost $350 million to the NSW economy, with 97 per cent of customers giving them the thumbs up,” Mr Dominello said.
“Don’t miss out. There is still time to redeem vouchers and reap the rewards these school holidays. Catch that movie you’ve been wanting to see with friends or take the kids to a museum or wildlife park. You’ll save money and be supporting businesses.
“Subject to the business’s terms and conditions, your booking date can be past the expiry date of the voucher, but you must ensure the business has redeemed your voucher by 9 October."
“The programs have been an overwhelming success and I would like to sincerely thank participating providers for your support and involvement.”
Minister for Tourism Ben Franklin said the initiative has provided significant support to NSW residents and accommodation providers.
“The Stay NSW voucher has been a great incentive for NSW residents to explore the incredible cultural and natural wonders of our State while injecting a significant economic boost for local accommodation providers,” Mr Franklin said.
“The NSW Government is committed to supporting our accommodation providers, and I encourage all NSW residents to take advantage of this fantastic program and book a staycation or holiday using the Stay NSW vouchers today.”
There are around $72.5 million worth of Stay NSW vouchers issued, pending redemption, to date.
These vouchers help support accommodation providers in NSW impacted by COVID-19. NSW residents aged 18 and older can apply for one $50 voucher to use towards the cost of accommodation bookings.
There are around $54 million worth of Parents NSW vouchers issued, pending redemption, to date.
One person from each eligible household can apply for five $50 vouchers, worth $250 in total.
NSW Government Vouchers are non-transferable and can only be redeemed by the customer who was issued the voucher. They cannot be used as a gift or donation to a registered business and cannot be exchanged for cash or gift vouchers.
