Victorians snag 40,000 travel vouchers within 30 minutes

At the time, Business Victoria apologised to holidaymakers after tens of thousands of people were left disappointed as they were unable to apply for a voucher.

The site recorded 800,000 visits as people struggled to lodge their applications. More than 19,000 people applied for vouchers during the first allocation.

The state government says the vouchers are to be used to contribute to the costs of accommodation, tourism attractions or tours in regional Victoria, as well as the Yarra Ranges, Dandenong Ranges and the Mornington Peninsula.

Victorian residents who receive a voucher and spend at least $400 in those areas – whether it is on accommodation, tours or attractions during their stay – will be eligible to receive a reimbursement of $200, after presenting their receipts.

Those who received vouchers in Wednesday’s ballot must travel between January 27 and April 1 to claim the reimbursement.

The scheme is open to all Victorian residents over the age of 18. Only one voucher is permitted per household.

The next voucher round will open at 10am on March 30 at vic.gov.au/regional-travel-voucher-scheme.
