We’re halfway through the year and honestly, we all deserve a holiday for making it this far. But if your bank balance is looking a little low or you just needed a sign from the universe that now is the time to book that trip—then this is it!
Travel experience company Travello is giving Aussie tourism businesses a much needed $30 million boost, slinging more than 600,000 $50 vouchers as part of its Holiday Cash Giveaway tourism stimulus initiative to encourage people to support local tourism operators.
The campaign is focused on youth travellers (so people in the 18-35 age bracket) and will allow wanderlust seekers to choose from over 1000 travel experiences from around the country including skydives, hot air balloon rides, food and wine tours and bridge climbs. Some of our faves include adventures like diving with Whale Sharks in Ningaloo Reef Western Australia, tours of Kakadu National Park and scenic flights over Australian icons like the Barrier Reef and Uluru. Yep we’re talking bucket list-worthy trips.
“With borders closed and stop-start lockdowns interrupting business, tourism operators are doing it tough. The lack of international tourists and the Australian tendency to ‘fly and flop’, rather than jump on tours and activities, has made recovery difficult for the local tourism industry. Further to that, the recent Federal Budget did little to help smaller operators and many are now very close to closing down and have very little voice in the recovery discussion. The Holiday Cash Giveaway is our contribution to change that”, says Travello CEO and co-founder Ryan Hanly.
The good news is Travello is covering the entire cost of the voucher scheme, so that participating tourism operators can gain maximum benefit from the campaign. Aussies will have one month from today to book their experience, but the best part is there are no restrictions on when you can travel.
