Premier Daniel Andrews has promised $465 million in this year's budget, to encourage more visitors to regional Victoria as part of the Victorian Tourism Recovery Package.
Victorians who have booked and spent at least $400 dollars on accommodation or tickets to attractions and tours can apply for a $200 voucher for spending money.
120,000 vouchers will be made available from December.
"There'll be quite a simple process to make sure that you can validate that you had an experience and then you will receive the $200 from us," Mr Andrews said.
Voucher system still being worked out
Regional Victorians will also be eligible for vouchers for region to region travel but Tourism Minister Martin Pakula said the details of the voucher system were still being worked out.
"Whether it is upfront or by reimbursement is part of the design," Mr Pakula said.
"I make the point that similar schemes are already in place in South Australia and Tasmania
"In other states, there is a voucher that is printed out, and then people get a refund at the end once they have acquitted that they have spent that money."
Mod: As per guidelines, insufficient details for upcoming deals. Most importantly a dedicated start date is missing ("From December"), also specific details are yet to be finalised ("details of the voucher system were still being worked out"). Moved to forum to retain discussion. It may be posted as a deal when it starts or a specific details and start date are announced. Also a reminder that targeting specific users in posts is not appropriate.
