40,000 $200 Regional Travel Rebates on $400 Travel Spend Available to Victorians

6136

From Friday at 10am, the Victorian government is offering 40,000 Victorians $200 'vouchers' to travel within Victoria between December 12 and January 22 as a stimulus for the tourism industry.

You have to spend over $400 on one of the following categories to get the $200 back:
- accommodation
- tours
- local attractions

Exclusions are gaming, alcohol (except if alcohol is included in wine/brewery/distillery tasting type tour but excludes any alcohol purchased and consumed outside of the experience), fuel, food and drinks (except where packaged with an eligible expense such as a winery tour), groceries, personal items such as clothing and accessories, transport costs (rental vehicles, train and bus tickets).

It's really a reimbursement from the government though – travellers have to apply for the voucher, pay for the travel upfront and then receive a reimbursement from the government.

Still, $200 back on your trip is still $200 back!

Another 40,000 vouchers will be available on January 20, and may be redeemed for travel from January 27 to April 1, and the final batch of vouchers will be released on March 30 for use from April 6 to May 31.

Update: An extra 30,000 regional tourism vouchers will be made available to Victorians at 12PM today. Sold Out

Round 2: 40,000 vouchers will be released from 20 January 2021, 10.00am for travel between 27 January 2021 to 1 April 2021. Sold Out

Round 3: 30 March 2021, 10.00am, for travel between 6 April 2021 to 31 May 2021

    Huzzah!! I beat the final boss. What an agonising 1hr40min.

  • Scored!

  • Will it be F5 on a resubmit on a mac?

    • +3

      Command R

      I think my "R" key is broken now :)

  • got to first page, then error

  • I still can't even get past the apply now page (Salesforce Unable to process request)

  • Same! MS edge worked for me, where as was having issues with chrome not saving the form.

  • Finally!!!

    Just keep hitting F5 and don't go back steps or start again….system will take you forward from where it left.

    Good luck all

    • Does it actully mean you got one though just because you submitted? I didn't really see anything saying you've been succesfull.

      • application submitted and acknowledgement received on site and email.

        Now waiting for it to be approved/reviewed…

        • +1

          So potentially they could receive way more than 40K?

  • Finally got through the final boss - anybody beat 1 hour 45 mins?

    So does submitting it mean that you got one?

  • Can't get past the last page with the F5 trick.

    • same!!

      • +1

        You have to go back and then resubmit.

        • Did you click the 'back' button that's on that error page? Or the browser back button?

          • @unco: Browser.

            • @takezo: Kept F5ing and got through to the Review page and now on to submitting. F5 smash!

  • apply button removed

    • Looking at the Javascript, that happens automatically after a certain number of clicks

  • still an agonising grind.. this reminds me of the last hours of rewards redemption on velocity lol

    • +1

      Reminds me of early days buying concert tickets

  • I'm on the last level. I've just been doing it in the background over the last 30 min.

    • I had a 60 min "passive" meeting. Pretty sure I'll be coming down with RSI next week.

  • wtf… DJPR registration password needs to be minimum 13 characters >_< fml

    also keeps looping when i try to register…

    • +1

      Just keep submitting - it will hopefully eventually get there. Only 3 more pages to go.

    • +1

      Use the Suggest and be done with it.

  • The questions are fantastically bad when they actually load.

  • 2 hrs later i finally got it. The last step makes you register or login with a DEPARTMENT OF JOBS, PRECINCTS AND REGIONS account.

  • I never got a confirmation but in my account section it shows my application was submitted.

    Go and check yours isn't submitted and you're refreshing for nothing.

  • Success! Make sure you download the form response PDF as proof.

  • no more apply now button

  • There's a "please confirm your answer" question below email. What is that question referring to?!?

    • Anyone willing to help?

      • What page?

    • it wants you to re-type your email address i think

  • OMFG I GOT KICKED BACK TO THE FIRST PAGE

    • REFRESH, don't use BACK.

    • Click on the grants. Should open the draft you were upto

  • I'm up to the review page at the end! Wish me luck submitting…

  • Finally. Lol - and they make it mandatory for a 13 character password.

    • Copy past lol

  • VICTORY!!!

    Used the F5 trick, took forever but got there

  • DONE! Got the PDF and the email confirming it. Phew!

  • Geez that took alot of refresh. Was stuck on the account creation loop. The system registers you account but doesn't tell you. Once you did that click on the grant application and it opens up the draft you been doing to continue onto the last step

    I thought we were supposed to upload our license or something? Didn't see anywhere to do this…

    • It asks for your licence number

    • There's definitely a page to confirm your identity.

    • Had to enter your driver licence, seniors card or proof or age number

    • Just number

  • Submission Success. Does anyone have an estimate of how many vouchers have been claimed already?

    • +1

      450,000

  • Finally Submitted…. Create your account https://businessvic.secure.force.com/

    then moment you land on page 1 - You will fill your basis detail and then save the form… Once you save the form you get unique link … Then you keep passing every stage after alot of errors… You will eventually be able to sumbit…

    • Unable to Process Request
      Concurrent requests limit exceeded.

      This is shitshow mate, honestly.

  • Has anyone succeeded with MacOS and Safari?

    • mac + chrome

  • How do you get past the first page when on a mac you have to confirm your acknowledgement of the registering of an account but there's no radio button?

  • I'm stuck at the register page. It doesn't give me any error but keeps asking me to enter password… Any idea how to pass this?

    • Just keep entering. Mine eventually took me to another page.

      • Cheers. Will try that

  • Did they take the Apply Now button away again?

  • +1

    Cant even get the apply now button anymore , what a clusterF I'm out

  • Anyone else stuck in a loop at the end? Pressing SAVE AND SUBMIT just keeps bringing up the same final review page without submitting. :(

    • Same.

      • yep

    • Yep

    • yeah same with me as well. SAVE and SUBMIT, reload bunch of times, repeat.

    • Me too - someone posted earlier than you need to click back for this part. Not sure if its the browser back or the message back - I'm too scared to do this in case I loose everything

      • I was too scared just to click "view as PDF" for my records, in case it didn't open in a new window and timed out the page.

        • I'm more traumatized of missing out on this lousy $200 deal than being in the Melbourne lockdown

      • For fun i clicked "save draft" - anyway, i've lost it all. And in my account it says "YOU HAVE NO OPEN ONLINE APPLICATIONS." how good
        "

  • FINALLY! I'VE JUST GOT TO THE END!!!

    guys, be patient, F5 is your friend, Google Chrome is your friend! Don't afraid of pressing F5 to refresh the page! You'll get there

    • what do you for the last page? save and submit? keep hitting f5 or back and then save and submit?

      • I'm stuck at same one, keeps going back and hitting save and submit. Will it progress eventually?

      • Yes, keep hitting F5 and then Save & Submit

        you'll need to be logged on already for that

        • how can you tell if you're logged in?

          Where do you create an account?

          • +1

            @Mega Vanillish: There's a step to create an account during the process, or you can create an account first using this link https://businessvic.secure.force.com/GrantsPortalRegister

            You can Register/Login using a different browser tab.

            after you get to the final step, keep Refresh and click "Save&Submit" till you get a confirmation

            • @mrdng: Thanks - I totally did not see any requirement to do that during the sign up process
