Second round of travel vouchers receives overwhelming support from Tasmanians

Peter Gutwein,Premier & Minister for Tourism

Once again we’ve seen incredible demand for the second round of Make Yourself at Home travel vouchers, which opened for registrations at 7pm tonight.

Around 35,000 people or about one in 15 Tasmanians logged on to register for a voucher, and we thank Tasmanians for their patience as the website and phone lines dealt with the significant demand.

The second round of registrations have now closed having been fully subscribed. Online registrations were fully subscribed in just over an hour and the phone lines are now also closed.

I know Tasmanians who missed out will be disappointed, but this initiative is about supporting our tourism and hospitality industry and it’s been welcomed by Tasmanians in droves. I want to thank Tasmanians for continuing to embrace this initiative, which is backing our tourism industry while helping Tasmanians to explore more of their own backyard.

For those Tasmanians who did miss out, I’d urge you all to still get out and support the industry if you are able.
