In efforts to revive the state tourism industry which was adversely affected by the COVID-19 outbreak, the Perak government has introduced the #TravelPerakLah Voucher.
Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu said the voucher can be used by tourists to get discounts on selected hotels and tourism products throughout the state.
Also present was state Housing, Local Government and Tourism Committee chairman Datuk Nolee Ashilin Mohammed Radzi.
Ahmad Faizal said since the reopening of domestic tourism on June 10 until yesterday, 2,695 rooms from 58 hotels or 10 per cent hotels in Perak had been booked.
“Although the number is encouraging it still needs to be improved in order to help hotel operators in the state sustain and keep their staff,” he said.
Meanwhile, Nolee Ashilin said the validity period of the first phase of the voucher is from July 1 to Nov 30 and it can be redeemed after the second visit to any registered hotel or tourism spots.
- RM50 – Selected hotels / Accommodations
- RM30 – Selected Tourism Products
“If visitors book a hotel room at a minimum price of RM100, they will receive a voucher worth RM50 which can be used to stay at any other registered hotel or the same hotel during next visit,” she said.
Nolee Ashilin said for the moment, 25 hotels and 10 tourism products have registered with Tourism Perak for that purpose.
