Online registration is now open for Thai nationals to apply for discounts on domestic trips under the government’s “We Travel Together” campaign.
The scheme, which runs until Oct 31., offers discounts on hotel rooms, air tickets and digital vouchers for as much as 3,000 baht off on a five- night stay.
Eligible buyers will receive the discounts for tourist facilities in any province except for their own.
Under the program aimed at boosting local tourism, the government will subsidize 5 million hotel nights allowing for 40 percent discounts, limited to 3,000 baht per night.
Each hotel guest can also book two airline tickets at a 40 discount, limited to 1,000 baht per seat. The subsidies will be given for two million air tickets.
Travelers have to purchase the air tickets first and the government will pay them back later via the Krung Thai Bank Pao Tung mobile app.
Each eligible tourist will also get an e-voucher worth 600 baht per day upon check-in. They can use the vouchers to pay for food and service at restaurants or tourism attractions.
