TAT considers postponing registration for travel subsidy scheme


The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is looking at postponing the registration for the third phase of the “Rao Tiew Duay Kan” (We Travel Together) travel subsidy campaign, TAT Governor Yutthasak Supasorn said.

Registration for the campaign was scheduled to open on May 17. Under the scheme, Thai nationals over 18 years can register to receive a 40 per cent discount on hotel rooms and restaurants. They will also receive an e-voucher when checking into a hotel as well as a 40 per cent flight refund when they check out.

The subsidy is capped at 2 million room nights. Registrants must reserve the room at least 7 days in advance.

“The postponement is aimed at complying with measures announced by the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration to contain the spread of the virus by urging people to refrain from unnecessary interprovincial travel,” he said.

“TAT is monitoring the situation in various tourist provinces closely and will evaluate the suitable kick-off date again next week, after a discussion with Minister of Tourism and Sports Pipat Ratchakitprakarn,” the TAT governor said.
