The travel subsidy scheme will use a 9-billion-baht budget approved by the Cabinet in 2021 and will have a few different conditions from the previous phase, he said.
TAT is discussing the registration date with Krungthai Bank. Yuthasak expects the scheme to launch as early as February 1.
The new conditions for the fourth phase are:
People must register on www.เราเที่ยวด้วยกัน.com/ even if they had registered for previous phases.
The government will support 40 per cent of the accommodation cost, with each registrant being allowed to reserve up to 10 rooms, down from a total of 15 in the previous phase.
The number of airline reservations has also been decreased to 600,000 because the previous quota wasn’t used up, leaving plane seats empty.
The scheme will open in February and run to March 2022.
Travellers must reserve an accommodation seven days in advance.
Registrants can avail of:
A 40 per cent discount on accommodation at up to 3,000 baht per room per night (maximum 10 rooms or nights)
A 600 baht coupon per day, which can be used to buy meals or used at tourist attractions under the scheme. Travellers will need to pay 60 per cent of the fee while 40 per cent can be used under the coupon. Tourists will receive a coupon each day after they check in and it can be used after 5pm.
A 40 per cent discount on plane reservations with cash back of up to 3,000 baht per passenger (only for designated provinces). The limit is two seats per room for a total of 30 seats.
Travellers will receive 40 per cent cashback on plane tickets of up to 3,000 baht per passenger when they travel to Phuket, Phang-nga, Krabi, Surat Thani, Songkhla, Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai, or up to 2,000 baht per passenger if they visit other provinces by air.
To avail of airfare cashbacks, travellers must fill out a form at www.เราเที่ยวด้วยกัน.com/ after they check out of their hotel.
