How and where you can claim your $200 travel voucher
They were gone in less than an hour. Victorians, now is your second chance to score $200 towards your next regional getaway.
Victoria’s second round of travel vouchers will be made available from 10am today from this link.
40,000 were released in December as a way of encouraging regional tourism that has suffered devastating losses due to the coronavirus pandemic.
But like before, there are some conditions for those interested in applying.

“We’re not handing out $200 upfront, there’s got to be some appropriate rigour in this for the state,” Tourism Minister Martin Pakula said in December.
The giveaway is only applicable to Victorian adults, provided they spend at least $400 on accommodation, attractions, or tours in the state’s regional areas.
Vouchers are limited to one per household and can be redeemed after you have travelled any time between January 27 to April 1.
You can apply for the voucher if you already have your accommodation booked and you have to have spent at least two nights in paid accommodation in regional Victoria to qualify.
Those who have already claimed a voucher in the first round in December are unable to apply for this or any future rounds. A third one is scheduled for March 30.
What the vouchers don’t cover
Alcohol (unless it is included in a wine or beer-type tasting tour).
Food and drinks (except when part of an eligible expense like a winery tour).
