Registration opens Jul 15 for Thai nationals.
On Jul 15, the Thai government will launch a stimulus package to boost domestic tourism. Thai nationals with a Krung Thai Bank account will be able to claim subsidies and rebates on travel and accommodation. Claimants will receive 40 percent off room rates (capped at B3,000/night for up to five nights) when staying at registered hotels outside of their home province, while subsidies for other services, including food, will be capped at B600 per room per night. On top of this, registered passengers can claim back up to 40 percent of their air fare, or B1,000 per seat. Participating hotels, attractions and restaurants are listed on the Agoda app and the scheme’s “We Travel Together” website, where the public can register as of Jul 15. The scheme will run until Oct 21, 2020.
