Helping more seniors explore Victoria

Having a holiday just got easier for older Victorians with a further 10,000 vouchers awarded as part of the popular Seniors Travel Voucher scheme.

The vouchers will be distributed to eligible seniors who have previously applied through the ballot – creating more opportunities to travel and enjoy all Victoria has to offer.

The Victorian and Seniors Travel Voucher Scheme provides vouchers to encourage people to travel around Victoria. The eligible travel period for the vouchers commenced on Friday, 8 April 2022, and will run through until Friday, 27 May 2022. Vouchers can be used for accommodation, tours and experiences across the state.

Previous rounds of the Travel Voucher Scheme generated significant economic benefits, with more than $159 million already spent on travel and activities in Victoria.

The $60 million Victorian Dining and Entertainment Program allows Victorians to claim 25 per cent rebates when they spend at least $40 on entertainment any day of the week, anywhere in the state. The rebate can also be claimed for meals from Monday to Thursday anywhere in Victoria except the City of Melbourne municipality.

Since the program launched, there have been more than 83,000 successful claims for dining and 47,000 successful claims for entertainment.
