As a means to help restart the tourism industry after months of lack of economic activity, the Government of the Czech Republic will be delivering 30,000 vouchers worth 2,000 CZK each.
Until the end of March 2022, vouchers will be available to those spending at least six nights and having five procedures at a spa hotel. The COVID – Lázně program was approved on Monday by the government, Hospodářské noviny reported on Thursday.
People are required to register online to receive the e-vouchers worth about 2,000 CZK per person for accommodation payment.
Each person can generate a voucher on the website, and get a unique code. The guest will receive a discount immediately and see it directly in the invoice.
Guests can print the vouchers from the beginning of July on Kudyznudy.cz portal. Only adults who pay for public insurance are entitled to use the voucher.
About 60 Czech resorts participate in this project.
Tourist industry experts warn that domestic tourism alone cannot keep the sector going.
“There will be some assistance from [domestic tourism] for the hotels, but our estimates say that it will cover only about 30 to 35 percent of what foreigners would spend in the Czech Republic,” said Tomas Prouza, president of the Confederation of Trade and Tourism.
