Malta has launched a pioneering new incentive for enticing visitors during the pandemic. The incentive is geared towards effectively giving cash to visitors when they book hotels. The Malta Tourism Authority has pledged to pay tourists to visit its islands this summer.
This fantastic plan, which runs from June 2021, offers independent travelers (not applicable for tour operator bookings) up to €200 if they stay more than two nights on the island.
Malta’s tourism minister Clayton Bartolo said that “the scheme is aimed at putting Malta’s hotels in a very competitive position as international tourism restarts”. Unfortunately the destination is not yet on the UK government’s “green list” for holidays.
The Malta Tourism Authority will give away a sum to every visitor who books at least a three-night stay directly with a range of three- to five-star hotels.
People staying at a five-star property will earn €100 per person on every booking, while guests at four-star hotels will receive €75. Three-star travelers will have €50 to spend. The amounts will be matched by the hotels, doubling them at every level, so that visitors can earn up to €200 for their three-night stay at a five-star hotel in due course.
