Starting this Tuesday, January 2, Valencians who wish to do so (a registration certificate is required) will be able to request the 2024 Travel Voucher to tour the Valencian Community. This year’s edition covers two annual periods, from January 16 to June 3, excluding Easter, and the second period that begins on October 15 until December 22 and introduces important new features.
The main ones focus on the number of minimum overnight stays to enjoy the bonus, on the eligible amounts, as well as on the periods in which the program will remain active. Thus, trips will be made with a minimum of three nights, “because the intention is to promote consumption,” explained the Minister of Innovation, Industry, Commerce and Tourism, Nuria Montes. Regarding the eligible amounts, it has been established at a maximum of 50% of the reservation cost with a maximum amount of 350 euros. In the previous one it was 60% and up to 600 euros.
Montes explained that the 2024 Travel Bonus program aims to “favor deseasonalization and employment in the tourism sector”, and therefore some new features have been introduced with the aim of “reaching a greater number of beneficiaries”. Furthermore, he stressed that these developments “have been agreed upon with the entire tourism sector of the Valencian Community.”
The registration application will be submitted exclusively electronically at the electronic headquarters of the Generalitat, through the procedure created for this purpose. Information about these aids will be available on the website of the Comunitat Valenciana 2024 Travel Bonus program and access to the electronic office will be enabled for the registration request.
