Eligible accommodation providers in Ku-ring-gai can now register to take part in two of the NSW Government’s new voucher programs – Parents NSW and Stay NSW.

Both programs will be implemented using the existing Dine & Discover NSW infrastructure.

Member for Ku-ring-gai Alister Henskens SC MP said families will be able to access the Parents NSW vouchers and Stay NSW vouchers from February.

“This stimulus is just what local families and businesses need with school holidays concluded. Parents across the community have made huge sacrifices during the pandemic and we want to say thank you to all of them,” Mr Henskens said.

“Eligible customers will soon be able to redeem their $250 worth of Parents NSW vouchers and $50 Stay NSW voucher with registered Stay NSW businesses, which is a huge win for the accommodation and tourism sectors which have been especially hard hit by the pandemic.

Mr Henskens said with vouchers to be issued to residents soon, local businesses should get ready to boost their income by registering for both programs.

“To take part in the two programs, businesses only have to register once through Service NSW. Once approved, all accommodation providers need to do is simply download the Service NSW for Business app and start scanning vouchers,” Mr Henskens said.

“Whether you’re a hotel, motel or a holiday park, we want you to take advantage of this stimulus and see more customers come through your doors.”

Businesses will be paid within ten days after redeeming a voucher.

Customers can pool multiple Stay NSW vouchers with friends or family for the same booking at registered accommodation providers, big or small. Parents NSW vouchers can be combined and used to redeem $250 off your accommodation account.

Bookings made through third party providers such as online booking platforms and travel agents are not included in the program.

Participating businesses will be able to redeem vouchers seven days a week, including public holidays. Customers will be able to search for participating accommodation providers on the easy-to-use hotel finder.

Discover NSW registered businesses do not have to re-register to accept Parents NSW vouchers, but can still register if they have yet to do so.
