Attracting many tourists in this summer, Malta offers for foreign visitors a Gift voucher of up to 200 EUROs per night if they stay at least 3 days on the Medittanean Island.
Tourism Minister Clayton Bartolo announced the scheme on Friday, saying that with most COVID restrictions expected to be lifted by June 1, tourists booking summer holidays directly through local hotels would receive the handout.
World Travel and Tourism Council data show the tourist industry, directly and indirectly, accounts for more than 27% of Malta’s economy, but this is hammered by the COVID 19 pandemic. The country attracts more than 2.7 million foreign visitors in 2019 but figures have fallen by more than 80% since the virus was detected in March 2020.
- Bartolo said tourists booking accommodation at a five-star hotel will get 100 euros from Malta’s Tourism Authority, which will be matched by the hotel for a total of 200 euros.
- For a four-star hotel will receive a total of 150 euros.
- Those booking a three-star hotel will receive 100 euros.
- The grant grows by 10% when bookings are made with hotels on the smaller Maltese island of Gozo, three kilometers (two miles) north of the mainland.
The scheme is aimed at putting Malta’s hotels in a very competitive position as international tourism restarts,” Bartolo said.
Malta has the highest virus vaccination rate in the European Union, having given at least one dose to 42% of adults. It has seen a sharp drop in new COVID-19 cases, with the positivity rate – the percentage of tests that show a positive result – down to 2.6%, and the government has been urging the EU to introduce vaccine passports to facilitate travel. Bartolo said he was also having talks to encourage travel between Malta and Britain, whose inhabitants account for a third of tourists in the former British colony.
