New South Wales residents have received a final reminder they only have until Sunday to use free money on a hotel getaway or even theme parks.

Households are being reminded that they must use their Stay NSW and Parents NSW vouchers by October 9, after they were issued to boost the economy and local businesses in the wake of Covid lockdowns. 

Depending on the terms and conditions of a business, residents will be able to book past the expiry date as long as the business has redeemed your voucher by the deadline.

On Thursday, Minister for Customer Service and Digital Government Victor Dominello said: ‘Both programs have collectively added almost $350million to the NSW economy, with 97 per cent of customers giving them the thumbs up.

‘Don’t miss out. There is still time to redeem vouchers and reap the rewards these school holidays… Catch that movie you’ve been wanting to see with friends or take the kids to a museum or wildlife park. You’ll save money and be supporting businesses.’

Minister for Tourism Ben Franklin said: ‘The Stay NSW voucher has been a great incentive for NSW residents to explore the incredible cultural and natural wonders of our State while injecting a significant economic boost for local accommodation providers.’

There are currently more than $70million worth of Stay NSW vouchers that are yet to be redeemed. 

Each of the vouchers used provide support for accommodation venues which were impacted by the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic over the past few years.
