Addressing a press conference with regards to a Tourism Recovery Plan, Tourism Minister Clayton Bartolo revealed that tourists could earn up to €200 if they book rooms at Maltese Hotels.

Bartolo announced the scheme today and will apply to what he called 35,000 “free, individual travellers’, who could earn €100 if they stay at a five-star hotel, €75 at a four-star hotel and €50 at a three-star hotel if the hotels participate in the scheme.

The amounts will be matched by the hotels themselves, which means the tourist will be entitled to double the aforementioned amount, with half from the government and half from the hotel, with those staying at Gozitan hotels benefitting from 10% more of the grants.

The Minister also revealed an agreement with close to 75 foreign operators such as VisitEurope, Chevron, On The Beach and more as part of a €20 million tourism recovery package.
