The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) announced their plea to grant a budget of 13.2 billion baht for the fourth phase of the “Rao Tiew Duay Kan” (We Travel Together) stimulus scheme from the National Economic and Social Development Council.

Under the proposed scheme, registrants can receive a 40 percent discount on hotel rooms and restaurants. In addition, they’re going to also receive an e-voucher when checking to instill a 40 percent discount on the flight once they try. This may maintain the positive momentum for the domestic travel market amid weaker international tourist numbers.

TAT governor Yuthasak Supasorn said on Thursday, “We hope the new phase of Rao Tiew Duay Kan will help the domestic tourism industry get over the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and boost overall tourism revenue,” “The fourth phase of Rao Tiew Duay Kan should be open for registration by February 1.”

The scheme’s third phase, which commenced on January 4, saw quite 630,000 registrants who booked over 2 million room nights at some 4,321 hotels and spent a complete 8.6 billion baht.

Meanwhile, Yuthasak said on Friday that he will propose the reopening of more islands under the sandbox scheme to draw in foreign travelers now that the Test & Go scheme has been suspended.

The sandbox scheme allows vaccinated travelers who test negative for Covid-19 are going to be allowed to travel on sealed routes to choose places without having to quarantine.
