There is expected to be a rush when the NT Government's $200 tourism vouchers become available on Wednesday.
The vouchers are intended to support local tourism businesses until borders are re-opened to interstate visitors.
More than 26,000 vouchers worth $200 will be available from Wednesday, Territory Day, for Territorians to put towards a tourism experience, tour, accommodation, hire car or recreational fishing charter, so long as they match the spend with their own money.
Adults can combine their vouchers to increase the overall value, they will need their own email addresses.
There is a registration form located at territoryvoucher.nt.gov.au. You'll need to provide your name, a valid email address, your residential street address and agree to the terms and conditions. You may be required to show photo ID. when redeeming your voucher.
The $5.2 million voucher initiative is supported by a marketing campaign 'Never have I ever...' encouraging Territorians to book a local tourism experience they have never got around to enjoying for themselves.
From July 1, Territorians aged 18 years and over will be able to register and redeem their Territory Tourism Voucher here.
Voucher holders will then be able to book their chosen tourism experience online, over the phone or in person through their local Visitor Information Centres in Katherine, Darwin, Tennant Creek and Alice Springs.
Katherine Visitor Information Centre's contact details are 1800 653 142 or 8972 2650. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The vouchers must be used on a "bookable product" available through these centres.
Hospitality venues will also be able to benefit from the vouchers by packaging their offerings with a tourism product such as a 'Stay and Meal' deal.
This will encourage hospitality businesses to create partnerships with tourism and accommodation operators, creating long-term benefits for both.
Vouchers are valid for 30 days, with bookings and travel to be completed by October 31, 2020.
Chief Minister Michael Gunner said: "We are doing whatever it takes to protect as many jobs as possible through the coronavirus crisis.
"The Territory is the safest place in Australia because Territorians have been the best during this crisis. Being the best also means supporting Territory businesses.
"Our tourism and hospitality industries have been hardest hit by the coronavirus. The Territory Tourism Voucher will give them the boost they need ahead of our borders re-opening.
"Given our success in crushing corona, I'm confident we can ease border restrictions sooner rather than later. Until then, it's up to us locals to be the Territory's tourists.
"Explore our backyard, buy local and back locals - before the tourists arrive. This will give local operators the support they need and help them prepare to welcome tourists from interstate once it's safe to do so."
