Sicily Is Offering To Pay Half Your Flight & Third Of Your Hotel To Visit


The Italian island of Sicily is offering to pay for half of your flight and a third of your hotel costs if you visit the island later this year. It is doing so in order to entice tourists to visit post-coronavirus and quarantine. They are also offering free tickets to many of its museums and archaeological sites.

Tourism makes up 13% of Italy's GDP and therefore Sicily has lost upwards of €1 billion or about $1.09 billion in revenue. Non-essential travel is currently banned in many countries across the world, and the reopening of these borders is still unclear. However, Italy is hoping tourists will come back once quarantine is over.

To get a voucher of your own, you need to visit the Visit Sicily website after the borders are reopened.
