As part of the recent Destination Canada and Destination Ontario collaborative domestic marketing agreement to support the Canadian tourism industry to recover from the negative impact of Covid-19, RTO12/Explorers’ Edge has been able to access limited funding specifically to promote “hyper local tourism” in our region.
To that end, RTO12’s “2021 Cottage Country Spirit Local Travel Package – Summer Fall Edition” will do this by providing some incentives for permanent and seasonal household residents ONLY in the Explorers’ Edge catchment (who in this document we sometimes call ‘local guests’) to book an experience (attractions, shops, restaurants, events) or overnight accommodation with you.
Specifically, the incentive refers to 5 x $10 Experience Vouchers to be used by the local guest “same as cash” and honoured by participating Accommodation and/or Experience Providers. Your customers get these $50 worth of Vouchers by registering for one of 2000 available packages (limited number of packages available) on the Explorers’ Edge website during the program promotion.
Each Voucher is a “one-time use” Voucher and may be used towards the cost of goods or services at participating Accommodation and/or Experience Providers locations between July 19, 2021 and September 30, 2021.
The program will launch online for consumers to register on July 2, 2021.
To participate in this program, please return this completed agreement to Erin Smit [email protected] at Explorers’ Edge no later than June 22, 2021.
*tourism operators may submit a contract to participate after this date, but to be included on the printed handout sent inside the package mailed to consumers we must have confirmation of your participation on or before June 22, 2021 at 9am. If you confirm your participation after this date, your business name and link will be included on the online pages only.
