Poland could give citizens money for domestic travel

I thought I'd share a short article I stumbled across while surfing the internet. It explains the interesting idea proposed in Poland to "jump start" their domestic tourism industry, as international travel is sure to be on hold for the foreseeable future - https://www.travelweekly.com/Europe-Travel/Poland-could-give-citizens-money-for-domestic-travel

"Poland’s Ministry of Development and the Polish Tourist Organization are considering vouchers worth 1,000 zloty (about $238) available to the general public. According to a Ministry of Development spokesperson, the proposed “1000 Plus Program” would be designed to buoy the Polish tourism industry, including “tourism organizers, tourism agents and other providers of tourist services.”

"Under the initiative, citizens could redeem vouchers for leisure trips and activities, including exhibitions and cultural, entertainment, recreational, sporting or outdoor events."

What a creative idea!

… said with a simultaneous sigh of sadness over my own travels in Poland in September. Here's hoping to reschedule to 2021!

I like the idea in the link very much! Thanks for sharing.

...written as I too start to slowly release my grasp on the idea that I will be in Poland this September. But... I think I'm going to aim for a bigger, longer trip in 2021! Or 2022. Something like a 25-day trip instead of the 14 I had planned for this year.

No where does it say the part in Bold in the article. Both Romania and Slovakia did the same thing pre-COVID.

Now that sounds like a spectacular idea, Dave! My own trip was planned for 21 days. I might try to stretch it out a few more days as well.
