The summer holidays just got even better for NSW residents, with two additional $25 Dine & Discover vouchers rolling out for eligible customers from today.

Cabinet Secretary, the Hon. Natasha Maclaren-Jones MLC said the NSW Government’s $250 million program expansion, announced as part of the $2.8 billion economic recovery package, means new applicants will receive three Dine NSW and three Discover NSW vouchers, while existing customers would receive one of each.

“Whether it’s going out for dinner, catching a live show or visiting a wildlife park, we’re helping more and more people explore our great backyard while supporting businesses who have done it tough this year,” Mrs Maclaren-Jones said.

“The additional vouchers will help NSW businesses grow and thrive this summer, while encouraging people to support their local cafes and restaurants.”

More than 15,000 businesses and 4.8 million customers have registered for the Dine & Discover NSW program, with almost $276 million vouchers used so far.

“The two new $25 vouchers will ensure we end 2021 with a bang and provide a much needed boost for businesses right across New South Wales as we head into a revitalised 2022,” MP said.

Mrs Maclaren-Jones said accessing the new vouchers would be simple and available in the palm of your hand.

“We have made receiving vouchers for individuals even easier, with the additional vouchers appearing automatically in the Service NSW app, via SMS or email for existing digital customers,” Mrs Maclaren-Jones said.

“Dine & Discover NSW vouchers will start appearing from today in the Service NSW app with all delivered by early December. Current digital customers do not need to reapply to receive the extra vouchers.”

Customers who don’t have access to digital vouchers can opt into a new call and collect delivery method. All customers need to do is to call Service NSW on 13 77 88 from 3 December, nominate their nearest Service Centre and in three business days they can collect their paper vouchers.

Participating registered businesses do not need to re-register, while those who want to join the program are encouraged to sign up now, download the Service NSW for Business app and get ready to redeem.

NSW residents aged 18 years and older who are yet to apply will be able to do so until the program ends and will receive all six $25 vouchers.

Dine & Discover NSW vouchers can be used seven days a week, including public holidays, and are valid to 30 June 2022. More information: nsw.gov.au/covid-19/business/financial-support/dine-discover-nsw
