I have mentioned this many times, and please remember to see the activity content above.
Q. During the event, can a person apply for several subsidies and can stay for a few nights?
During the event, everyone will be entitled to apply for discount once.
If your trip is more than one day, the remaining nights, you can use the identity documents of the your friends or family who have not applied for the subsidy.
Q. Can I use the booking website to order a hotel at this event?
The Tourism Bureau announces the tourism subsidy method, which means that before booking, please ask the counter which you plan to live or search on TaiwanStay to make sure the available reservation methods.
- If the owner agrees to use the reservation website to order the hotel, you can book on: AsiaYo, Agoda, Booking.com, Hotels.com, and choose the lowest price hotel.
- If you are too lazy to search one by one, you can also view AsiaYo to sort of it exclusively. You can order immediately the subsidized hotel.
- However, if the operator mentioned that they cannot make reservations online, you just can only order directly with the hotel. Need to pay attention to the following matters:
In the past, subsidy activities have occurred in the prices of operators are more expensive than reservations online, and some are even sold at a higher price.
Therefore, if you encounter an operator who can’t use the reservation online to book a hotel, you can first go to HotelsCombined to see the real price! Then it will let you won’t get NTD 1,000, but in fact, you need to pay more.
If you have any questions about “2019 Expansion of the National Tourism Autumn and Winter Tour Grant” program, you can directly call the Tourism Bureau for enquiries.
- For enquiries, please call 02-2349-1500 (service hours: 08:00 ~ 18:00)
- 24-hour toll-free travel hotline: 0800-011765
I like the government’s promotion activities, which will not only promote autumn and winter tourism in Taiwan, but also increase the chances of traveling with family and friends.
As long as you have a Taiwan ID card, you can participate in this subsidy. It also means that I can take my Filipino mother to travel in Taiwan.
And the application process is not complicated, but remember that if you want to live in a hotel that does not offer online reservations, remember to compare prices beforehand to avoid being charged a higher price.
