There are just two months remaining before both the Falkland Islands TRIP and BFSAI TRIP schemes end on 31 May 2021. Both Tourism Recovery Incentive Programmes – known locally as ‘TRIP’ schemes – have proved very popular since launching, providing participants with vouchers to spend on local tourism activities while commercial airlinks remain suspended due to the pandemic.

The number of registered individuals – including adults and children – for the TRIP scheme was 2,827 in mid-March. For the BFSAI TRIP scheme, a total of 1,500 vouchers were issued up to the start of the month, with another 1,001 adult vouchers then released on 18 March.

TRIP is a domestic tourism stimulus scheme that is open to everyone who is ordinarily resident in the Falkland Islands and provides eligible adults with a £500 digital voucher and eligible children with a £250 digital voucher to be spent on tourism accommodation, hospitality and experiences, provided by registered businesses. It also incorporates the BFSAI TRIP scheme which provides eligible adult military personnel with a voucher worth up to £100 and eligible children with a voucher worth £50.

TRIP is administered by International Tours & Travel on behalf of FIG. Details on how to apply for the scheme are available on the ITT website or by calling 22041.
