In 2022 the Tourist Card (Tarjeta Turística) will be extended so that the entire Galician population can be benefited and help promote internal tourism, an initiative under the slogan #QuedamosEnGalicia22 and in which Verdant Experiences is already participating.
The tourist card was launched in 2020 as part of the measures to support the Galician tourism sector as a result of the effects of the influence of COVID-19. In that first edition (valid until May 31, 2021) and know as Bono Turístico/Bono Sanitario, the beneficiaries were the health and social health personnel of Galicia, and now its coverage is extended to the entire Galician population so that they can enjoy its benefits. Then in 2021 was extended to the rest of the population (valid until December 31, 2021) and due the success it will be extended to 2022.
What does it consist of?
The Tourist Card 2022 is a prepaid Visa card (wallet card) that is given to each beneficiary who makes the corresponding request, and that can be used in the tourist establishments and services that are part of the program, for example our agency Verdant Experiences.
The card will be loaded with a balance at the financial institution ABanca that collaborates with the Xunta de Galicia in the implementation of this program. In this new edition, Turismo de Galicia will contribute with 40% of the cost of the voucher and the beneficiary citizen must contribute with the remaining 60%.
