8,000 tourist vouchers distributed to boost La Palma’s economy

The two raffles for the Bono La Palma tourist vouchers held in April and May attracted the participation of almost 132,000 Spanish residents who were eligible for these cards worth 250 euros each.

Co-financed by the Secretary of State for Tourism, the Bono La Palma programme involves accommodation, restaurants, cafés and active tourism and whale-watching companies. A wide range of complementary activities that make the programme’s tractor effect reach all the sectors that were affected after the eruption of September 2021.

Of the total number of businesses registered so far in the programme, 68 are holiday homes; 49 rural houses; 21 bars; 20 restaurants; 18 flats; 13 hotels; 11 active tourism businesses; 3 complementary activities businesses; and 2 whale-watching businesses.

The people who have won the draws will be able to enjoy their virtual card until the 31st of December this year, so La Palma businesses in the sector can still register on to join the programme, a prerequisite to benefit from the tourist vouchers. Businesses located on La Palma must be registered in the General Tourist Register. In addition, it is essential to have a physical POS in order to be able to consume the 250 euros by paying directly at the establishment.

To resolve any doubts that may arise during the process, the La Palma Voucher Service has been set up, with the telephone number 828 008 002, which can be reached from Monday to Saturday from 9.00 to 17.00 hours (Canary Islands time), as well as the e-mail address.
