Aussies are being reminded to use any outstanding Stay NSW and Parents NSW vouchers which are set to expire on October 9.

There are around $74 million worth of Stay NSW vouchers that have still not been redeemed and $63 million worth of Parents NSW vouchers yet to be redeemed.

Parents NSW vouchers are worth a combined $250 and Stay NSW vouchers are worth $50.

Minister for customer service and digital government Victor Dominello said the vouchers have provided hip pocket relief to families across NSW, helping boost their budget.

“The people of NSW have warmly embraced both the Stay and Parent voucher programs, with almost $282 million injected into the State’s economy since their inception,” Dominello said.

“Don’t miss out.

“The vouchers are a win-win. They provide a boost to household budgets as well as providing much needed stimulus for local businesses.”

The NSW Government launched the vouchers to reward and thank eligible NSW households for their efforts to support learning from home in 2021.

How to use your Parents NSW voucher

One person from each eligible household can apply for five $50 vouchers, worth $250 in total.

The Parents NSW Vouchers can be used:

How to use your Stay NSW voucher

NSW residents aged 18 and over can apply for one $50 voucher to use towards the cost of accommodation bookings. ​

The voucher can be applied for in the NSW Services app.

NSW Government vouchers are non-transferable and can only be redeemed by the customer who was issued the voucher.

They cannot be used as a gift or donation to a registered business and cannot be exchanged for cash or gift vouchers.
