Spain's Benidorm Hands Everyone €50 To Spend In Bars & Hospitality


Benidorm will give € 50 bonuses to all its registered residents to inject 6.2 million in commerce and hospitality.

The City Council will distribute checks to all people in Benidorm over 18 years of age to deduct purchases or consumption made in shops, bars and restaurants before the 31st. Inject at least 6.2 million euros into the local productive fabric this Christmas.

With this objective, the Benidorm City Council has launched an initiative to establish a voucher with which to encourage consumption in commercial, hotel and restaurant establishments during the coming weeks, through which citizens will be able to obtain discounts of up to 50 % of the expense they make up to an amount of 100 euros. This was announced this Thursday by the mayor of the city, Toni Pérez, who was in charge of presenting this initiative, called “Benidorm gives you more.”

All registered citizens over 18 years of age and establishments of all kinds that have their activity and their tax headquarters located in Benidorm will be able to participate in the campaign.

The former will have to register on a municipal website to be able to receive up to five vouchers of 10 euros, a total of 50 euros, which can be deducted from any purchase they make in the premises attached to the campaign, provided that it has an amount of double of the value of each voucher. That is, they will be able to use these 10-euro vouchers together or separately for purchases or consumptions that start from 20 euros and up to 100 euros, half of which will be paid by the user himself and the other half by the City Council. According to the registry data, the measure will reach about 62,000 citizens, and the deadline for making purchases will be December 31.
