2.03.05 - “[We] will extend the 20% tourism rebate for staycationers, extending it to the end of March 2021 to help winter tourism and hospitality operators.”


“The provincial government has renewed the Explore NB Travel Incentive Program that is aimed at encouraging residents to travel and discover the province’s natural beauty and diversity. The summer program will run from May 27 to Oct. 31. It offers a 20 per cent rebate on eligible expenses up to $1,000 for New Brunswickers taking a vacation that includes a paid overnight stay in the province.”


“New Brunswick residents 19 years or older can submit a claim for a 20 percent rebate on up to $1,000 spent on travel related expenses that included a paid overnight stay at a New Brunswick accommodation between October 1, 2020 and March 31, 2021.”


“New Brunswickers who took a staycation this fall or winter who are hoping to get a rebate from the province have less than two weeks left to submit their receipts.”


“In the recent Speech from the Throne we made a commitment to reoffer the program. We are working on an extension of the program and I encourage you to check our website regularly for updates. If you’ve travelled in New Brunswick that included an overnight stay since October 2020, please keep those receipts. And if you plan to travel in our province between now and the end of March 2021, keep those receipts as well.”


“Introduced in July as a way to offset the pandemic’s chill on tourism, the Explore NB Travel Incentive program allowed residents to apply for a 20 per cent rebate on travel expenses of up to $1,000 incurred in the province. The travel had to include an overnight stay, between July 15 and Sept. 30. […] The program has been extended to March 2021. […] No cutoff date has been announced yet for submissions for the extended 2021 rebate, but residents who plan to travel in New Brunswick between now and March 31, 2021 should keep their receipts, Jutras said.”
