Australian celebrities encourage people to take the #RoadTripPledge

Font Size:

Holiday rental website Stayz is offering Aussie travellers $100 Visa gift cards for bookings of more than $1000 at regional locations as part of its #RoadTripPledge promotion.

The offer is available for the first 1000 bookings made in Australia.

The #RoadTripPledge aims to draw attention back to the needs of regional areas, which have had to bear the brunt of the bushfires over summer and now the impact of recently imposed COVID-19 travel bans.

A number of Australian celebrities have thrown their support behind the campaign, including Edwina Bartholomew, Natalie Bassingthwaighte, Cameron Daddo and Alison Brahe, Jamie Durie, Adam Liaw, Benji and Zoe Marshall, Catriona Rowntree, Tom Williams and Dr Katrina Warren.

Each has made their own promise to travel locally with their families across 2020 by road as a genuine way to give back to recovering regions and tourism.

The campaign was created by Stayz as a response to the devastating bushfires over the Australian summer when thousands of properties, businesses and people were affected by bushfire and drought.

Just as recovery was underway, COVID-19 left regional towns further isolated.

With travel now taking off again in many places across the country, the #RoadTripPledge message is simple: focus on reconnecting Australian families with these impacted areas, encouraging Australians to make a simple promise to take on new adventures and hit the road to rebuild tourism.

The pledge reads like this:

As a reminder of the incredible power of regeneration.
I stand with regional Australian towns.
I vow to explore impacted places by road.
To spend generously in towns of all sizes.

To always ask locals, “Are you okay?”
To value moments of connection with the people I love.

And find a renewed sense of adventure together.

Even when the headlines have stopped, and the social media has ceased.

We will not forget the reason why we made our #RoadTripPledge.

Will you be taking a road trip holiday before the end of the year? Where will you go? Will a $100 gift card encourage you to visit a regional area in Australia for your next holiday.
