Great news for tourists and Stellenbosch locals, the successful Support Stellenbosch campaign has been extended. Phase one of the popular campaign helped to generate more than R5 million for the town’s restaurant economy and now the next phase of the campaign hopes to boost business for the accommodation and experiences sector as well with value-filled accommodation, experiences and restaurant rewards for those visiting the town over the next few weeks.
The new phase of the campaign will have a strong accommodation focus and encourages tourists to explore the town of Stellenbosch while they’re there.
Kicking off on 23rd October, Support Stellenbosch 2.0 invites visitors to play, and stay, with a range of incredible overnight stays and exciting tourism experiences at discounted rates. Endorsed by the Cape Winelands District municipality, Stellenbosch Municipality, Stellenbosch University and Wesgro, the campaign calls on residents to support local business, experience Stellenbosch as tourists, and inspire their networks to discover what Stellenbosch has to offer, in times of Covid-19 and beyond.
For phase 2, participating accommodation has been discounted at 50% and can be enjoyed by visitors separately, but also in conjunction with holiday packages offered during the promotion period. In addition, visitors can enjoy discounts on a range of experiences such as wine and drinks pairings, guided wine tours, spa treatments and e-bike rides, among others.
“From stunning guest houses and hotels in the centre of Stellenbosch to stays on guest farms and in country homes, we’re inviting visitors to come and enjoy all Stellenbosch has to offer and be rewarded for their stay with special accommodation and activity discounts, as well as the ability to earn and burn Stellenbucks in the town’s restaurants,” says Jeanneret Momberg, CEO of Visit Stellenbosch.
A key component of Support Stellenbosch, the Restaurant Rewards programme, sees patrons who dine in a participating restaurant and spend R200 or more on their SnapScan transaction receive a voucher to the value of 50% of what they spend, redeemable through SnapScan at any participating restaurant within the campaign period (capped at a maximum of R400).
Accommodation partners for the next phase of the campaign include the likes of De Hoek Manor, Majeka House, Oude Werf Hotel, Stellenbosch Hotel, and many more. Some of the experiences guests can take advantage of during the campaign include Horse Riding at Pink Geranium, Wine experiences at Avontuur Estate, a cycle tour of Stellenbosch with Adventure Shop, and more.
