The voucher is a unique number for each beneficiary and each beneficiary separately. Upon arrival at the tourist accommodation, the providers activate the checks through electronic services (e-services) of DYPA.
Beneficiaries-beneficiaries can spend up to 6 nights in accommodation they choose from the Register of Providers, after direct consultation with the provider, with little private participation.
In Leros, Lesvos, Chios, Kos and in the prefecture of Evros, up to 10 nights can be spent with zero private participation, while in the municipalities of Istiaea-Edipsos and Mantoudi-Limni-Ag. Annas of N. Evia and Samos can take place up to 12 nights completely free of charge.
Subsidy prices remain increased by 20% for the peak month of August, as last year, while for the first time they are also increased by 20% during the Christmas (15.12.2023 to 14.01.2024) and Easter (26.04.2024 to 12.05) periods .2024). The increase is valid for the whole year for the accommodation of North Evia and Samos.
In addition to accommodation, ferry tickets are also subsidized. The participation of beneficiaries amounts to 25% and those with multiple children to 20%. For people with disabilities, ferry tickets are available free of charge.
For ferry travel, the beneficiaries-beneficiaries print from DYPA’s electronic services (e-services) the check for social tourism for ferry travel and come to the travel agencies or ticketing agencies or electronic ticket offices of the providers, show their printed check and request the issuance of a ferry “social tourism ticket” of the category to which they belong. It is pointed out that no supporting documents are required for any category, except for the category with many children.
DYPA is not involved in the process of issuing a ferry “social tourism ticket”. Through a web service, the ticket is issued and the social tourism voucher for ferry travel is activated for the journey and return. Ferry travel is only allowed for going/returning to/from the location of the selected tourist accommodation.
It is recalled that beneficiaries of last year’s program who have not yet activated the checks can take vacations until July 31, 2023.
