In conjunction with this re opening Zermatt Tourismus is adding an extra ten percent onto voucher purchases
Under the slogan of “Ten percent more Matterhorn”, Zermatt Tourismus is adding a voucher worth an extra ten percent onto voucher purchases. Vouchers are valid for ten years and can be redeemed at over 100 partners across the destination, including restaurants, accommodation providers and shops, Zermatt Bergbahnen and zermatt.ch. Zermatt Tourismus hopes the campaign will increase liquidity, help to retain customers, and offer loyal visitors a thank you in the form of additional value. They say:
We’re proud to have so many loyal visitors and Zermatt fans. Thank you – you are all so generous. And because we value you so much, we’re giving you ten percent more Matterhorn.
Buy a voucher for your holiday here and for a limited period, we’ll add an additional ten percent. For example, if you pay CHF 100, you’ll receive your voucher plus an additional voucher for CHF 10.
Vouchers can be redeemed at over 100 partners across the destination, including restaurants, accommodation providers, shops, cable cars, mountain railways and zermatt.ch.
What will the voucher look like? That’s up to you. You can choose from images of the Matterhorn illuminations that took place recently. Do any of them feature your country’s flag?
