A total of 257 accommodation facilities will participate in the “Taipei Go" program, offering NTD 1,000 (USD 35) deductions on room rates to 100,000 individual travelers from Dec 24 to March 7.

Taipei’s Department of Information and Tourism told Taiwan News that the program is limited to citizens only, and each person is eligible for the subsidy only once. Taiwanese nationals wishing to take advantage of the subsidy will have to upload their basic personal information and ID documents to the relevant website before they check in at a participating hotel or B&B.

Eligible travelers will enjoy an NTD 1,000 deduction on their room rate, and the occupants of each room will receive two free tickets for double-decker sightseeing bus tickets. The deduction is not usable on most Fridays and Saturdays.

Applicants are required to book rooms by phone or through participating hotels' websites. Booking through an online travel agent is not permitted.
