Discounts at Victorian tourist attractions, a specially designed wallet by Melbourne’s leading cartoonist Mark Knight, a transport map and a myki ready for travel will provide visitors to Melbourne with easy access to public transport and popular city sites. The myki Visitor Pack is now on sale and ready for accommodation houses and tourism organisations to offer their clients.
Transport Ticketing Authority Chief Executive Officer Bernie Carolan says the new myki Visitor Pack is all visitors to Victoria will need during their stay.
“Visitors coming to Victoria can now buy their ticket to travel on public transport in a myki Visitor Pack that also includes special offers at 15 Melbourne attractions,” Mr Carolan says.
“The included myki comes pre-loaded with enough value to cover one day’s travel in Zone 1, and includes information to help visitors get around Melbourne and use the myki ticketing system.
“It can easily be topped up with additional credit for people staying longer.”
A full fare myki Visitor Pack costs $14 and includes $8 myki money, while a concession myki Visitor Pack (general concession, child and seniors) costs $7 and includes $4 myki money.
The myki Visitor Pack includes:
- discount offers at 15 attractions including Melbourne Aquarium, the National Sports Museum, Eureka Skydeck and Puffing Billy, saving visitors up to $130
- a protective myki wallet designed by renowned cartoonist Mark Knight
- a public transport map and information on how to use myki, including instructions on how to top up.
Mr Carolan says the myki Visitor Pack meets the public transport and entertainment needs of visitors to Victoria and is a source of income for accommodation and tourism providers.
“In developing the myki Visitor Pack we need to ensure it provides easy and instant access to public transport for visitors and is readily available from places where visitors would commonly go for information,” he says.
“This is the first time the public transport and tourism industries have come together to provide visitors with access to a product that combines travel, tourist information and entertainment offers all in one.
“I would urge any tourism or accommodation provider wanting to sell the myki Visitor Pack to contact our team by calling 9651 7714 or emailing email@example.com.”
Agents selling the myki Visitor Pack earn a five per cent commission on each pack sold and will be educated in the product’s features and benefits by the Transport Ticketing Authority’s account managers.
Agents are provided with a myki Visitor Pack agent kit which explains in detail the product on offer, how to order and who to contact for account management services.
Agents will also be provided with ‘frequently asked questions’ information to answer any questions clients might have, as well as point of sale materials to promote the myki Visitor Pack.
