One-week Window for Scotland’s Tourism Firms to Access Days Out Incentive Fund

Grants are available to visitor attractions and experiences in Scotland to support their post-pandemic recovery.

The Days Out Incentive Fund is intended to support the recovery of tourism businesses following the COVID-19 pandemic, and to encourage customers to visitor attractions and experiences across Scotland, in the off-season.

The total fund available is £4 million. The grant award will be based on turnover from ticketing. Grants of up to £25,000 are available.

Funding is for businesses to subsidise the cost of a ticket to their visitor attraction, activity, or day tour excursion, and participate in the Days Out ‘up to 50% off’ promotion.

Visitor attractions and experiences that are open, have paid admission fees and are based in Scotland can apply.

Applications will open on 5 October 2021 (12:00 BST) and close on 12 October 2021 (17:00 BST).
