KUALA LUMPUR, 1 September 2021 – Realising that most Malaysians are needing an escape from their own homes and recognising the government’s efforts to achieve herd immunity, SubHome and VIP Pass are offering a reward to vaccinated individuals.
Vaccinated individuals are entitled to a VIP Pass which earns them a free one-night stay at any of SubHome suites in Malaysia.
“All of us are aware of the blow COVID-19 has dealt to economy and many industries. By doing this, we would like to incentivise the government’s target in achieving herd immunity,” said Nicolas How, Sales Director, The VIP Pass.
In offering a suite-deal to those who are vaccinated, it may motivate others into getting vaccinated too. Achieving a population comprising a majority of vaccinated people will become a catalyst to boosting the economy, and help industries that have been hardest hit. Essentially allowing people to get back to somewhat of their normal life faster.
“Tourism and hospitality will see more activities and hopefully it will recover quickly. Furthermore, achieving herd immunity will also ease the burden of our frontliners and give them a much needed break too.”
“The VIP Pass team comprises of travel industry veterans and we want to help the sector to get back on its feet. We know of stakeholders that have been suffering badly but refuse to let go of their staff and we have been hard at work crafting new products to help them bounce back or at the very least sustain so they don’t close down,” How adds.
Offering the free one-night stay will entice more individuals to get vaccinated, it is hoped, and raise morale while giving everyone something to look forward to, especially with recent announcements that fully vaccinated individuals will enjoy a slight lax in restrictions.
“The fear of missing out is a powerful tool. By offering this, we hope that talk of holiday plans will fuel others into getting vaccinated faster so they will not miss out and will be able to participate in fun times,” he said.
The free one-night stay can be claimed by anyone. The only condition is that they need to be vaccinated before their stay, in accordance to the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) set by the government. “Guests are only to pay a cleaning charge of RM50 for the room. The stay is subsidised by The VIP Pass and the offer is claimable on https://getvippass.com/ from now till September 9th, 2021.
