The Minister of Industry, Trade and Tourism, Reyes Maroto, presented on 31st March ReactivaTur, a project that provides information on all the aid available for tourism from the different administrations, from European to local aid, with the aim of reactivating the tourism sector after the unprecedented challenge of the COVID-19 pandemic.
What will you find in ReactivaTur?
Through a search engine and an interactive map, tourism companies can find aid linked to economic, fiscal, employment and training aspects, as well as actions aimed at the digital transformation of the sector that are available in each autonomous community.
These grants cover all types of sub-sectors of tourism companies and associations, from spas, events companies to travel agencies. You will find all the information you need to apply for the aid that best suits your company: application deadline, amount of the call, type of aid, a brief summary and the link to apply for it. To avoid a frustrating user experience, reactivatur will only show the measures that are in force and for which the registration or application period is still open.
It is worth noting that the Basque Country, Catalonia, Valencia and Andalusia have more than 18 measures in force, being leaders in their aid proposal.
