Posted October 12, 2019 07:25:23For some, a travel visa is the perfect ticket to go and spend the holidays with family, friends and colleagues.
But for others, the dream of a one-stop shopping experience, an international airport lounge and the chance to visit the world can be a challenge.
So what are the best holiday visa gift vouchers that will give you the perfect holiday experience and get you to the destination?ABC Travel Writer Emma Watson travelled to Paris to see if there was a better travel visa than a gift card.
What you need to know about gift cardsFor some people, the gift card can be used as a credit card, which is a great way to make travel more affordable.
But for others like Emma, it can be just as important.
“It’s a gift to me because it’s something I can’t really spend.
It’s like a credit to me,” she said.”
I’m able to do that while not paying taxes, and it’s very important for people in the community to have that credit to give to people who are able to help them.”
Emma says the gift cards help people pay for holidays in a way they would not otherwise.
“When I buy a car and then I get an Australian passport, I know I’m buying something for myself,” she explained.
“If I’m just getting the travel visa, I can spend that on a car, for example, and then spend it on groceries or food.”
Emilie says she has found the gift vouchers are useful for a variety of reasons, such as getting around without a car.
“They’re really useful for getting around the country,” she joked.
“You can go to the airport and the ticket office is free, so I can walk from Sydney to Melbourne in under 20 minutes.”
That’s quite useful because there’s a lot of people who would be able to afford to travel on their own but aren’t able to because of their health.
“Emile has used the gift voucher to get around the world, and found it to be invaluable.”
In terms of making sure I’m paying taxes and all the other things I need to do, I’ve got a good idea of how much it costs me to get there and what it’s like,” she says.”
Then when I go and do my shopping, I have a much better idea of what it costs to get that shopping done.
“Emmy says she’s happy with the gift and is glad that she can take the credit with her on her way to France.”
My travel is just so much easier because I don’t have to worry about a car or having to pay tax,” she concluded.
