The Finestrat City Council has been the beneficiary of €73,000 in aid from the Alicante Provincial Council that will be used to minimize the impact of the increase in costs suffered by the hotels participating in the IMSERSO tourism program.
In the words of the Councilor for Tourism, Donna Rebecca Plummer , “once again we thank the Alicante Provincial Council, always sensitive to the needs of people, companies in general and the tourism sector in particular. In this specific case, they have granted us €73,000 that will go to the hotels in the municipalities that work with IMSERSO and that have recently suffered the impact of the increase in energy prices and inflation. The Provincial Council activated this line of aid precisely to compensate for the reduction in financing that comes from the Central Government for this tourism program."
This call for aid, endowed with €1.5 million, is promoted by the Economic Development area of the Alicante Provincial Council, with the collaboration of the Costa Blanca Tourist Board and HOSBEC, and is channeled through the town councils. These aid will be distributed among the 37 hotels in the province of Alicante that participated in 2022 in this travel program for seniors. In the case of Finestrat, the aid amounts to €72,966 and the beneficiaries are 2 hotels located in La Cala, Alone and Tropic Relax, which work with IMSERSO.
“We must not forget that IMSERSO allows hotel establishments to be kept open and allows all these jobs to be maintained during the winter. Therefore, we welcome this aid and those that can be called to compensate for the effects of the price increase and also the delays in the awarding of these tourist vacations specifically intended for our seniors," concluded the Tourism mayor.
