Urgent measures to support Retail, Culture & Hospitality

Bilbao City Council, through Bilbao Ekintza, is leading the Bono Bilbao campaign to support the sectors most affected by the crisis caused by Covid-19, within the framework of the Bilbao Aurrera Plan.

In November 2020, Bilbao City Council, through its municipal company Bilbao Ekintza, launched the #BONOBILBAO campaign, within the Aurrera Bilbao Plan, to help the four sectors most affected by COVID-19 in the city: Commerce, culture, restaurants and tourism (accommodation and tourist activities).

Following the success of the Commerce, Culture and Hospitality vouchers of the Aurrera 2020 Plan and the Commerce vouchers of the Aurrera 2021 Plan, the sale of vouchers for the Bilbao Culture and Hospitality Voucher campaign of the Aurrera Bilbao 2021 Plan has now begun, after a first phase of adhesion to the campaign by businesses and establishments.

The deadline for companies in the cultural and hospitality sector to join the scheme began on 8 September. In this way, more than 155,000 vouchers will be launched (124,000 for hospitality and 30,529 for culture) with a budget of 1.5 million euros, which will encourage direct consumption by the public with the aim of economically reactivating these sectors.

You can now buy your vouchers at www.bonobilbao.eus. In the case of the hotel and catering trade, there are two vouchers: for 10 and 20 euros, with the Bilbao City Council contributing half the value. Five vouchers can be withdrawn per ID card and up to four can be used for each purchase ticket. The deadline for use is 5 December 2021.

The Culture vouchers, on the other hand, have a value of 20 and 40 euros. Ten vouchers can be collected per ID card and up to four can be exchanged per purchase ticket. The vouchers can be redeemed until 15 March 2022.

If you have any questions about the campaign, you can send an e-mail to bonobilbao@bilbaoekintza.bilbao.eus, or call 944 20 53 95 from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm.

Likewise, the Bilbao Bizkaia Tourism Voucher scheme, promoted on this occasion jointly by the City Council and the Regional Government, is also currently active.
