According to government regulations, local merchants accept consumer vouchers.

AlipayHK said that as long as local companies accept AlipayHK, Hong Kong people can pay with consumer coupons.

Q2. Does the travel agency accept vouchers for payment?

The payment platform provided by each travel agency is different.

However, members of the public should note that the travel agency's website system may not accept consumption vouchers.

For example, the website of Zonghengyou does not provide the payment function of consumption coupons. Citizens can go to their stores in person and pay with AlipayHK or Tap&Go consumption coupons.

Q3. Does the airline accept coupon payment?

The payment platform provided by each airline is different.

Cathay Pacific stated that as long as the selected payment platform supports consumption vouchers, the vouchers can be used, and the excess amount will be paid by the amount of the account e-wallet.

Looking through the information, the consumer coupon payment platforms provided by Cathay Pacific include Alipay and WeChat payment; the low-cost airline Hong Kong Express also pays for Alipay and WeChat; as for Hong Kong Airlines, only Alipay is accepted.

Q4. Does the travel website accept coupon payment?

The payment platform offered by each travel website is different.

However, the public should pay attention to whether the online store is a local company or not, otherwise they will not be able to pay with consumer coupons.

Looking at the website information, Trip.com accepts Tap&Go, AlipayHK and WeChat Pay for payment with coupons; Expedia accepts Mastercard or UnionPay card accounts in Tap & Go for payment with coupons.

Q5. How can I book ANA, JAL, etc. seats with consumption coupons?

Payment with vouchers cannot be made directly through the website of a non-local airline.

However, if the public makes a reservation through a local travel agency, they can use the payment platform accepted by the travel agency to pay with consumption coupons, but it also depends on whether the travel agency provides the relevant seats.

Yuan Zhenning, the executive director of Zonghengyou, explained that booking travel products through local travel agencies can also stimulate Hong Kong's economy, which is in line with government regulations, so consumer coupons can be accepted as payment, "It seems that the goods purchased in Parknshop are Made in Japan (made in Japan). Same goes for coupons.”
