Card pro­vides dis­count boost

Sunday Territorian - - 2019 SENIORS EXPO ADVERTISIN­G FEATURE -

SE­NIORS Card is an Aus­tralia-wide ini­tia­tive, sup­ported by Gov­ern­ment in each ju­ris­dic­tion, to pro­vide busi­ness dis­counts to se­niors and recog­nise the valu­able con­tri­bu­tion that older people have made, and con­tinue to make, for our com­mu­nity.

The North­ern Ter­ri­tory Se­niors Card (pre­vi­ously man­aged by Ter­ri­tory Fam­i­lies) has been man­aged by COTA NT since Fe­bru­ary 2018.

The NT Se­niors Card is free for all North­ern Ter­ri­tory per­ma­nent res­i­dents 60 years or older. The card has no ex­piry date, it is a life­time card.

There are cur­rently over 330 par­tic­i­pat­ing busi­nesses of­fer­ing dis­counts of around 10 per cent to Ter­ri­tory se­niors.

NT Se­niors Card hold­ers are en­ti­tled to free bus travel on the pub­lic bus net­works in Dar­win and Alice Springs and an an­nual dis­count of $55 on mo­tor ve­hi­cle reg­is­tra­tion.

In the last year over 100 busi­nesses have been added to the pro­gram.

It pays to ask busi­nesses if they of­fer a dis­count even if they don’t have a Se­niors Card logo on the door, or be­fore mak­ing a big pur­chase to ask if the busi­ness of­fers a dis­count.

On 12 April, COTA NT launched the NT Se­niors Card 2019 Busi­ness Dis­count Direc­tory in Alice Springs in cel­e­bra­tion of the 20th an­niver­sary of Se­niors Card.

The 2019 Di­rec­to­ries is avail­able at Expo, the COTA NT of­fice at Spil­lett House in Dar­win or elec­toral of­fices, li­braries, lo­cal coun­cils and Ter­ri­tory Fam­i­lies shopfronts.
