Indonesia has launched a VIP ("Visit Indonesia Program") card to entice bargain-lovers. The card is being sold in tourism offices, travel agencies and Matahari department stores throughout the country at $75 for foreigners and $40 for residents. Card holders are promised discounts of up to 75% on hotel rooms, as well as savings on restaurant bills and golf course fees. More than 250 establishments are taking part in the promotion. Card-carrying VIPs will also receive automatic insurance coverage of up to $46 for accidents and $465 for accidental death while holidaying in the country. The program is somewhat more subdued than last year's "Let's Go Indonesia" incentives, which offered freebies and discounts to visitors who arrived on a surprise "Happy Day" (June 30) and during the "Magic Month" of August to September.
