Is using a voucher like qantas hotel voucher or Amex travel credit counted as eligible expenditure for reimbursement ?
(assuming you're referring to the current victorian travel voucher, and not the previous regional one) Asked the exact same question this morning. To quote the guy from Business Victoria hotline verbatim: "Yes, so you would basically be reimbursed for the.. uh.. amount with the coupon included"

Planning to use a Qantas Hotels $50 voucher for a stay.

132215, wait times are quick. Explained my situation on the phone and how the Qantas invoice looked, since I've prepaid and the invoice is issued upon booking. There would be one row with "Booking created" on the invoice that shows the original room price, a "Voucher redemption" row with -$50, and a "Total" row at the bottom showing the price with the coupon applied. The person said that yes, I would be reimbursed for the original amount.
