Whether you want to enjoy a meal from a local restaurant or bring your kids to an indoor playground city, you’ll find plenty of options for the entire family. Who needs to travel far when you can experience it all in Richmond?
How Does the Discovery Passport Work?
Visit the Discovery Passport web page on your mobile phone to sign up for the passport. A personalized link will be sent instantly to you by both text and email. Remember to add the passport as a home screen icon so you can easily access it.
The web app is easy to navigate, and more than 25 participating businesses have been separated into five categories: Discover, Eat, Experience, Shop, and Stay.
Simply click on a category and you will see a list of participating businesses and their offers. Not all businesses have an offer—some are offering a “check-in” feature (with or without purchase) that will enable you to become one step closer to winning one of three prizes.
Visit our FAQs page for answers to some frequently asked questions about the Discovery Passport.
How to Redeem Offers or Check-In
Follow the redemption instructions on the passport to claim an offer or check-in at a location. Most businesses will ask you to show the offer on the Discovery Passport to an attendant. The attendant will fulfill the offer, and provide you with a special 4-digit PIN that is required to mark the offer as “redeemed.”
Don’t forget to ask for and enter the PIN into your passport; this is your ticket to becoming eligible for the prize draws!
Win Prizes Along the Way
There is a benefit to visiting several local businesses—you’ll be entered to win prizes! When you redeem offers or check-ins at five businesses, you will be automatically entered into a prize draw for a Pacific. Authentic. Richmond BC swag bag. But that’s only the start. The more you redeem, the better the prizes.
If you check-in or redeem offers at 10 different businesses, you will be entered to win a Richmond shopping and dinner experience, valued at $200. And if you complete 15 redemptions or check-ins, you will be entered into a grand prize draw for the Ultimate Richmond Getaway. This prize is valued at over $800 and includes one night’s accommodation at the Sheraton Vancouver Airport and a Vancouver Whale Watch tour for two.
Support Local Businesses
Aside from the amazing offers and prizes, the Discovery Passport is also a great way to support local businesses. Richmond businesses are eager to welcome visitors back and have adopted new health and safety protocols to ensure the safety of staff and visitors.
