TakeABreak Gift Voucher Case Study for Business
Subway make it easy for staff to enjoy rewards with TakeABreak
Guy Parsons, owner of Subway Mudgee, believes in rewarding staff for a job well done and likes to do it in a way that really demonstrates his commitment to recognising the integral role of staff in the success of the business.
One of the ways he does this is by using holiday gift vouchers from TakeABreak® - the online travel site with over 12,000 places to stay Australia-wide. “We gave our Manager a gift voucher as an incentive bonus and to encourage her to take holidays and enjoy some family time, as it can be a very demanding job. TakeABreak’s gift vouchers can even be used in during the school holidays, which means our Manager can go away with her family without having to take the kids out of school.”
“One of the things we like about the holiday gift vouchers is that we can personalise the amount of the voucher to reflect the significance of the achievement, so we use different value vouchers depending on the level of reward”, Parsons said. “The vouchers are so easy to order that you can respond quickly to reward effort and achievements.”
The feedback from staff has been excellent and has contributed to the ongoing use of TakeABreak holiday gift vouchers. The gift vouchers are available in pre-set denominations of $100, $200 or $500 – or you can nominate your own amount. Just go to

“We find them to be very user-friendly and they allow the recipient to choose where and when they wish to use the vouchers. They can choose to use them as part payment for a longer break, or the total value of a short getaway, depending on where they stay and whether or not it is peak season,” continued Parsons. “The other bonus is the great support we receive from TakeABreak in administering the vouchers and we always receive a prompt response to any queries.”
Thinking outside the square and rewarding staff with holiday gift vouchers has been a positive experience for Subway Mudgee and it is one they intend to continue, thanks to the ease of administration and great feedback from staff.
