please help me understand. I am booking a hotel in Santiago and on ALL the web sites it calls for about 19% tax. There is no way you can get out of subtracting this as it is called (for us stupid people) a "recovery fee". I called each site and told them that US citizens DO NOT pay this tax on hotels in Chile and they didn't know what I was talking about.
I called the hotel chains and they didn't either.
Can anyone elaborate?
This goes for any US chain, by the way.
