I have heard the tourist tax is going up from 1 euro to 4euro soon, has any one else heard about this? June
Yes, it has been in the news.
I am not surprised. More people travelling, more tourists from China, tourists are avoiding places like Tunisia and Egypt. This means more demand for the likes of Spain. I suspect too that following the Hurricanes tourists will not be booking the Bahamas for their 2018 holidays. Locals in some tourist resorts are fed up so, politically, a tourist tax increase seems inevitable.
1-4 euros isn't quite right , the tax is to double, but it was on a scale depending on star rating. 4* this year was 1.50 so this will be 3 plus tax . If you type in tourist tax you'll see that there is a scale with all this years rate , double it to see what it'll be for next year.
Thank you, June
