Tourist Fee

A tourist fee, also known as a tourist tax or city tax, is a levy imposed by local governments or authorities on visitors who stay in accommodations within a particular destination, such as hotels, hostels, vacation rentals, or campgrounds. The purpose of a tourist tax is to generate revenue for the local government to support and maintain tourism-related infrastructure, services, and amenities. It is typically charged on a per-night basis for each guest’s stay and is in addition to the cost of the accommodation.  

The city tax is generally not included in the hotel price and is paid directly to the hotel when checking out. 

Below we have gathered the information we have on the tourist tax. Please note that the rates and regulations may change over time without any notification by the authorities.

United States of America (USA):

Hotels in USA often charge a “resort fee” in addition to the hotel room charge.

Resort fees are individually defined by the hotel owners and are charged by resorts, casinos, and other hotels on a nightly basis, not per stay.

These fees cannot be included in the official hotel prices, they are payable directly to the hotels on location, and are typically charged on a per room basis, not per person.

Resort fee may also be called “destination fee,” “facility fee” or “amenity fee”.

What exactly the fee covers, and its amount, are stated on the hotels’ websites.
