New Greek Accommodation Tax

December 7, 2017 Destination Europe No Comments Email Email

THE Greek Government has introduced a new “Stayover Tax” which applies to all types of accommodation but leading Australian wholesaler Beyond Travel doesn’t expect it to deter travel to Greece in 2018.

The levy will be imposed as of January 1, 2018, on hotels and furnished rooms/rental apartments and will be calculated on the number of overnight stays and the category of the accommodation, ranging from 50 cents to four Euros per room.

Beyond’s general manager of sales and marketing Bryce Crampton said while not insignificant, the new tax would add around total 20.00 Euros to an average Australians stay at popular four-star hotels and is paid locally, so it is unlikely to have a significant impact on bookings and there is the hope it will lead to improved facilities for visitors.

A long time specialist in the region, Beyond Travel is confident that the popularity of Greece and its fascinating islands with Australian travellers will continue despite the new levy.
