Tourist tax in Paris

Tourist tax in Paris

 

A tax for the development and promotion of tourism in Paris

 

On 1 January 1994, the Paris City Council introduced a tourist tax (“taxe de séjour”) which is applicable to all forms of paid accommodation: hotels and apartments, furnished accommodation, camp sites, etc.

 

During their stay in France, visitors are usually asked to pay a tourism tax or a flat-rate tourism tax which is fixed by the local authority and varies from € 0.15 to € 1.07 per person per day, according to the quality and standard of the accommodation.

Where the tourism tax is not flat rate, children under 4 years of age are exempt and children under 10 are charged half the rate.

This tax is collected by the owner of the accommodation and will be included in your hotel bill, rent, etc…so you do not have to worry about it.

 

Allocated to the development and promotion of tourism, this tax is also collected by many other countries (in Europe: Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, the Netherlands, Greece).
