Amsterdam, The Netherlands: Adds More Tourist Taxes PDF Print E-mail

This year visitors to the popular Dutch capital must pay added moolah to stay in city hotels, Airbnb rentals and on camp grounds there. They’ll shell out about  $4 a night, added to an existing 7% tax.

The extra charges are happening in other world tourist-popular cities this year. On July 1, visitors to Venice, Italy, will also pay more, about $11 a night. Overnight visitors already pay a tourist tax. Entire countries have adopted extra charges as well. A year ago, Japan started applying a $10 "sayonara" tax to leave the country. It may increase dramatically during summer when the 2020 Olympics bring in many more thousands of tourists to Tokyo.
