A firm favourite amongst UK holidaymakers, Greece remains one of the most popular destinations of 2018. However, as of 1st January 2018, the Greek Ministry of Tourism have introduced  mandatory Overnight Stay Tax which all tourists must pay on arrival at their hotel. This isn’t an uncommon tax; many countries already have local taxes in place –travellers to mainland Europe and beyond will have already experienced this in plenty of destinations.  If you’re heading to Greece this summer or are thinking of booking up, read on to find out what you need to know:


What will the tax be used for?


It’s a government tax which increases its state revenue and is out with the control of travel agents and tour operators.


Who has to pay it?

How much will I have to pay?


You’ll pay between 0.5 and 4 euros per night, depending on your type of accommodation – we’ve included a handy table below which lets you know what charges you will have to pay.
