New touristic fees for the province of Catalonia
There will be a new tourist tax in October. This tax is based on the amount per person and days of stay. The amount can vary from 0,50 to 2,50 person/days (according to the establishment and localization).
Children under 16 don´t pay any fees. If the stay is longer than one week, there is some deduction. You will find more information in the end of this publication.
Attention: accommodations outside the Catalonia don´t have any fees (although they are managed by the catalonian companies)
Example of the calculation with fee 0,5 euro: 3 persons in the apartment during 5 days;
3pax * 0,50 * 5 = 7,5 euro
