Tourist tax

When you book accommodation the Netherlands, you may need to pay tourist tax. This is a tax that a municipality can levy to help pay for facilities that a tourist enjoys during their visit.

Why do you have to pay this? When there are a lot of tourists staying in a city they also use a lot of resources, like street-cleaning and beaches or maintenance of roads. Throughout tourist tax municipalities are able to pay for these costs.

The tourist tax is often different in each town or city. That's why some of our hostels have a higher tax than others.
