On 1 June 2009 the way that resort tax is levied changed. The tax is now applied on a direct basis instead of as a fixed amount!
This now reflects actual visitor numbers.
Over 90 % of France’s winter sports and summer resorts have introduced a direct resort tax system.
Resort tax is collected directly from the holidaymaker by the accommodation provider, who repays this tax to the local council. Resort tax is payable all year round, from 1 January to 31 December. The tax revenue is put back into the system on the basis of the dates in force.
And don’t forget: the tax revenue generated is spent on all the tourismrelated initiatives.
