Starting January 1, Greece replaced the fee for staying in tourist facilities with a new fee, for resistance to the climate crisis, in the amount of 50 cents to ten euros per day, depending on the type of accommodation and the time period of the year.
According to the ministerial decision published in the Official Gazette of Greece, the fee will be paid by the guests at the end of their stay and applies to daily use per room or apartment, and will also apply to AirBnB accommodation.
During the tourist season, i.e. in the period from March to October, the fee is 1.50 euros for hotels with one and two stars, for rooms for rent and for accommodation through AirBnB. For three-star hotels the fee will be three euros, for four-star hotels it increases to seven euros, and for five-star hotels and villas will amount up to ten euros.
In the period between November and February, the amount of the fee will lower, starting from half a euro for hotels with one and two stars, for rooms for rent and for accommodation through Airbnb, 1.50 for hotels with three stars, three euros for those with four stars and reaches up to four euros for five-star hotels and villas.
