Spain introduced a new tax for tourists

The new tax in the form of airport tax has been imposed by Spain. According to UNN, tourists who have chosen this country for vacation will have to pay extra up to 7 euros. The state has made such a step in order to reduce the budget deficit from 8.5% to 5.3%.

Some airlines have started charging the fee even those passengers who booked tickets a few months ago. Appropriate notices are sent to people by email.

Association of European travel agencies has calculated that, on average, this fee has grown by 18.9%, reaching the increase of nearly 200% in some major airports.
