Following the recent statement from the Scottish Government to introduce a bill to allow local councils the discretion to charge the UK’s first tourism tax, ETOA (European Tourism Association) has announced the completion of its 2019 review of European tourism taxes in over 125 destinations in 26 European countries.

Currently, 9 out of 28 EU member states – many of them in Northern Europe – do not charge tourism taxes. These countries are: Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Ireland, Latvia, Luxembourg, Sweden and the United Kingdom.

However, the top three visited countries in Europe: France, Spain and Italy have all introduced a range of charges.
