From 1 January 2018, travelers visiting Greece will need to pay an Overnight Stay Tax which has been introduced by the Greek Ministry of Tourism and aims to enhance the State’s revenue in the context of the current fiscal adjustment programme. This will be collected from travelers when they get to their accommodation.
The tax works out between 0.50 - 4 Euros per night. The amount you’ll pay will depend on the official rating of your accommodation. The specific amount will be dependent on the type of accommodation you’ve booked, as set out in the table below:
Types of Accommodation
Euros/Night of stay
Mid - High Season (01/03-31/10)
Euros/Day of stay
|5 Star Hotels||4|
4 Star Hotels
|3 Star Hotels||1.5|
|1-2 Star Hotels||0.5|
|Apartments - all key categories||0.5|
The amount travelers will pay is based on the official rating of the accommodation they have booked, according to the local Tourist Board classification.
Travelers will be asked to pay the tax when they check-in at the accommodation, this can be paid by cash or card.
