Tourist Taxes: possibility for the host to setup the right taxes calculator and charge the amount to guests during the online check-in. We cover it for both classified and non classified accommodations.

For example in Paris we are able to replicate in the online check-in this formula:

Nightly rate (no fees, nights only), divided by number of guests, multiplied by 0.05 = X

If X is > or = to 4, then the nightly city tax rate applied to each adult is 5€

If X is >4 we take 25% (15% +10%) and multiply by number of adults and number of nights. The result will be the nightly city tax rate.

Also, the tourist taxes tool can be used in a ton of other countries, you just have to check once you jump in the software if the current set-up we offer covers also the taxes requirements in your country.

If you actually have your accommodations in a country not listed above and authorities require you to provide them the guests data or you want to use taxes feature but our current setup is not covering your use case, please don't hesitate to contact our support team at support@chekin.com and we can let you know when we could work on a new development to cover legal compliance or tourist taxes in your area too :)
