2020 Amsterdam Tourist Tax: All there is to know!

July 13, 2023

How will the Amsterdam Tourist Tax affect you?

On January 1st 2020, Amsterdam has implemented a flat fee of €3 per person, per night for any visitor spending the night in the city, in addition to the current 7% city tax. This means you will have to part with a bit more cash, but don’t let the new tax get you down. In many ways, it’s a good thing – paying a bit more tax will help make sure the city is clean and safe. The extra funding will also be put towards maintaining the city’s infrastructure, like bridges and canals.

How to pay the new Tax?

Please be aware that €3 per night will be automatically added to your reservation total on all bookings made from January 1st 2020.

If your booking was made prior to January 1st 2020 you will be asked to pay the new Tourist tax upon arrival at ClinkNOORD. The current 7% city tax is covered in your reservation.

Things to mention:

  • Children under 16 are exempt from the new Amsterdam tax
  • AirBnB, hotels, campsites and hostels will all have to charge the new tax
