VERY IMPORTANT NOTE - NEW SPANISH STAY TAX - Hotels may charge you a tax during your tour which is beyond the control of Edwards Coaches and is entirely at the discretion of each hotel.
SPANISH STAY TAX - The Spanish Government has introduced a stay tax levied on tourists. It would appear that many municipalities will be implementing this tax, with it already being introduced in the Barcelona and Catalonia Area. Due to the municipalities not advising at present if they will all be introducing this tax, we are unable to provide you with any further information on how much this tax will be per person per night. We do believe that it will be broadly ranging from 0.5- 1 per person per night. This amount must be paid direct to the hotels.
