The tourist tax has been introduced to the commune of Antibes Juan-les-Pins in 1973. It is intended to improve the tourist reception of the municipality. The tourist tax applies to any person who is housed for a fee and who is not domiciled in the municipality and does not have a residence in the municipality where he is liable to the tax. It is collected by the hosting company which gives it quarterly to the Public treasure.
The rates of the tourist tax are fixed for each type of accommodation and according to the classification, per person and per overnight stay. The tourist tax is mainly dedicated to the financing of tourist promotion activities conducted by the Tourist Office. This resource also helps to support tourist events organized in summer to make your guests' stay more enjoyable..
The 2023 Finance law passed by Parliament and which has been published in the Official Journal on 31st December 2022, introduces an additional tourist tax to improve low-carbon transport in our territory. The purpose of this tax is to finance the future essential railway line for the inhabitants of the Southern Region, but also for leisure and business tourists. This major railway project will facilitate travel in the region and reduce the carbon footprint and improve air quality.
