The One Stop Touring Shop, which consists of the escorted touring brands, Insight Vacations, Trafalgar and Contiki Holidays, has announced that it will absorb the cost of a new tax being charged in hotels in Florence, as well as a soon-to-be introduced tax in Venice hotels.

The new tax, which has already been instated in Florence, and will commence in Venice from August 23, is charged at a rate of between €1 and €5 per person, per night with the cost dependent on the hotel star rating.


Agents who have customers who are currently confirmed or are planning to book a holiday which includes a Florence or Venice hotel stay with one of the company's brands this year will be exempt from paying the tax.
