Tourist service providers

Tourism partners are important players in the tourism industry as they provide individual services that together form the overall holiday product. These services are referred to as the tourism service chain or tourism service bundle and include various aspects such as information and advice, booking, transport, accommodation, catering, local entertainment, return journey and aftercare. Each step in this chain is crucial to the traveller's tourist experience and contributes to a smooth and enjoyable holiday.


Tax to promote tourism (TPT)

Municipalities with a high tourism value added can levy a tourism promotion tax.
Companies and self-employed persons who derive a high benefit from tourism through their economic activity are liable to pay the tax. The revenue is primarily used for market development.

The municipal regulations are a prerequisite for levying the tourism promotion tax.
