Mas Blanc and tourist tax

In Mas Blanc we offer a tourist apartment for rent and obviously the tourist tax affects us (from 1st of November 2012). The tax is not included in the rent (when we sign a contract) or in the payment by Airbnb, so it should be paid as an extra, at arrival. If you wish to see more information, please check the official website of the Generalitat de Catalonia in English, en français, auf Deutsch, en español o en català.
