AIRPORT DEPARTURE TAX TO BE CHARGED BY AIRLINES | Debbie's Caribbean Resort Reviews Forums

Friends from Europe confirmed that tax will be included in their air ticket to Cuba this summer. So it looks like we will not have to pay 25CUC tax at airport anymore.

Well I just returned and never paid. My already incredibly low price (air only) just went down more than $50. I love Westjet.

Wonder how Bellagio made out.

I had to pay mine (£17) at Manchester Airport and then they printed my boarding card.

Bumping this back up. We just booked the Memories in Holguín end of November (our only Cuban trip in 2015; better late than never lol) and the TA will cover our exit taxes. In researching this trip I did notice that some TAs do NOT indicate on their websites that the exit taxes are included in the ticket.

Just wondering why that is.

They don’t need to talk about it anymore. Cuba doesn’t collect it and the collection wickets are all closed.Some scams have been reported where visitors are asked to pay an employee who will "Fix" their departures.One less reason to buy VIP, Maybe. Congrats on booking.

I heard today that Sable Island has 86F waters this week. Wanna go for a Resort proposal? Beats Varadero and has Ponies. LOL

I’m not sure about every TA, but most operators (like Sunwing), have just added it to their ever-increasing "Taxes and Surcharges". They don’t itemize what those are, but most of it is fuel surcharges, currency exchange loss, and airport fees and a miriad of other "hidden" fees.

When we returned from Manzanillo at the end of July, the collection booth was still there, but unmanned. No issues at the airport at all. The Sunwing rep was including the information about no longer having to pay the departure tax in her orientation speech.
