    How do I get a refund if I’m exempt from the tourist tax in France?

    Certain guests staying in France may be exempt from the tourist tax or qualify for a reduced rate. This exemption may include guests who are:

    • Under 18 years old
    • Receiving emergency accommodation or temporarily relocated
    • Occupying premises where the rent is below a minimum threshold
    • A holder of a seasonal employment contract from the municipality

    In order to find out if you qualify for a refund or a reduction, visit the tourist tax website of the municipality where you’re staying, or contact their tax office. The French government also provides a guide to tourist taxes, along with detailed information about the tourist tax, including a search to find location-specific info.

    If you booked your stay on Airbnb in one of the locations in France where we automatically collect the tourist tax, and you determine that you're due a refund, you can request a refund directly from the municipality where the accommodation is located.
