Wrong to Tax Tourists? - DigiTourShow Daily #157

In Scotland, we have a huge debate on whether a tourist tax should be introduced.

Taxing travellers who visit your destination, I feel, sends the wrong message. Yes, I understand that we need to pay and maintain for the facilities and infrastructure that they use but to me this is the wrong approach.

Our customers are being penalised for the cuts made to our local governments public spending, causing the issues this tax supposedly solves.

These are our valued customers who collectively spend huge sums of money with us already so should they really have to pay twice?
