Should we tax tourists who go camping?

The Welsh government has said that people staying in hotels, holiday lets and even campsites could face a new levy.

Should people pay the government to pitch a tent and enjoy the great outdoors?

makes sense, places have to cover the costs of the impact of tourists. Increased litter, increased policing. And money can help make the area to be even better of a tourist spot.

When the government say is 'it's cutting taxes', what it really means is it's cutting taxes for corporations to shift the burden of that taxation onto the public who will face more and more stealth taxes like this.

Well yes, as it's not there land and they'll be investing in local communities.

I go to Devon every year camping average £280 for 5-days with family members, you get clubhouse and swimming pool. If we done the equivalent in Port eynon ( Gower ) it will be £340 plus tourist tax no clubhouse no swimming pool. I'll stick to going to Devon.

No. Tax the super rich, tax the corps, tax extreme profits.

Makes sense if the money is then used to lessen the impact of tourists in the area, cleaning up litter etc.

Yep let’s price them out of Wales

No. Take you own food and drink and don't spend money on their shops, because that's where most of it comes from, holidaymakers.

The tourist areas are already making most of their money from tourists and that should more than adequately cover the costs of tidying up after those visitors. If the businesses profiting aren’t contributing enough that’s another issue. This is authorities trying to milk people.

It’s difficult enough to afford holidays right now and many are staying in Britain cause that’s all they can afford especially camping or in a vehicle. People often spend what money they have on holiday anyway so it’s takes away from businesses. I think Wales are making a mistake

This would be a fee, not a tax, and yes.
In reply to @JeremyVineOn5
No no no! There's plenty of other places to go....
