How do I get a refund if I’m exempt from the tourist tax in Italy?
Some municipalities in Italy exempt certain travellers from the tourist tax or allow for a reduction in the amount paid. Exemptions may include children (the age varies from municipality to municipality), residents of the municipality or travellers who are visiting a relative in the hospital.
In order to find out if you qualify for a refund or a reduction, you can visit the dedicated tourist tax page on the website of the municipality where you’re staying or contact their tax or treasury office.
If you booked your stay on Airbnb in a location in Italy where we automatically collect the tourist tax (this article lists these locations), and you determine that you're due a refund, you can request a refund by contacting us. We'll ask you to send us a completed official refund request form.

As required by law, the form you send to us will be shared with the municipality in order to process your request. Refunds will be processed after your reservation is completed.
