Airport Development Fee

Just out of curiosity, if we've booked a package through Sunset, do we have to pay this?

Just read the small print at the back of the brochure and it says it is included in the price of your holiday?

Any advice?

PS - Happy New Year :)

Thanks, this is what i thought, but wouldnt like to cause any hassle in the airport!

Do you know of any situations where a person has refused to pay ADF as they booked a package?

Why would you need to get the rep to sign flight ticket if this tax is now included in price of package?

Granny had the money in her pocket to pay this yesterday (booked flight only earlier in year so should have to pay). A friend went to pay hers before actually checking in and was told to check in 1st. We checked in, went straight to passport control, no one mentioned not having paid it............ so we didnt. 80 Euros saved.

BTW it took us hour and half from arriving at airport to getting into outside bar so dont cut it too fine to arrive at airport.

I had the same experience as Granny (probably the only shared experience...ha) ..Nobody asked me for the money...so 20 euros for next time !!. Best time to arrive at airport is 60 mins before departure, but don't all do it or it won't work any more .
