What are "taxes and fees?"
For ticket orders, the term "Taxes and Fees" means that we collect sales tax of 6.5%, which is remitted to the state of Florida or other applicable states if required. Also, when we list an amount as "taxes & fees" on the site, that sometimes means a tax recoupment charge. When we contract with our supplier partners, oftentimes we are subject to sales tax and the sales tax is passed on to you our customer. Therefore, what we're collecting from you is a tax recoupment charge that is equal to the amount we expect our travel suppliers to charge us. For example, when you go to Walt Disney World's website, the ticket prices are listed prior to charging the 6.5% sales tax that will be added to all ticket transactions, including when we purchase tickets from Walt Disney World for sale through our website to our customers.
Unless otherwise noted, prices shown for travel packages are in USD for one adult and if the travel package includes a hotel, based upon double occupancy. Prices are subject to change based upon your choice of travel dates, number of travelers, departure city, and your choice of hotels or other items, and may require a minimum stay. Amounts listed in the "Taxes and Fees" line consist of the amount that we expect the relevant suppliers to bill us for any applicable taxes, governmental fees, and other charges, as described below. For ticket orders, the term "Taxes and Fees" means that we collect sales tax of a minimum amount of 6.5%, which is remitted to an applicable state if required.
