  • Hotel category 5 stars: €3.00

  • Hotel category 4 stars Superior and 4 stars: €2.50

  • Hotel category 3 stars Superior and 3 stars: €2.00

  • Hotel category 2 stars, 1 star and uncategorised: €1.50

  • Non-hotel accommodation: €1.50

  • Landlords letting private rooms: €1.00

  • Campsites, farm holidays and refuges: €1.50
