How do i find out the tax on an airline ticket

  ronalddonald 19:56 08 Jul 2009

Ive been lookin around for some flights to Cairo i just want to know how much is the tax rate as the web sites are excluding the taxes.

Is the tax as the same as VAT or is it a different type of tax.

Thank you all for your help.

Im sorry if this is a dumb question as i haven't been on a aeroplane since 1990

If you proceed as if to book evveryone I,ve ever used adds the tax as it goes along before asking for payment.

I know what he is saying,was just wondering why he would want to know the amount of tax.Does anyone check the tax when they book a flight?

Yes I want to know the total price I,m going to pay.

if its a business flight do you think you can claim back tax? if so he might want to know how much it is for that reason?

if it,s business you claim the whole amount as an expense.

yeah if you work for a company but you can't if you're self employed. you'd want to know how much it would cost your company and obv. that would be net.

I am self-employed Airline tax is not a seperate entry the only amount that needs to be seperate is the VAT for my VAT return.
