Passengers To Pay Landing Fee Tax In Guernsey From 2017

Passengers travelling on board cruise ships to St Peter Port, Guernsey next year will have to pay a £1 landing fee to come ashore.

In addition, ships anchoring off the port will have to pay an anchorage fee of 5.9p per gross tonne and a new higher cap of £1500.

It is anticipated that this will see revenues from this new anchorage fee will rise by as much as 25%. This is in addition to the £4m in revenue seen in 2015 from cruise passengers coming ashore in Guernsey.

St Peter Port is a popular destination for cruise ships operating on mini cruises from Southampton or on 7 night cruises to Spain and Portugal.
