I have a holiday booked with Airtours on a Thomas Cook flight. (airtours is part of Thomas Cook group). I have confirmation that the visa/tourist card is included and that I pick this up in the UK but trying to understand the leaving tax from Cuba. As I understand this is now paid before you go through the airline. I booked in January and the changes to the leaving tax came into place in May. I have been told this tax is either part of the booking or paid at the airport in the UK before you depart for £17. Can anyone confirm the process for the leaving tax when flying from UK, with Thomas Cook?
