Do you have to pay an exit charge when leaving Diana beach?

pastie,

Just to explain, there is a Departure Tax payable on every international flight ticket leaving Kenya, like most other airport and flight taxes it is normally included in the price of the ticket, however around 5 years Thomson decided to pass the cost on to their customers, presumably as a hidden way of increasing their prices (I bet they didn't reduce them by the tax amount they were now passing on) while making it seem it was the Kenyan Government's fault. So since then Thomson airline passengers have had to pay the departure tax in cash at the airport,

For what it costs see the first page of this thread
