Every time I book a hotel online, the price increases by 25% in "taxes and fees" at checkout, compared to the price featured in search results. This does not occur when booking flights (I actually think there's a regulation against it for flights). Is there a website that lets you compare the ACTUAL price of hotels with taxes and fees included, and also lets you book?

  • I think this varies by country - maybe try booking with an EU-based website? (Customer facing sites in the EU have to display tax-inclusive pricing)

  • Yes, a country is needed. VTC as too broad.

With Kayak, when looking at hotel search results, there is a dropdown under Price (circled in the screenshot below). The default is "Nightly base price", which does not include taxes and fees, but you can also select "Nightly + local taxes & fees" or "Total stay + taxes & fees", which accomplishes what this question wants.
