A possible tourism levy is one of the ideas put forward by the Bevan Foundation, a Valleys think tank but no further details have emerged about whether it will be paid by businesses or visitors.
However, the idea has attracted a blunt response from the tourism industry. Val Hawkins, chief executive of MWT Cymru, said: “The last thing we need at the moment is a tourism tax.”

This group engage with 'real experiences' when they choose their holiday destination.
So what do we call 'real' experiences?
We all know that we have stunning scenery and beautiful places to visit - but so do other destinations - so how can we entice visitors to come to Mid Wales rather than going elsewhere?
The project will focus on the characters who visit and live in Mid Wales, and the relationships we form with our guests.
What We're Doing
MWT is promoting our office helpline number directly to visitors on our new VisitMidWales.co.uk website. We have already dealt with a number of enquiries, and made reservations direct (and commission free) to MWT members.
With TIC's reduced opening hours and some closures, some visitors still wish to book their accommodation by phone and we are taking a number of phone calls a day from visitors requesting information.
This is great for our members (and for the region) and we have found our new shortlisting option on VMW particularly useful as we can easily use this to email accommodation details and late availability lists directly to visitors.
