Due to water charges increase, spiking up of Resort Rates in Boracay, possible

If there will be an increase in the rates of hotels and or resorts in Boracay, this will just be minimal.

This is the Department of Tourism or DOT-Boracay’s view in relation to the anticipated increase on the tariff or the water services charges which will be implemented by the Boracay Island Water Company (BIWC).

According to DOT-Boracay Officer in Charge, Tim Ticar, in business it is given that if there is a rise in costs on the basic necessities of an establishment, this will also be added on the rates offered to the costumers.

That is why the increase of hotel and resort rates is also expected to follow.

However, this will just be minimal and will not be heavy for the tourists.

Also basing on what the OIC knows, the water charge increase by the BIWC won’t be that costly.

This matter has previously caused worry to the stakeholders, knowing that their businesses will be affected, as well as the community.

More so, that the BIWC had confirmed that their new tariff has been approved.
