Currently the flights to Cape Verde are heavily directed by Thomson towards all-inclusive holidays, however with more hotels being opened and more flights being put on, flight only costs have started to decrease considerably and are now very competitive with other destinations. As of July 2016, First Choice were offering a batch of flights from as little as 168 GBP return to Sal.
As of January 2017, the rental law in Cape Verde changed to stipulate that all rental income is taxed at 10%. This applies to short-term holiday lets (weekly letting) and long-term residential letting.
