    Would you tell me what the following sentence means? " Rates are NET "


    Hello.

    Here are two sentences below.

    All year rates 650 Baht/Night

    rates are net, not include breakfast


    What I would like to know is that .. when it says " rates are net " does this means " Specific rates includes everything "?



    In other words, does this mean "Tax or other charges are all included in " 650 Baht per night ?

    Suppose I make a reservation.. Do I have to pay 650Baht + @ ( Tax or extra charges) ?

    I have been figuring out what it means but still it makes me confused..

    I've never heard about the term "Net" used as adjective like this. so it confuses me a little bit more..


    Thank you for the time, in advance.

    It means that you pay 650 Baht- it includes any taxes.

    Thank you so much Tdol.

    Can I ask you a couple of questions more?

    1. Does this sentence " net rates or net price " also have exactly the same meaning with " rates are net " ? and can be used interchangeably?


    2. What would be the opposite sentence with " Rates are net " ?
    Is it "
    Rates are gross " ?


    Thank you for your help
