What is a departure tax? Is it part of my airfare?

Departure Taxes

Overseas airports often require the payment of a departure tax to leave. This fee cannot be paid in advance, and is not part of your ticket. The fees are accepted in local currency. Ask your hotel when checking out (or your travel agent in advance) what the departure tax is, then make sure to have adequate local money left.
