Re: Pay extra for Gift Aid?

Maybe that's all they are saying there. We all pay the same price, but when the tax is claimed back it adds up to the higher price,

No, you really do pay more for Gift Aid admission. As explained by the National Trust here, you pay an additional 10% voluntary contribution, which then allows them to claim back standard rate tax on the whole admission price paid. The reason is that charities have two options for admissions to qualify for Gift Aid: the 10% extra voluntary contribution approach, or to offer free re-admission for 12 months to Gift Aid admissions. The NT have clearly gone for the former.
