The Balearic Islands doubled the tourist tax

The Balearic Islands is a Spanish archipelago of 5000 km², located in the western part of the Mediterranean Sea. The largest islands in its composition are Majorca, Ibiza, Menorca and Formentera. In 2017, the archipelago received 13.7 million tourists, becoming the second most visited by the Spanish direction after Catalonia (18.2 million).

From May 1, 2018, tourist fees on the islands doubled, amounting to 4 euros per day per person. It is also accompanied by a VAT of 10 cents. It is noted that the collection will affect passengers of cruise ships.

Tourist tax on the archipelago was introduced in July 2016. Thus, local authorities raise funds to deal with the consequences of the colossal influx of tourists.

From November 1, the rates for staying on the island will change. Tourists stopping at hostels will pay 1 euro per day; passengers of cruise liners – 2 euros, guests of three- and four-star hotels – 3 euros, guests of five-star hotels – 4 euros.

Tourist tax does not apply to children under 16 years of age.
