Are you a regular Balearic Island holidaymaker? You should probably look to get your next all inclusive holiday trip to this beautiful Spanish region booked in quick, due to strict new rules which are set to soon be announced.
Read on to discover more…
New legislation is set to be initiated by the Balearic Island Government in an attempt to regulate what is being labelled as ‘uncivic tourism’.
Exact details are not known as of yet, but it is suggested that a ban on the unlimited supply of alcohol could be imposed or even the prospect of only serving alcoholic drinks with meals.
That too is still unknown at this time, though Bel Busquets, vice-president of the Balearic Government, announced recently that a proposal would be put forward to the industry within the next 10 days.
More information will be released in the aforementioned proposal, though a full ban on all inclusive holidays seems unlikely given tourism provides a huge source of revenue and the potential increase that is to arise from the new tourist tax guidelines.
It is thought any ban would relate to alcohol restrictions, rather than all inclusive holidays in totality, though again, full details are not yet known.
Talks are set to commence prior to the main holiday season, with the emphasis on keeping all inclusive holidays a tempting option to tourists, whilst not negatively impacting the quality of life for residents in the local area.
Are you planning to visit one of the Balearic Islands on holiday this year?
