Spanish Balearic Islands Hike Tourist Taxes

Visitors to Spain's Balearic Islands will have to pay higher levels of tourist tax for their stays from 2018, the region's Government has announced.

Since July 1, 2016, every tourist over the age of 14 visiting the region has had to pay the per-night tax on a sliding scale depending on the class of the accommodation.

The four largest islands are Majorca, Minorca, Ibiza, and Formentera.

Under the latest plans, the tax on stays in camp sites or hostels will be increased from EUR0.50 (USD0.6) per person, per night to EUR2.

Meanwhile, the tax on stays in four-star and five-star hotels will rise from EUR2 per person, per night to EUR3 and EUR4, respectively.

After nine nights, the rate of tax drops by 50 percent. The tax is also halved during the low season months, from November to March.
