The Balearics Eco-Tax or Sustainable Tourism Tax, as it is also known as, is a government approved levy that applies to both foreign visitors and locals who stay in tourist accommodation in Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza. The tax was imposed on 1st July 2016 to keep the islands in ship shape condition, funding sustainable tourism projects to preserve them for future generations.
Unfortunately it does mean there is a tiny bit extra to pay to holiday to these beautiful destinations, but it is all for a good cause. Enabling people to return to the Balearics and enjoy all that these wonderful islands have to offer.
The cost of the Eco-Tax varies depending on what accommodation you are staying in. However, for those of you who’ve already booked or are looking to book your holiday, we calculate this for you and include it in the total cost of your holiday. You can now see the Eco-Tax breakdown when searching for your villa holiday. Keep an eye out for the (?) symbol and all will be revealed when you hover over it, or touch it if using a mobile or tablet.
We’ve taken the hassle out of paying it when you get there, so you can enjoy your holiday right from the off.
