What is the Balearics Eco-Tax?
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 tip top 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.
Is there a minimum age for making a booking?
Yes, we do have a minimum age for making a booking. You must be at least 18 years old to make a booking with us on our website, on the telephone or in person at our office. The person making the booking will become the lead passenger and must travel on the holiday.
Can I book a holiday via the James Villas Travellers’ App?
The App is intended as a holiday companion for customers who have already arranged a holiday with us and has not been designed to search for or book holidays.
Are your villas pet-friendly?
We are sorry, but we don’t operate a pet-friendly villa programme at this time. None of our villa properties allow pets to be accompanied as part of the holiday booking.
