New Balearic Islands Tax

From July the first 2016 visitors to any of the Balearic Islands will have to pay a local tax when checking in to their holiday accommodation.


The new “local Tax” is aimed at adults over 16 years as children under 16 will be exempt. It will need to be paid in Euros when you check in to your hotel or apartment and there is a sliding scale of charges. The top rate will be €2 per day per adult for those staying in a 5-star or 4-star luxury hotel. €1.5 per day per adult for those staying in a 4-star or 3-star luxury hotel. €1 per day per adult for those staying in a 1, 2 or 3-star hotel. For those who like staying in apartments the rate will be €2 per day per adult for those staying in a 4-key or 4-key superior apartment. €1.5 per day per adult for those staying in a 3-key superior apartment. €1 per day per adult for those staying in a 1, 2 or 3-key apartment. For those that love rural hotels then the charge will be €1 per day per adult.


For winter stays (Nov 1 until April 30th) the rate will be around 50% of the summer rate. This also applies to long-term holiday makers who will have to pay from the 9th day onwards.


The purpose of the Tax for Sustainable Tourism is the compensation of the so called carbon footprint caused by the tourism activity on the islands. By paying the new tax, both foreign visitors and locals who stay in a tourist accommodation of the Balearics will contribute to the preservation of the islands.
