All you need to know about the Tourist Tax
Your islands. Your Holidays. Your contribution.
What's that tax about?
Since July 1st 2016, the Tax for Sustainable Tourism is levied on all overnight stays in tourist accommodations on the Balearic Islands. Thanks to your contribution, we are able to make major investments to compensate the territorial and environmental impact of tourism on Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera.
The first and most important purpose is the protection, preservation and recovery of the environment. This means, for example, improving protected natural parks and strengthening the conservation of natural ecosystems and native fauna and flora.
Thanks to the tax revenue, we will also be able to invest in promotion of sustainable and low-season tourism: If more people come to visit us in autumn, winter or spring, we can create more jobs. To achieve this, we could recover walking and cycling routes and improve waymarking, for example.
Another purpose of the tax is the recovery and rehabilitation of historic and cultural heritage. If we repair historical buildings and archeological sites, we can make them accesible to you, our visitors this gives you the chance to get to know our culture and history.
Promoting scientific research projects that contribute fighting against climate change or that are related to tourism will allow us to maintain the islands just as they are today: surrounded by a clean and healthy sea and with a sound environment. It will also help us to improve and modernize even more everything we are currently offerning to you, our visitors.
Training and jobs
Improvement measures for training, the creation of qualified jobs and a higher employment rate in the off-season are among the objectives to be achieved with the help of tax revenues: For example by means of a more varied vocational training offer.
