April 19, 2016: Balearic Islands (Spain) - A new tourist tax.

As from July 1, 2016, the Balearic Islands will apply a tourist tax to any visitor who is over 15 years. The tax varies depending on the accommodation category: from € 0.50 (for bed and breakfasts, pensions, hostels, and campingsites) to € 2 (for hotels of category 4 or more, holiday rentals of 4 keys, and cruises) per night and per person in peak season (from April to October). It is € 1 per night and person for hotels of 2nd and 3rd category, 1 to 3 key holiday rentals, and agro-tourism. In low season, the rate is reduced to half, just like as from the 9th day of stay.

Each year, the Balearic Islands welcome more than 13 million tourists.
The new tax will be called "sustainable tourism tax". The Government of the Balearic Islands hopes to raise about 80 million euros of revenues from the tax. It will use them to promote sustainable tourism and to maintain the protected areas. Catalonia has applied a similar tax since November 2012. No other region of Spain has currently such a tourist tax.
