Mallorca Tourist Tax (Sustainable Tourism Tax)

Tourist Tax in Mallorca (also known as Tourism Eco Tax-Sustainable Tourism Tax) has doubled during 2018. The tax was first introduced by the Balearic Government in 2016.

The latest Tourist Tax rates, normally paid on arrival at Hotels or Apartment Receptions, have met with disapproval from many guests who were unaware of the increase. IVA at the rate of 10% is also payable on the tax rate. Local businesses worry that this will have a negative effect as tourists will have less money to spend in the resorts and towns throughout Mallorca and the Islands.

Money collected from the Tourism Tax has been streamed into various environmental projects throughout the Balearic Islands of Mallorca, Menorca Ibiza and Formentera. A Commission on Sustainable Tourism was set up to decide together with existing organisations how the money is to be spent each year. The main issues are environmental restoration, improving the quality of tourism offering, improving infrastuctures for future tourism, promotional projects, cultural heritage projects, research, development and the improvement of job quality (including educational aspects) within the Balearic Islands.
