Easyjet has issued a warning to people travelling to some Spanish resorts about a new limit on drinks – including on all-inclusive stays.
According to the Liverpool Echo, anyone trying to book an all-inclusive trip to some of the Spanish islands is told: “Due to a change in Spanish law which affects certain resorts in the Balearic islands, alcoholic drinks are now limited to three per person at lunch and dinner as part of the all-inclusive basis.”
That means you’ll get a maximum of six drinks per person per day, after which you can still drink but you’ll be expected to pay. The new laws also prohibit the sale of alcohol in shops between 9.30pm and 8am and the advertisement of pub crawls and party boats in certain areas.
The laws were introduced in 2020 but are only now attracting widespread attention due to the two years of suppressed travel demand amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The Balearic Islands tourism minister, Iago Negueruela, said at the time: “We want British tourists. We don’t want this type of tourism.
“British tourism is essential for our islands. We share with the British government the view that some images of British tourists are embarrassing. We want to put a stop to bad behaviour.”
The laws apply to some parts of Majorca and Ibiza, but not all regions, so travellers are encouraged to check before they book.
