Introduction of Tourist Taxes – Majorca, Ibiza, Minorca and Malta

Anyone going on holiday to Majorca, Ibiza, and Minorca this summer will be asked to pay a Tourist Tax (known as ECOTASA) directly to their hotel on departure. (Effective 1st May 2016)

The Balearic Government will be charging €2.00 per person per day in 5 Star Hotels during High Season, €1.00 per person per day in all the rest of Hotels/apartments during High Season. Children under 16 years are free. There is a 50% tax reduction during the Low Season. Stays over 9 overnights also receive a 50% reduction. This Ecotasa is supposed to be charged by the Hotels directly at reception but this is still pending. These costs are subject to change.

The Maltese Government have introduced an environmental tax (effective immediately) and will be applicable for all adult guests staying in hotels and other accommodation on the island. The tax will be €0.50 per adult per night, capped at a maximum of €5.00 per adult per stay.

The tax will be collected directly by the accommodation and remitted to Government. This tax also applies to any accommodation that was booked before the announcement of the Eco Tax.
