The tourist tax or as its official title the eco tax doubles in price today until the end of October. I tried to find on line the actual prices but non of the holiday companies mention it. I even spoke to a friend that works in a travel agents last month, she knew nothing about the price doubling. https://majorcadailybulletin.com/news/local/2018/04/30/51731/double-nothing-for-your-balearic-holiday.html

The price list is as follows

- One, two, three star hotels: Two euros.
- Three star superior and four star: Three euros.
- Four star superior and five star: Four euros.
Ten per cent IVA (VAT) is added to the total amount.

Yeah don't forget that's per person, per night!

So a 10 night stay at a 4 star will be €40 + €4 tax each, €44 x 2 = €88 payable on arrival at hotel.

No thanks. smilie evil

IMO, they are trying to attract a "different clientele" it seems with this tax, but in most cases this will not stop the younger Punta Ballena crowd from heading to Magaluf. scratch It will make the likes of us on MF think twice about holidaying on this beautiful Island in the future. nono

Well this year, basically because of the tourist tax, I've been to Tenerife, going on Sunday to Benidorm, and am going to St Lucia in September. All without tourist tax payable on arrival.
Mallorca now gets a token 3 nighter in October.
Up to them ain't it. If we'd done our normal 3 trips to Mallorca I'd have had to cough up about €250 in tourist tax and I disagree with the principal of it so have gone elsewhere.
The real kick in the teeth of it to me is that it's a compulsory tax, yet they then have the cheek to put IVA (their equivalent of VAT) @ 10% on top of it. How can you have a 'luxury' tax on top of a mandatory tax??

Its a disgrace, they say they want to turn it into a nicer place, attract better clientele, this is not the way really. But they have said the tax has been put to good use by doing improvements and projects around the island, doesnt work for us Im afraid. This has put the Cala Dor holiday right up the spout lol, its ridulous prices to start off with. I can get A/I in Cyprus/ Benidorm for the same price as B&B - H/B in Majorca.
