EasyJet warns holidaymakers of tough new alcohol laws in Spain’s Balearic Islands

EasyJet has warned holidaymakers of new alcohol laws in force in some parts of the Balearic Islands.

New rules on the Spanish islands mean everyone will be limited to three drinks per person during lunch and dinner as part of all-inclusive breaks.

This means tourists will be limited to just six drinks a day as part of their package at hotels in certain areas, Liverpool Echo reports.

This comes after the Balearic Islands government implemented new laws to crack down on excessive alcohol consumption in 2020.

Authorities have banned happy hours, pub crawls and two-for-one drink deals at three of the most popular tourist destinations.

Alcohol cannot be sold in stores between 9:30 p.m. and 8:00 a.m., while party billboards in some areas are also prohibited.



EasyJet has reminded passengers of the new rules

The rules came into force in San Antonio in Ibiza and in Playa de Palma and Magaluf in Mallorca.

Anyone looking to purchase more than the daily limit of six drinks at an all-inclusive resort in these areas must pay extra for them.

Reminding passengers of the laws, EasyJet said: “Due to a change in Spanish law which affects certain resorts in the Balearic Islands, alcoholic beverages are now limited to three per person at lunch and dinner as part of the all-inclusive formula.”

Changes to Scotland’s Covid travel policy will come into effect from next month, making it easier for Scots to travel abroad ahead of the summer season.

Fully vaccinated travelers will not be required to take a test within two days of arriving in Scotland, under new rules coming into effect from 4am on February 11.

Scots will still have to complete a passenger locator form while work is carried out on a new surveillance system to monitor the council during the pandemic.
