  How is the tourist tax calculated?

The eco tax ("impuesto del turismo sostenible") is levied on Balearic Islands since 01/07/2016 on all overnight stays in tourist accommodations, as there are hotels, holiday homes, cruise ships (see table). Children under the age of 16 years are exempt from the tax.

The purpose of the Tax for Sustainable Tourism is the compensation of the so called carbon footprint caused by the tourism activity on the islands.

Passengers of cruise ships docked in any port of the Balearic Islands, regardless of the number of hours of stay in transit, are subject to the application of the tax. Cruise passengers whose ships have their base port in the Balearic Islands are exempt from paying the tax.

See table for rates (* +10% IVA).

There are two possible discounts:

1) 75 % discount on above rates for stays in low season (between 1st of November and 30th of April).

2) 50 % discount on above rates (or on the reduced low season rate) from the ninth day onwards, for stays of more than eight nights in the same establishment.
