Tourism in both Turkey and even Egypt are in recovery and with Brexit in a good way, so fear the Spanish hotels on the hotspot the islands of Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza, that it will be a tough economic year ahead.
It writes the british the Daily Mail.
It is not least because of the tourist tax, imposed on visitors to pay. According to the rules, should tourists pay up to 30 dollars per day, staying on the islands.
A large part of the travellers, who come to the Spanish holiday islands are british, and therefore Brexit particularly damaging.
According to the hotels they have already experienced the truth of that thing upon his season has moved at least six weeks back because of the above.
They see it necessary, therefore, that the disputed tourist-tax which was first introduced in 2015, and then doubled to 4 euro (about 30 dollars) per night in 2018 - will be withdrawn and abolished.
- These decisions could not have been more inappropriate, as the uncertainty that threatened our sector, could already be seen, sounds like an overall opinion of the Hotel Business Federation of Majorca (FEHM), the Hotel Business Federation of Ibiza and Formentera (FEHIF) and Hotel Association of Menorca (Ashome).
- Brexit-the process in the Uk has a direct impact on the reserves of one of our main markets, in the period from January to november 2018 registered a decline in visits to the islands of 1.5 percent, Menorca alone at minus ten percent, and in 2019-season it becomes even more pronounced.
They are still waiting response from decision-makers.
