"Our craving for the sun-drenched mediterranean island seems to have been immensely – until now. "
"major tour operators are seeing a change in the travel patterns and many holidaymakers choose other destinations. "
"the Tui is one of the companies that pull down on the capacity in Mallorca. "
"– We draw down the capacity between 25 and 30 per cent from different departure points to the island of Mallorca. It is for that we ask our customers where they want to travel, and we customize our range after it, " says Adam Györki, communicator at Tui. "
"Turkey is rising in popularity"

"Ving is a travel agency which is the biggest in Mallorca, and although they have drawn down on the trips."

"tourist Tax can affect"

"In July 2016, introduced to Mallorca a tourist tax in order to reduce tourism on the island. It means that there is a tax when you pay your accommodation. The price is set by the number of nights and standard of accommodation. "
"If the tourist tax has affected the decrease in demand for travel to Majorca is unclear, but according to Adam Györki, it can have a certain impact. "
"– It is baked into the price, of course. When choosing where to ride so looking at what you get for your money. If you find that you can get an equally good experience at a better price at another destination so it is natural, if you choose it."
