Spain warning to British travellers as £85,000 fines being handed out by police

By Christopher Harper & Cathy Owen

Holidaymakers have been warned they could risk a major fine if they attend "illegal parties" in Ibiza and Majorca. Fines of up to £85,000 are being handed out to those who attend the parties, which are not allowed but are common across the islands.

The British Embassy in Spain issued a warning to travellers going to the islands due to serious accidents that have taken place. A spokesperson told Birmingham Live : "There have been a number of serious accidents involving people attending irregular commercially promoted parties in villas and private homes on the islands of Ibiza and Majorca.

"Licensed clubs and bars are required to meet safety and security standards, including emergency exits and capacity limits, and to have trained, licensed security staff. Irregular commercial parties may not meet these standards."

The government added: "You should take care of your belongings, ensure you know where emergency exits are located and not take unnecessary risks. Heavy fines may be imposed by local authorities to anyone attending irregular commercial parties."

It comes as the Balearic councillor for the Presidency, Mercedes Garrido, and the president of the Council of Ibiza, Vicent Mari, presented the new regulations that will come into force this summer to put a stop to illegal parties, which have increased "exponentially" in the last two years with the closure of discotheques due to the pandemic, said Marí.

Among the main new features, landlords who rent out properties where these parties are held will also be fined between 100,000 and 300,000 euros, as they will be held responsible for them. Another new factor is that the fines will reach the attendees, who will be fined between 300 and 30,000 euros depending on the seriousness of their infringement.

The Balearics Government is bringing in the rule across the islands, including Mallorca and Ibiza, in a bid to tackle anti-social behaviour from tourists. Thomas Cook is warning holidaymakers about a new 'six drinks a day' rule in the Balearic Islands.

UK holidaymakers on all-inclusive trips will be restricted to six drinks a day, alongside their lunch and dinner. This means they will only be able to have three drinks per meal.

Essentially, the new rule means Brits will not be able to enjoy drinks by the pool. Thomas Cook has now issued a warning to people who have booked package holidays for the upcoming summer season.
