Alcohol won’t be so inclusive on holiday

BRITISH holiday-makers on all-inclusive packages in parts of Spain are in for a huge shock, because free alcohol is set to be banned on party islands Mallorca and Ibiza

The Balearic Islands Government is set to crack down on boozy, all-inclusive holidays there with new legislation.

It comes after a series of laws, which were introduced on the islands recently, in a bid to control unruly tourists in areas such as Magaluf.

The new rules suggest that holiday-makers must order and be served drinks from a waiter, for which they will have to pay, and

free drinks in mini-bars will also be done away with.

The new law won’t just hit tourists, either, because hotel staff will have to change the way they operate.

All-inclusive hotels will have to register the business with the government, so they can be monitored appropriately.

And for hotels to be granted a licence, 70% of guests must be served efficiently, in an attempt to tackle overcrowding and long queues.

Meanwhile, the authorities are taking a strong stance on plastic waste by banning single-use plastic cups and plates, which all-inclusive resorts depend on.

Although it is not clear when the changes will come into practice, they will not be introduced before the end of the summer.
