Spain’s Balearic Islands hit 13.4% Increase in Bookings Last Week


The Balearic Islands of Spain have confirmed 13.4 percent more books of tourists within a week, as a travel platform reveals.

According to the reports, a 151.4 percent increase has been recorded in this week’s bookings. Compared to the previous year, around 2000 percent more than in mid-March of 2020 when the COVID-19 hit.


A survey conducted by the recent Spanish municipalities displays that 20.45 percent of bookings are being made over two months in advance, while 15.46 percent are made about three months.

With these figures, the Balearic Islands account for 15.88 per cent of bookings in Spain, behind Andalusia and Catalonia.

However, the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) continues to call on Britons with passports older than October 2018 to align their travel documents with new EU requirements.

“If you are planning to travel to an EU country (except Ireland), or Switzerland, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Andorra, Monaco, San Marino, or Vatican City, you must follow the Schengen area passport requirements,” FCDO explains, also noting that for those with expired travel documents have to apply for a new one before travelling.

The same clarifies that a passenger’s passport must be issued less than ten years before the entry date and valid for at least three more months before travelling back home or elsewhere.

In addition, Portugal, Spain’s neighbouring country also known for tourism, is having a promising season, as a recent study from Rightmove revealed that tourism spots in Portugal have surged by 24 per cent in the last year and a further 25 per cent in the last week as the summer holidays are approaching.


In addition, Porto Santo, Comporta in South Lisbon, and Vila Real de Santo António in Algarve are the top destinations for a summer holiday in the country.
