The Mallorca vacation will change fundamentally for party fans after the corona pandemic.

The government bans alcohol flat rates in all-inclusive hotels.

The party vacationers in Mallorca * have long been a thorn in the side of the Balearic Government.

With the legal reform

“Balearic Agenda 2030”

, crackdowns are finally taking place.

This means: The "free" serving of alcohol in so-called all-inclusive hotels is prohibited with immediate effect - regardless of the corona pandemic.

Party vacation history now?

Alcohol flat rates at Ballermann in Mallorca are in short supply

So far, vacationers in the all-inclusive hotels on Mallorca have been able to save a lot on alcohol:

Pay once and drink the rest of the evening free of charge at the hotel bar,

that was the motto.

For this reason, numerous party holidaymakers from Germany and England have been drawn to the Spanish island for years.

This alcohol flat rate is now history

.

As

reported by

Bild.de

, the ban is effective immediately in the regions of

Playa de Palma, S'Arenal, Magaluf and at the "West End" of Sant Antoni de Portmany

.

In this way, the Balearic Government wants to put a stop to the heavily drunk vacationers on the beach promenades as well as fights and other excesses.

Due to the legal reform, alcoholic beverages are now

only available

at the hotel bar

for a surcharge

.

Each drink has to be paid extra.

Only non-alcoholic drinks such as water, juice or lemonade may continue to be offered without any surcharge or limit.

The “Balearic Agenda 2030” also takes on another bad habit among party tourists: the so-called

“balconing”

.

In this relatively new trend, young tourists are climbing from balcony to balcony or trying to jump into the pool from their room balcony.

Furthermore, excursions with alcohol on party boats are now prohibited.

The alcohol may also no longer be sold at below average prices

.

The new regulation should be valid for five years.

Mallorca vacation: This is how the tour operators react to the alcohol ban on Ballermann

Violations of the legal reform threaten the organizers with fines of up to 600,000 euros and a license withdrawal of up to three years, as

Bild.de

continues to report.

TUI in particular has so far sold many party trips to the Ballermann.

TUI spokesman Aage Dünhaupt explains his regret to the newspaper: “This is a great shame for our guests, but we

have to accept the decision

.

Because of Corona we have currently taken party trips out of the program anyway. "Peter Sörgel, head of" Partyreisen24 "says:" This is not a restriction, especially for our programs, as our customers prefer to go to the party locations on the Playa rather than the hotel bars have celebrated.

How the party mile around the Ballermann will recover and who will ultimately benefit from it, nobody can say with certainty at the moment.

For

party trips to Mallorca, we don't see the first possibilities again until the end of this year at the earliest

. ”
