Balearic Government to Introduce New Car Hire ‘Eco Tax’8th February 2013
In a measure to raise funds, the Balearic Government has announced that it is to introduce a new ‘Eco Tax’ which will apply when hiring any vehicle in the Balearic Islands from April 1st 2013. The additional charge will be applied locally when customers collect their hire vehicle.
The new tax is set to come into force from 1st April 2013 and whilst the exact fees are yet to be confirmed, it is estimated that the amount charged will be between 2 – 8 Euros per rental day depending on the vehicles’ level of emissions.
For a one week hire, this could see the cost of car hire in the Balearic Islands rise by a minimum of 14 Euros, to a maximum of 56 Euros.
In a bid to assist our customers who hire in the Balearic Islands, we will include this information both on our website and on car hire vouchers.
We will update this post with further information as it comes to light.
