Car Hire Eco Tax in the Balearic Islands Postponed

4th June 2013

Plans announced back in February to introduce a car hire Eco Tax on car rentals in the Balearic Islands have been postponed.

The tax which was due to be introduced by the Balearic Island Government, would have seen the cost of hiring a car increase by up to €56. These plans have now been suspended indefinitely which comes as welcome news both to holidaymakers and car hire companies alike.

The move came after pressure from The Association of Balearic Travel Agents as well as a number of other tourism leaders, who will continue to campaign to prevent the tax from being introduced at all.
