The Spanish Balearic Islands announced the possibility of free travel for the whole of 2023. Moreover, the reason for such generosity is the desire to reduce the number of cars on the islands and transfer travelers to public transport. True, there is one thing, but it is still unknown whether this measure will affect tourists, and if it does, then how much.
So far, according to the British The Sun, the preliminary information is as follows: in order to use free transport, you will need a transport map of the Balearic Islands. Its owners will be able to travel both by bus and by train without spending a dime. And this will affect all the islands – Ibiza, Mallorca and Menorca. But the details on how to get such a card and whether tourists will be able to get it have not yet been announced.
There is also a “fly in the ointment” in this scheme: car rental prices on the islands have increased this year by 300% and amounted to 130 euros per day. In the future, prices are expected to rise even more. In addition, we recall that the authorities of the islands unequivocally stated that “cheap” tourists – basically, British “alcoholists” on the islands are not needed and a tough fight will be waged against them.
