EASYJET has issued a warning to Brits visiting some Spanish islands this year.
Travellers heading to the Balearic Islands are warned they will be restricted on the number of alcoholic drinks they can have in their all-inclusive holiday packages.
Brits who book all-inclusive holidays at certain resorts will be limited to six drinks per day – three at lunch and three at dinner.
The Balearic Islands include Majorca, Menorca, Formentera and infamous party destination Ibiza.
As reported in the Liverpool Echo, a spokesperson for easyJet said: “Due to a change in Spanish law which affects certain resorts in the Balearic Islands, alcoholic drinks are now limited to three per person at lunch and dinner as part of the all-inclusive basis.”
Happy hours, pub crawls and two-for-one drink offers are also banned, and shops can’t sell alcohol between 9.30pm and 8am.
The Balearic government has introduced the rule in an attempt to limit drunken behaviour that affects local residents.
The law was brought in during 2020, but the airline has issued the warning as Covid restrictions ease and Brits book holidays to the Spanish islands.
Only certain areas of the islands are affected by the laws, so Brits should check the resorts they plan to go to before they book.
The alcohol restriction is another blow to Spanish tourism, which has suffered hugely throughout the pandemic.

Covid restrictions are still increasing across the country, with a big change from next month.
From February 1, Spain will only permit Brits who can prove they were fully vaccinated against Covid to enter the country.
This means arrivals cannot use a negative Covid test or proof of recovery to enter.
The rules could destroy half term holiday plans for families as many kids between 12 e 17 are yet to be fully vaccinated, meaning they have no other way of being allowed into the country, even if they have evidence of recovery.
There are additional rules in different regions across the country with the Canary and Balearic islands operating under Covid alert levels.
Nightclub capacity is being slashed to just 25 per cent and beaches are limited to 50 per cent capacity, with appointments required for people who want to visit the beach.
A maximum of six people can meet up indoors or outdoors and residents and visitors are not allowed access to spas and saunas.
Under Level 3 as regras, only two people can sit together at a restaurant, regardless of whether they are from the same household.
