Earlier this week, a furious British holidaymaker claimed his £240 all-inclusive trip to Majorca was ruined because of Spain’s tough new binge-drinking crackdown in its Balearic Islands that limits tourists to just six free drinks a day.

Security officer Jason Walker, 42, says he was ‘angry’ and ‘upset’ after discovering there were restrictions on his free booze voucher after landing in the Mediterranean island for a three-night birthday trip.
He described his astonishment at finding that the new decree limits the number of drinks on his all-inclusive holiday was limited to six – three at lunch, and three at dinner.
The regulations, announced by the Balearic Government in January this year, also bans the sale of alcohol in shops between 9.30pm and 8am, as well as pub crawls, two-for-one drinks offers and happy hours at certain spots in Magaluf, El Arenal and Playa de Palma in Mallorca and Sant Antoni de Portmany in Ibiza.
And advertising party boats and balcony jumping could attract a £50,000 fine, in a bid to clamp down on public drunkenness and clean up the image of resorts like Magaluf after it was rocked by scandal in 2014 when a British holidaymaker was filmed performing sex acts on 24 men.
