Hotels in the popular Mediterranean country stand on the “Stop”

Hotels in the popular Mediterranean country hit the Stop

The Spanish resort island of Mallorca has issued a warning to tourists that local hotels will be forced to suspend room sales over the next few weeks. Hotel chains are overwhelmed with bookings, Spaniards say. Basically, the mass tourist flow is generated by tourists from the EU countries and the UK, as a result, popular hotels already exceed the 85% occupancy rate. Standing up, they want to redirect excess bookings to less popular hotels, although they are also quite busy. And because of such high demand, hotels are expected to raise prices and increase fees.

“Hotels in Majorca's main resort areas will stop selling over the next few weeks due to strong tourist demand. The purpose of this stop is to avoid occupancy issues and encourage tourists to redirect to hotels with lower than expected occupancy,” says local publication Ultimahora.es.

Moreover, according to the publication, organized tourists fill the hotels – tour operators TUI, FTI, DER Touristik, Alltours, Schauinsland, Jet2 Holidays and EasyJet Holidays agree that all their booking records in Mallorca have already been broken, despite the competition of Greece, Croatia, Turkey and Egypt . Unorganized tourists are also not far behind. As a result, the island's hotel chains “have been overwhelmed with an avalanche of bookings, both through tour operators and online, since the end of May.”

The number of passengers and aircraft in June exceeded the result achieved in the pre-Covid 2019, local media also noted . Among the tourists from where the tourist flow has grown the most are the French and Italians, the British are also growing. The Russian market has expectedly declined – however, we note that Russian tour operators nevertheless offer Spain to tourists – albeit “partially”.

As a result, Spanish experts predict that the summer indicators of 2022 will be very similar to those of 2019. What's more, they could even surpass pre-pandemic levels if last minute bookings continue to be as popular.
