According to the bosses of the travel agencies Avila and the transporte discrecional por carretera (FEBT) the sale of excursions by tourists visiting the Balearic Islands has fallen by more than 50% in the last 5 years
According to reports on the Spanish news website Ultima Hora the FEBT is quoted as saying the situation has affected the income of the companies while Aviba has said the situation is caused by the low purchasing power of tourists who come to the Islands:
It is thought that now only around 1 in 10 tourists decide to book an excursion
An increase in the number of tourists who now rent cars is also a factor in the decline of organised excursion bookings.
