Martin Brackenbury.

Martin Brackenbury, Chairman of the International Federation of Tour Operators, writing in Bulletin today states that if the Balearic government goes ahead with its controversial tourist tax other competing holiday destination will benefit. He forecast a drop in demand as Majorca will be more expensive than other holiday destinations. One of the beneficiaries could be Turkey. Brackenbury claims that the proposed levy does not pass the simple tests of a good tax: “it is not neutral, equitable or efficient.” The tourist tax has already caused plenty of controversy within the tourist industry.
