THE Secretary of States for Tourism, Joan Mesquida, admitted yesterday that the holiday market is “still too complicated” to start making predictions about how the peak summer season is going to perform.

Mesquida said that here in the Balearics, it appears that the German market is performing slightly better that the British but, he said, consumers in the region's two main markets are preferring to wait until the last minute to book in the hope of grabbing late special offers.

For the moment, international tourism figures for Spain are down by ten percent on last year, but the Balearics is faring better than most other Spanish destinations and a late surge in bookings is expected once the schools break up for the summer holidays in Britain and Germany.
