Palma.—The British market is the most dominant in Majorca at the moment as recent package holiday sales figures have shown that month on month sales have risen by around four percent since Christmas and demand is still very healthy for Majorca and the Balearics in general.

And, apart from holiday makers getting better value for money this year with tough resort competition driving prices down, it has also been revealed that the average price of a package holiday to Majorca this year is eight percent cheaper than last year.

Yesterday, a Bank Holiday in UK, see the first real influx of British holiday makers to Majorca and UK industry sources have told the Bulletin that the British market is going to remain very strong until well into October and perhaps beyond if hotels stay open longer. The big concern now is that some resorts, in particular Magalluf, Palmanova and Santa Ponsa could suffer problems with hotels being over booked as tour operators fight for extra accommodation to meet demand.

Spanish travel agents are also concerned because the struggling domestic market is getting pushed out by the expanding overseas markets.
