EasyJet have issued a warning to Brits who have booked package holidays at specific resorts in Ibiza and Mallorca.

Anyone attempting to travel to the Spanish islands who has booked an All Inclusive stay via the budget airline will be given a six-drink limit a day.

EasyJet said: "Due to a change in Spanish law which affects certain resorts in the Balearic islands, alcoholic drinks are now limited to three per person at lunch and dinner as part of the all inclusive basis."

The Balearic government passed the law on drinking during 2020 and has also banned happy hours, pub crawls and two-for-one drink offers.

The Balearic government hopes that this will limit extreme drunken behaviour that affects residents of the Spanish islands.

Advertising party boats in certain areas is also banned and alcohol cannot be sold in shops between 9.30pm and 8am.

Holidaymakers are advised to check rules before booking as only certain areas of the islands are affected by the laws.

This comes after the government announced that Covid tests for fully vaccinated travellers returning to the UK will be scrapped from 4am on February 11.
