'A limit of six alcoholic beverages per person will be offered every day, and these drinks will only be distributed at lunch and supper.'

Holidaymakers from the United Kingdom may encounter restrictions on the quantity of alcohol they can consume when travelling overseas.

Customers travelling to Spain have been informed that new laws have been implemented in the sunny European country. According to the Daily Star, this is part of a local crackdown on inebriated British citizens who are causing problems for local authorities.

The Balearic Islands, which include the major tourist destinations of Ibiza and Majorca, have implemented restrictions against all-inclusive vacationers. An abundance of alcohol frequently accompanies these kinds of vacations.

On the other hand, Gamblers would be limited to six drinks a day under the new restrictions. They will also be offered exclusively during lunch and dinner hours, with clients limited to three drinks each meal.

Magaluf, a popular tourist destination for British tourists, is one of the sites where the regulation has been implemented. It has also been implemented in several sites on the island of Ibiza.

Customers of Thomas Cook were notified of the regulations through email. "Please be warned that the Balearic Government has issued a regulation on a new restriction for the All-Inclusive meal choice," the travel firm said.

"A maximum of six alcoholic beverages can be offered per person each day, and these drinks will only be served at lunch and supper (three each). Please be advised that there are new restrictions on All Inclusive in Magaluf, El Arenal, Playa de Palma, Mallorca, and Sant Antoni, Ibiza."

The Balearic Islands ' government has prohibited pub crawls to make matters worse for visitors seeking to enjoy some sun, sea, and beer. Additional restrictions include banning the selling of alcohol in stores between the hours of 9.30 p.m. and 8 a.m. and prohibiting the advertising of boat parties in particular regions.

"We want British visitors - we don't want this sort of tourism," said Iago Negueruela, the Balearic Islands' tourism minister. The importance of British tourism to our islands cannot be overstated. We agree with the British government that certain photographs of British visitors are humiliating.

"We want to put an end to inappropriate behaviour. We'll beef up the police presence and inspectors in these places, and we'll have zero tolerance for tourist excesses."

According to Thomas Cook, who spoke to the Daily Star: "Alcohol consumption is restricted in certain sections of the Balearics. We want to make sure that our customers know this when they book."
