Country Information for Mallorca
Enjoying a Mediterranean climate, Mallorcan summers can reach a balmy 25°C, whilst in the winter months – temperatures lay low at a cool 10°C. Nature lovers will enjoy the shoulder seasons (Easter-June, September-October), where days are mild and there are fewer tourists.
Spain is on CET (Central European Time) which is 1 hour ahead of the UK.
Spain’s currency is the Euro (€). ATMs are widely available in towns and resorts, and major credit cards are accepted in many hotels and restaurants. For small purchases in Mallorca, cash is king.
Visas are not required by EU passport holders – to be on the safe side, visitors should have a passport with at least six months validity remaining, plus plenty of spare pages.
Citizens of the EU receive free or reduced-cost state-provided health care cover with the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) for medical treatment that becomes necessary while in Spain. Please note that carrying the EHIC card does not negate the need for fully comprehensive travel insurance.
You should contact your GP around 8 weeks prior to travel to check whether you need any vaccinations or other preventative measures. The Foreign Commonwealth Office and NHS Fit for Travel websites also carry up-to-date medical information.
We can arrange Discover the World insurance which covers you for any included activity. Please refer to your price guidelines for the current costs. If you choose not to take our insurance please ensure you notify us of your insurance company, your policy number and 24-hour contact number. We advise taking out insurance when you pay your first non-refundable deposit.
Insect bites can be common, especially near water, and we advise the use of insect repellents. Long trousers and long-sleeved clothing are recommended to cover exposed skin, particularly at dawn and dusk. Our Mallorca Health and Safety Guidance has further information on staying safe.
