    The government of the Balearic Islands is going to introduce a new environmental tax for 2013. The tax will most likely go into effect in April.

    According to information provided by local authorities, this tax is part of a new package of tax increases to be introduced by the Balearic Islands regional government to aid fiscal recovery in the coming year.

    If the government plans are implemented, there will be following amounts charged per rental day and also per driver for following emission levels: an amount of 3.00 EUR for emission levels up to 160g/km of CO2; an amount of 6.50 EUR for emission levels up to 200g/km of CO2; an amount of 7.50 EUR for emission levels up to 200g/km of CO2.

    There will be also a charge for mileage driven applicable, when the number of 350 km is exceeded. It is most likely, that this tax won't be included in rates and customers will have to pay for this at the pick up location.
