Since the same questions come up with every inquiry and booking, we are hereby writing a small summary of the most frequently asked questions and will also update them weekly.
On the Balearic Islands ( Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera ) reports for the past 24 hours ( as of 21.10.2021 ). The health authority of the Balearic Islands reports for today, Thursday:
Balearic-wide, 58 government-performed PCR tests have been positive in the past 24 hours (15 fewer than yesterday). There are 8 new deaths related to Corona. A total of 78 people infected with Corona are in hospitals in the Balearic Islands, including 20 patients in intensive care units.
In Ibiza, 9 positive PCR tests were reported today (3 less than yesterday). There are 211 infected people in domestic quarantine (4 less than yesterday). In addition, there are 19 patients in clinics, unchanged. Of these, 3 patients are still in intensive care.
Formentera again reports no positive PCR test today. There is 1 person in home isolation (same as yesterday).
Thus, 231 actively infected persons are reported on our two islands today (4 fewer than yesterday).
Incidence values for the four islands – unfortunately they are calculated incorrectly.
In the following incidence values for the islands it must be noted that the authorities count the cases per 100,000 registered residents. However, due to the island visitors, the number of people actually on the Balearic Islands is much higher. Island visitors are also counted in the cases of infection. However, the increased total number of people on the islands is not taken into account for the calculation. Therefore, the values look wrong and more drastic than they actually are.
Incidence value from the Balearic Islands Health Authority
The following incidences for the past 14 days were announced by the Balearic Islands Health Authority – as of today, October 21, 2021:
Ibiza: 114.6 (yesterday: 108.0)
Formentera: 50.4 (yesterday: 67.2)
Mallorca: 55.0 (yesterday: 51.7)
Menorca: 29.3 (yesterday: 31.4)
Balearic Islands total: 60.6 (yesterday 57.5)
Incidence value from the Spanish Ministry of Health in Madrid
The Spanish Ministry of Health releases, one day delayed, 7- and 14-day incidences for the Balearic Islands as of the evening of October 20. The 14-day value differs from the Balearic internal calculation because, among other reasons, apparently the information transmission is not identical.
The values are:
14-day incidence Balearics total: 47.59 (yesterday: 47.50. 14 previous days: 66.90).
7-day incidence Balearics total: 18.44 (yesterday: 16.70. 7 previous days: 29.14)
Corona Ibiza News 2021
Questions: 1, What if Spain has a new lockdown and you cannot enter?
Answer 1: According to international travel law, the service cannot be provided and 100% of the costs must be reimbursed!
Question 2: What happens if my country of departure has a lockdown and what is the legal situation in the event of a travel warning?
Answer 2: Normally the owner of the villa cannot assume any liability here, as he can provide the service booked in his country. Nevertheless, last year all cancellations were rebooked free of charge with our agency or booked the money back on request, although many owners were legally able to withhold the money or demand the full amount. But we and the owners want satisfied customers. This case is now taken over by the new corona travel insurance from the Hansemerkur, even with the travel warning and many owners can also set their own cancellation conditions on request, which are fair for everyone.
Question 3: How will the situation be with Corona in Ibiza in summer 2022?
Answer 3: Unfortunately we are not clairvoyant. But at the moment all have open and the Club´s prepare for 2022.
Question 4: Can the cancellation policy be adjusted?
Answer 4: We can, after consultation with each individual house owner, adjust the general cancellation conditions individually. We only ask about this when you have found a suitable property, but generally all owners are ready for it.
We recommend taking out travel cancellation insurance and corona travel protection for Germany, Austria and Switzerland with the insurer Hanse Merkur so that you are covered in the event of illness and other unforeseeable failures (including Covid and travel warnings).
