HOLIDAYS to Spain will cost the average family £500 more because of PCP testing requirements, warns Hosbec
The hotel association for Benidorm, Hosbec, has warned that while new regulations requiring all travellers to Spain from November 23 to present a negative PCR test may help control the spread of coronavirus, it’s not going to help the country’s already flailing tourism industry.
Hosbec said in a statement: “Although these new demands respond to the serious health situation that we are going through in what is surely the maximum peak of the second wave of the pandemic that affects Spain and all the countries around us, the truth is that it is not a measure that contribute positively to tourism, and especially in the Valencian Community.”
The hotel association pointed out that a family of four could expect to pay an additional £480 to comply with testing regulations for their trip. If people fail to comply, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Arancha González has indicated that “serious and persuasive” fines of up to €6,000 could be handed out.
“With this scenario, there is no tourism that can be reactivated.”
