Christmas Spends in Ibiza

A detailed analysis of the Christmas spend per person in Ibiza and the Balearics

A detailed analysis of the Christmas spend per person in Ibiza and the Balearics has just been released by the Spanish equivalent of the consumer organisation. Your average Ibicenco will spend €851 this year in the festive season. Well behind the figure of €965 in Madrid and below the mean figure of €858 for all Spain.

The statistics were further broken down into different categories giving the following results

Category            Ibiza €                 Spanish €

Presents             254                     252

Lottery               130                     134

Food                  230                     232

Entertainment      237                     240

The stats put the Balearics in 7th position out of the17 provinces of Spain. Oddly enough, the Catalans, who enjoy the same tight-fisted reputation as the Scots were the second biggest spenders in the country – miles ahead of the Extremadurians who were left propping up the table with a spend of only €800 per person.
