How to Obtain a Tourist Rental License in Ibiza

If you want to invest in a property in Ibiza for tourism rental purposes, you must carefully carry out thorough research and plan. It is essential to take caution – as you will see, obtaining a tourist rental license is not easy. 

In 2012, a new law was passed, the ‘Ley de Arrendamientos Urbanos’, or LAU (Urban Leases Act). Under this law, short-term holiday rentals were allowed as long as you met the standard requirements. However, later in the summer of 2017, the law changed significantly and getting a permit got a lot tougher. Nowadays, many properties in Ibiza are not eligible for tourist rental licenses. 

To help you, we have created a short guide that provides all of the information you need to obtain a tourist rental license in Ibiza. However, seeking legal advice comes highly recommended as laws and regulations are constantly changing. Ensuring everything is correct and legal can save you hefty fines and unwanted situations.


Is my property eligible for a tourist rental license in Ibiza?

If you’re renting your place for less than a month, you need a tourist rental license. Ibiza’s tourist rental licenses tend to be for detached houses. However, it doesn’t mean all detached houses will get a tourist license. All requirements must be met, no matter what. 

If you want to buy an apartment to rent out for holidays, you should be aware that a tourist licence may not be accepted. Licenses were not previously allowed in shared buildings (therefore apartments), and even though this regulation has now changed and apartments are now theoretically permitted, in reality, they must first be approved by the local authorities’ board.


Ibiza has a set of minimum requirements that properties must meet to receive a tourist licence.  The following list outlines the main requirements, although there are other factors to consider related to any given property:

  1. There must be an occupancy certificate for the property, known as the ‘Cedula de Habitabilidad’.
  2. Residents’ quality of life is the primary concern. The property must be located within a "tourist zone". These zones are based on environmental data, population statistics, and planning criteria without compromising an area’s management capabilities or resources.
  3. When a previous sanction for a severe breach of a holiday rental licensing law exists, a home cannot be rented for vacations. Naturally, once the sanction is fulfilled and the property’s legality is restored, the property may again be considered for vacation rentals. Therefore, when looking for a tourist license, you should request a ‘certificado de inexistencia de infraccion urbanistica’’ to ensure no sanction exists.
  4. Before the house can obtain a touristic license, it must be at least five years old, and during those five years, it must have been used as a private residence.
  5. The property must also possess an energy certificate. Specifically, the construction of a house must meet the F rating for buildings constructed before 31/12/2007 and the D rating for buildings built after that date.

Rental licenses are now available for apartments, but only if the board of owners approves. Additionally:

  1. Licenses must be renewed every five years.
  2. Renters must be informed in writing about the house rules and must respect them.
  3. Renters who do not respect the regulations must vacate the property within 24 hours.
  4. Insurance must cover potential damage the clients may do to community property.
  5. The community must have a 24-hour service number.

How do I apply for a tourist rental license to rent my property in Ibiza?

To obtain a tourist license from the local council, applicants must submit the following documents: 

  1. A "responsible declaration" ("Declaración Responsable de Inicio de Actividad de comercialización de estancias Turísticas en viviendas") which meet the criteria for tourist rentals in Ibiza
  2. Plans and documents related to the property
  3. Ownership documentation
  4. The number of guest beds must not exceed the number of people legally allowed to occupy the property according to the certificate (cédula).
  5. The local council issued a certificate proving that the property is located in a holiday-letting area (tourist zone).
  6. Proof that the property meets the legal requirements for holiday rentals
  7. Once you have paid the application fee, you will receive a preliminary rental license number.

For more detailed information and to proceed with obtaining a rental licence, please visit Bufete Frau Legal Service and Specialist for Real Estate Law for more information, legal advice and support with filing your application.


How long will I need to wait before I can start renting my property in Ibiza?

Upon submitting your tourist rental license application, you confirm that your property meets all the required criteria. Once you have applied, you will receive a preliminary rental license number and you can immediately begin renting out the property. An inspector will carry out all the relevant checks at a later date. After this, if there are any inaccuracies, omissions, or falsifications in the application statement, the registration will be cancelled, and holiday rental activity will be suspended immediately. Once a rental license number (whether preliminary or final) has been allocated, it must be used for advertising on portals like Airbnb so that guests and authorities can check whether a holiday rental is legal.

IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: Since February 2022 there is a 4-year moratorium on the "creation of new tourist beds" which effectively means a hold on all applications of new rental licences in the Balearics. This means that while you are free to submit the paperwork and fees, they will not be processed for (at least) the next 4 years and no preliminary numbers will be issued. You can read more on this subject in the following article:
Balearic Tourism Law: Moratorium of up to four years to build new tourist accommodation in the Balearic Islands (diariodemallorca.es)


What happens if my new property or villa in Ibiza already has a rental license or application at the point of purchase?

Those who wish to purchase a property with a current tourist license need not worry about reapplying. However, you should still check everything thoroughly. Approved licenses will always have an ETV certificate (Estancia Turistica en Viviendas). 


What costs are involved when obtaining a tourism rental license in Ibiza?

The price for a rental permit is currently €600 for the application plus the following per bed:

One bed: €4.300,00
2 beds: €8.643,00
3 beds: €13.029,40
4 beds: €17.459,70
5 beds: €21.934,30
6 beds: €26.453,70
7 beds: €31.018,20
8 beds: €35.628,40
9 beds: €40.284,70
10 beds: €44.987,50
11 beds: €49.737,40
12 beds: €54.534,80

    What’s on in Ibiza this Summer 2022

    All of a sudden, everything got a lot more exciting! Travel vaccination passports and health tests are no longer required for entry into Spain, you do not have to wear a mask in most circumstances, dancing is finally allowed, and everyone’s smiling. Ibiza is back to being as vibrant as ever, and it feels awesome.

    Last month’s International Music Summit (IMS), which provides panels for the electronic music industry gave the feeling that this year is destined to be bigger and better all around. You can literally sense it in the air, everyone is ready for Ibiza 2022, and the tourism industry is already in full bloom.

    Summer 2022, Ibiza is the perfect place to be if you’re looking for a vacation with a great atmosphere and pure freedom. Besides the nightclubs opening for the first time in two years, the island also offers a variety of cultural activities, natural landscapes, and of course, some wonderful places to eat, so let’s see what Ibiza has to offer in 2022.


    Ibiza summer 2022: IMS Ibiza 2022

    Ibiza nightclubs are open – get your party event calendar

    Ibiza’s nightclub scene has already begun its opening season two weeks earlier than usual, with venues such as Ushuaia, Pacha, and being the first to kick-off following the IMS 2022 finale. Ibiza is set to have its longest clubbing season to date, which could extend as far as November. And, of course, this year’s line-ups are looking to be of an excellent standard too!

    If you want to keep on top of your Ibiza party schedule, you can take a look at the Ibiza Spotlight event calendar, which has day-by-day updates on all clubs and DJs, with ticket and VIP table information. Updates are made constantly throughout the season so be sure to keep checking in.

    If you like a little party but attending large-scale clubs is too intense, then check out the latest nightclub from Las Dalias, Akasha.  Open from Friday through until Sunday until 5 am, the club hosts a more relaxed atmosphere where its concept intends to generate a community spirit among the people who visit.

    The classic things to do in Ibiza – things that you won’t want to miss

    There is no shortage of cultural classics to experience in Ibiza and those that never go out of fashion either. The famous Las Dalias Hippy Market is always a popular island tourist attraction and home to more than 200 stalls, selling handmade clothes, jewelry, and home decor that can be enjoyed casually roaming around over drinks and freshly baked pizza or street food – all while listening to live music and local DJ’s in their tranquil psychedelic setting. Additionally, the San Juan Hippy Market is a great experience that is known to attract a more authentic crowd with locals and tourists alike flocking out into the streets to enjoy a relaxing Sunday morning.

    Perhaps you prefer to stay away from the crowds and be out on the open waters enjoying mother nature at her finest. Well, in every case a day out at sea will never disappoint. There are a number of experienced boat charter companies based in Ibiza, from where you can create your own day trips, using a qualified and knowledgeable skipper, and set sail to explore all the hidden beaches, coves, and unique spots the island has to offer. There is no doubt in our minds that it is worth considering planning a trip to Tagomago and Formentera, two of our favourite neighbouring islands. We recommend checking out our collaborator Say Yachting, a low-emission boat and yacht charter company on the island that supports our ethos for sustainability.

    The top recommended dining experiences in Ibiza

    The majority of vacationers in Ibiza enjoy luxurious and relaxing Mediterranean evenings with great food and a few nights out to let their hair down. With elegant sea and sunset views, open-air rooftop terraces, and some excellent concept cuisine, there is no shortage of incredibly stylish restaurants to choose from.

    Besides the usual favourites like Amante, Bambuddha, and Cotton Beach Club, Ibiza has seen an influx of some great new restaurants and bars opening in a variety of locations around the island.

    Under Michelin Star (12) Chef, Martin Berasategui the BLESS Hotel takes guests on a gastronomic journey at the new Etxeko Ibiza. The ultimate dining experience that celebrates the joys of dining, the ancient flavours of San Sebastián, and the most sublime products of the Cantabrian Sea and the Mediterranean. 

    LayLah Ibiza is a restaurant and lounge bar, combining food, music, heart and soul, where globally inspired flavours are showcased through a menu of sharing plates featuring dishes such as roasted cauliflower with tahini & green chilli, fresh grilled artichokes with Parmesan, spiced chicken crispy cigars, and white fish skewer with ginger & lime salsa.

    Last but not least, we recommend Boodiou Ibiza, a cocktail bar and French restaurant in the heart of Ibiza Town, serving fine dining and enriched sharing plates of French cuisine.  Artfully decorated with contemporary pieces and decorations, this small boutique restaurant will not disappoint.

          Inside Ibiza’s most Exclusive Villas and Luxury Homes

           Ibiza’s most Exclusive Villas and Luxury Homes

          Ultimate luxury can often be associated with living or vacating in a lavish home that can offer exceptional quality to its guests.

          Defining Exclusivity & Luxury in Ibiza

          When referring to the term ‘luxury’, ‘exclusive’, or ‘prestige’, we must account for the versatile considerations of the term itself. Defining such terminology is relative to the client in question and therefore may vary from person to person. What defines ‘luxury’ for one may not be the same for another!

          However, when defining the exclusivity of properties here on the white island of Ibiza, we tend to refer to those homes that are at the very top of the property market, whether purchasing or renting. Those residences that hold in excess of a million price tag, offer expansive grounds, strike curiosity in style with high-end fixtures and furnishings or boast of phenomenal panoramic views of the island. These incredible residences prove ‘luxury and exclusivity’ are matched to rare sophistication, size, location and an expensive price tag.

          Some of the most exclusive homes with luxury amenities will also often offer fully serviced property managers and household staff, to ensure the luxury of these properties goes beyond the villa itself. Thus, proving these homes are more than just unique and unparalleled when compared to the general market, but also require high levels of maintenance, care and hosting of its visitors or owners by skillful and trained personnel.

          In terms of location, Ibiza is divided into five regions, Eivissa, Santa Eularia, Sant Antoni, Sant Josep and Sant Joan. Each one of these regions offer a different culture and this can be equally reflective of housing style and property values.

          Although each area certainly provides a variety of luxury properties, the majority of higher-end properties on the market are predominantly located in the popular municipality of San Josep, quickly followed by Santa Eulalia, with San Joan boasting of the highest value per square metre, due to a very low supply versus demand scenario, when referring to sales.

          Within the municipalities of San Jose and Santa Eulalia we find a collection of private urbanisations and secure gated communities such as Roca Llisa, Can Rimbau, Vista Alegre, Can Furnet, Cala Conta 33, Sabina Estates and The White Angel, where a vast majority of these status homes are to be found.

          History of the Exclusive Property Market

          The property and tourism market have swiftly developed over the past 50 years. Landing on the island during the late 1960’s and early 1970’s offered a more rural and humble environment, as the island of Ibiza began to see the very start of its real tourism.

          As tourism moved into the late 1970’s and early 1980’s, Ibiza saw an influx of celebrity clientele. Famous artists like Freddie Mercury, George Micheal, Grace Jones and Jimi Hendrix frequented the island and were known to visit Pikes Hotel and Las Dalias regularly.

          Ibiza adopted a clientele of artists, bohemian lifestylers and affluent youth looking for an alternate lifestyle. This significant tourism development, cultural change and visiting of high-profile celebrities, moved the island to reach a far higher standard than ever before.

          By the late 1980’s, Ibiza started to become a point of reference for the ‘discotech’ culture, where many travelled from across Europe for its lively nightlife and club scene. This was supported by the attraction for nautical activity, where motor-boats and super yacht chartering became a huge industry, and continued to push the travel economy into a first-class destination.

          Spectacular beaches, great weather conditions, the surge of beach clubs and chiringuitos, regular DJ’s, plus ever-evolving creativity and development continued to increase the island’s global recognition; which in turn, bought even more luxury clientele by the mid 1990’s and onwards, including footballer’s, movie stars, high profile businessmen and influencers.

          Ibiza has experienced nothing less than a tremendous transition from farmland, locals and many Arabic residents, to an island known across the globe for its beauty, exclusivity and innovative social and nightlife scene. Naturally, as the attractiveness of Ibiza increased and the island’s potential skyrocketed, so did the real estate market, whereby generating exclusive holiday and second home properties was high on the agenda.

          Land and property development opportunities quickly became available, where famous architects, investors and property agents set themselves in motion and established renovating old finca farmhouses into artisan vacation homes (for those affluent bohemian lifestylers), to building brand-new Miami standard, white complexes and contemporary exclusive homes (with the focus on the more fashionable and private luxury clients).

          Ibiza Old Town later being declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco in 1999, and the ‘Natural Parc de Salines’ including much of Formentera also being listed as protected as a Natural Reserve, only added to the island’s cultural and natural wealth, whereby property market values and the travel economy has been on the up ever since.

          And, of course there are some pretty spectacular properties out there!

          We take a look through the keyhole, inside some of the most exclusive villas in Ibiza.

            Holiday villas with the 5 best sunsets in Ibiza

            Why is Ibiza one of the most famous holiday destinations in Europe?

            Sunset, dusk, twilight… are some of the names we give to an event as ephemeral as the sunset.

            Sunsets mark very significant moments in our lives: ‘the afternoon when we fell in love; the long summer days with our family; the magic of a sunset to the sound of drums; that dinner of friends that began with a burning red sky’… moments in which we feel very lucky and grateful.

            But if there is one place in the world where you can enjoy this natural wonder, it is Ibiza, with almost 275km of coastline, 300 days of sunshine a year and a peaceful and happy rhythm of life.

            In this blog we want to share with you five of the most special places where you can enjoy an unforgettable sunset. Besides, we have thought about you because in each of them you will find a selection of our fabulous holiday villas.

            The Prestige Team has participated in the vote to draw up the ranking that we present to you below.

            Nº 5 San Antonio, Ibiza

            The Paseo de San Antonio is one of the most fun and unique places on the island. It offers the possibility of water activities such as jet-skiing, jet-boating, flyboarding or parasailing, during sunset. Yes, believe it, because here you can be 50 meters high and be the king of the world! This spot is also very famous for its music and good atmosphere, this is where Café del Mar was born, a real symbol in Ibiza.

            Less than 15 minutes away are two of our holiday villas, with swimming pool and fantastic views: Casa Sandra and Can Trillo.

            Nº 4 Cala Benirrás, Ibiza

            If you are lucky enough to be in Ibiza on a Sunday, you cannot leave without visiting Cala de Benirrás, where the authentic essence of the 70’s comes alive for a few hours and fills the sunset with music and percussion. A hundred people play their drums bidding farewell to the sun, while a large crowd dances and gets carried away by the good vibes and the hippie spirit. Some of the most impressive vacation villas in our catalog are in this area: S’Ermita, Can Quince, Can Rio and Can Pep de sa Guaita.

            Nº 3 Sa Caleta, Ibiza

            What if you want to make the sunset even more special? All you need for this is a sailboat! Cruising the waters offshore caressed by the sea breeze and feeling so close to the sun that you can almost touch it, this experience is one of the most romantic we can recommend. There are different companies that offer a wide range of boats and rentals adapted to your needs. We can help you, if you dream of living a unique sunset. But in addition, we have a selection of villas for rent located a few meters from the sea, so you can simulate the sensation of sailing: Can Cristina and Can Oasi.

            Nº 2 Cala Conta, Ibiza

            They say Cala Conta is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Here we give you the reasons: crystalline waters, fine, almost white sand and incredible views; they make it an earthly paradise. We highlight the gastronomy of the area, the Bullit de Peix and the paella are the star dishes. At the Sunset Ahsram beach bar, you can drink a cava sangria while you celebrate the sunset with music and good atmosphere.

            We recommend some of our holiday villas, located very close to this famous destination: Can Lib and Can Masia, ask us about them.

            Nº1 Es Vedrá, Ibiza

            And at number 1 is the islet of Es Vedrá, a magical enclave located in the southwest of Ibiza. Although you are not allowed to climb this mystical rock, which is almost 400 metres high (because it has been part of the Nature Reserve since 2002 due to its high ecological value), we recommend you climb the Es Savinar Tower, commonly known as the Pirate’s Tower, and enjoy the unbeatable views! Some of our most charming villas are just a few minutes away: Can Pelat.
