Apart from living on one of the prettiest Spanish islands, residents of Mallorca are entitled to cheap travel between the Balearics and to the mainland.
The government announced a 75% discount on flights between the islands in June which means as a resident you should be able to pick up flights for around €20 plus fees.
With the maximum airfare costs currently fixed at €90, travelers will pay no more than €30 in total for a one-way flight. Residents will continue to receive a 50% discount on air travel to mainland Spain. This discount only applies to domestic flights.
This means buying a property here holds many more benefits than buying on the mainland. Whether you choose to live in the chic city of Palma or one of the beautiful beach resorts, this opens up travel between the islands for you to have holidays. Think Ibiza, Menorca, Formentera for a mini break! It also means that traveling back to the mainland cheaply will open up Malaga and its onward destinations to you.
In order to qualify for this, you will need to be on the electoral roll and get a Residence Certificate from the Town Hall. Of course, when you buy a property here this is something you have to do so you will already be set up to obtain discounted domestic flights. Someone just looking at a second home may not realise this is available to them. The discount applies on national and international carriers including Iberia and Easyjet.

Choosing Mallorca therefore as a place for your second home makes sense.
