TOURISTS in Spain have complained about being stranded for hours at airports, restaurants and bars.
Holidaymakers have been forced to wait hours for their transfers in Majorca, as demand can't keep up with the number of planes landing at the same time.
One person tweeted: "11:30pm. Queues to leave the arrivals terminal at Palma airport.
"Hundreds of people waiting for a taxi or a bus to. It's only June 2nd."
Someone else said: "Nearly three hours waiting to get set off to our hotel to start our holiday. Disgusting. Embarrassing!"
But the airport demand has resulted in a lack of taxis in the city centres.

Tourists have said that the taxis aren't around for them after restaurants because they want more lucrative fares from airport transfers.
The shortage of cars will also mean prices will go up due to huge demand.
Figures show that pre-pandemic there were 120,000 cars in Majorca – this is just 3,500 now.
Baleval President, Antoni Masferrer told local media: “The situation has changed and marketing has become very expensive because demand is very high and there’s not enough cars.
