THOMAS COOK has issued a new warning for Brits heading to all-inclusive resorts across Spain this summer.
New rules in place in Ibiza and Majorca mean there is a cap on the amount of alcohol Brits can drink, even if they have paid for an all-inclusive package.
Only six alcoholic drinks can be enjoyed, with three at lunch and another three at dinner.
Although this wouldn't stop anyone from drinking in other venues, it would mean an all-inclusive break becomes less valuable.
Thomas Cook has since warned Brits with package holidays booked to the popular resorts in Spain.
They said: "Please be advised that a decree has been issued by the Balearic Government on a new restriction for all-inclusive meal option.

"There is a maximum of six alcoholic drinks per person per day that can be served and these drinks will be provided only during lunch and dinner (3 each).
"Please be aware that Magaluf, El Arenal, Playa de Palma in Majorca and Sant Antoni in Ibiza, there is new restriction on all-inclusive."
The six-drink rule also doesn't apply on the smaller Canary Islands like La Palma, La Gomera, El Hierro, or La Graciosa.
There will also be a ban on shops selling alcohol between 9.30pm and 8am, and a crackdown on advertising which encourages the consumption of alcohol.

The law was brought in in 2020, but travel companies have echoed the rules now as thousands of Brits book holidays to the Spanish islands.
Hotel owners are said to be worried and claim tourists are already shunning their establishments and opting for those outside the zones.
One Brit tourist recently claimed the new six-drink rule "ruined" his holiday to Majorca.
Jason Walker, 42, who took an all-inclusive trip to Majorca to celebrate his cousin's birthday earlier this week, was left "angry" and "upset" by the rules.
He paid £240 for his three-night trip with travel operator Love Holiday, which he assumed had entitled him to as much food and drink as he wanted.
But when the security officer arrived on the beautiful Mediterranean island, he was stunned to find out that there were limits on his free booze consumption.
There are a number of other Spanish laws you need to be careful of as well.
