Travel insurance is recommended and most package holiday providers state that all passengers must have the correct type of travel insurance before they go on holiday. Please ensure that you are covered for illness & injury whilst abroad, theft and also cancellation of your holiday.
All UK residents can apply for an EHIC card free of charge and it is important that you bring with you on holiday.

Look after yourself
The weather can be extremely hot during the summer months so make sure you drink enough water, however do not drink the tap water as it has a high mineral content and can make you ill.
Magaluf can be full on so try and pace yourself when out drinking. If you drink too much this could be dangerous or could ruin your holiday.
