Dean, speaking from Fuengirola on the Costa del Sol, said: ” I hope you can get the word out to holidaymakers, as many will know, Spain’s police since the pandemic has looked for every opportunity to fine both locals and holidaymakers, for instance, mandatory mask-wearing became a ‘cash cow.’
“Now, it’s passports or ID cards, many holidaymakers have been fined, and according to the police, they plan to step up checks; further, holidaymakers should carry their passports at all times, whilst out on the streets of Spain.
“The fines have ranged from 100 to 200 euro per person.” Dean finished.
