May the 31st, 2024 – The Austrian publication “Osterreich” has provided its readers with the typical costs of Croatian holidays, and how to make things cheaper.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, the Austrian publication begins its text with an extremely tempting description of the Croatian Adriatic, as reported by Večernji list.

“A turquoise blue sea, dreamlike nature and fascinating culture promise an unforgettable holiday in Croatia. In addition, a rich variety of offers awaits you in Croatia. Therefore, it’s no coincidence that this country on the Adriatic is counted among the most favourite summer hotspots for Austrian tourists”.

They then wrote an introductory explanation of why Croatian holidays are set to be ten percent more expensive this year than they were last year.

“The currency change from the kuna to the euro had a strong impact on prices in Croatia – which increased by ten percent. An even higher increase than last year, at least as being forecast by tourism experts, shouldn’t happen,” the Austrian publication writes, before adding:

“All this obviously hasn’t remotely put tourists off. About 21 million of them arrived in the “Adriatic Paradise” in 2023, and half a million overnight stays by Austrian tourists were also recorded among them. This year too, many Austrians want to spend their summer holidays in Croatia again. Therefore, it’s advisable to know how much money must be calculated for one week’s holiday in that country”.

As the Austrian publication writes, “Croatian holidays cost an average of 945 euros per week and per person, excluding air transportation costs. Calculated per day, this means approximately 135 euros per day for the budget, including accommodation in a three-star hotel and meals in local restaurants. The price includes the rental of a small vehicle as well as participation in some of your favourite activities.”

The list below also lists a slightly cheaper variant of Croatian holidays, which includes a stay in a hotel with only one or two stars and meals in fast food restaurants. “If you opt for public bus transportation and free activities, you can spend an unforgettable break in Croatia for a mere 42 euros a day,” according to Osterreich.

The Austrian publication then offers its readers an approximate calculation of how much this year’s summer holiday on the glorious Croatian Adriatic could cost them.

“A luxury annual holiday in this Adriatic paradise starts somewhere around the price of 285 euros per person per day, and then goes up. This means staying at a four-star hotel, the daily enjoyment of a three-course menu, access to a rented car and participation in privately organised activities,” the newspaper pointed out. What Osterreich particularly draws attention to is that prices in Croatia “vary greatly depending on the season”.

“Croatia is the most expensive during the summer months. Croatian holidays in the pre- and post-seasons are slightly cheaper, but just as beautiful,” the paper notes, noting that “Split and Dubrovnik are among the most expensive destinations” on the Croatian Adriatic.

However, judging by the reservations so far and the extremely good start of the spring season, Croatia will clearly be a “hit” tourist destination this year as well. Alongside other Europeans like the Germans and the Brits, Austrians love Croatia and continually return each and every year.
