Total Croatia News



ZAGREB, Nov 27, 2020 – Ahead of a convention of the domestic tourist industry next week, the Croatian Tourism Association (HUT) has welcomed the decision by the government and the national coronavirus response team to allow hotels and campsites to continue operating, following the latest restrictions aimed at curbing the coronavirus outbreak.

“Fully aware of the seriousness of the health situation, we welcome the decision by the government and the national coronavirus response team for the continuation of work of hotels and campsites. We believe that this is the result of adherence to measures and the highly professional behaviour of tourist workers during the past tourist season when we hosted more than a million guests a day, without any of the guests contracting the virus in commercial accommodation establishments,” HUT director Veljko Ostojic told Hina.

He said that the HUT also supported the announcement by the government of additional compensation measures for hospitality establishments that were ordered to shut down as part of the latest epidemiological measures.

“In order to be ready for the next tourist season, and in anticipation of the vaccination of a considerable portion of the population of Croatia and the EU, we expect further support for job preservation until at least 1 April 2021,” Ostojic said.

Asked about hoteliers’ expectations for December, he said that as far as the epidemiological situation in the hotels was concerned, they did not expect any difficulties considering the measures already in place and the expected volume of tourist turnover.

Ostojic said that expectations for the post-pandemic period and the tourism development strategy would be discussed at the convention of hoteliers and campsite operators, which will be held online on 1 and 2 December.
