However, the share of private vacation rentals in the total accommodation capacity is still predominant, 51%, while hotels account for 14.98%.

The COVID pandemic in the last two years has adversely affected the tourist sector, however, one of the good things that have happened in that period is the reversal of the trends concerning private renters’ accommodation for holidays and hotels, says the daily newspaper.

Before the outbreak of COVID-19, private renters’ accommodation facilities increased at about 10% annually.

However, according to the data provided to the newspaper by the Croatian National Tourist Board (HTZ), since 2019 to date, private renters’ accommodation beds have decreased by 1.4% while, beds in hotels have increased by 1.4%.

Thus, currently there are 179,454 beds in hotels, that is 3,000 more than before the start of the pandemic. The private renters’ accommodation facilities for holidays offer 611,525 beds, or 7,000 fewer and there are also 1,204 fewer facilities of this kind compared to July 2019.
