September the 13th, 2020 – is, along with AirBnB, one of the most frequently used platforms for reserving private accommodation when going on holiday. Unfortunately, the leading company’s Split office is set to close its doors as a result of the negative economic consequences caused by the spread of the new coronavirus.

The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has dealt a heavy blow to the travel and tourism industry on a global scale, and countries like Croatia, which rely very heavily on that industry as one of their most important economic branches, have been hit hard indeed. As much as 20 percent of Croatia’s GDP is made up from travel and tourism, and as the virus continues to spread, difficult decisions need to be made.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 12th of September, 2020,, one of the world’s leading online platforms for booking accommodation across the globe has decided to put the key in the lock of its Split office, as reported by Dalmatian portal Slobodna Dalmacija.

The news was officially confirmed to Slobodna Dalmacija on Friday from the company’s headquarters in the City of Zagreb. The closing of’s Split office has been rumoured for days among a large army of Split-based landlords and tourist workers of all kinds, who have been surrounding by for years in their own respective lines of tourism work.

”In August, we announced that due to the devastating impact of the COVID-19 crisis, we will be forced to reduce the number of our employees globally. Unfortunately, we can confirm that the employees in our Split office are also affected by the announced changes in business,” Slobodna Dalmacija was told from through their PR agency Dialog-komunikacije.
