Croatia is one of the top travel destinations in the world. The summer is the most popular season to travel so if you want to go during this time then you need to book well in advance. If you are budget minded or if you want to try and skip out on the hordes of people then you may want to wait a few months. Consider travelling in late September or even October. When you do this, you will still get the great weather and you can also access some great accommodation. After all, there are some very classy villas in Croatia and by travelling later, you can have the first pick of them.
Think outside the Box

Consider looking into staying in one of the local bed and breakfasts, or even try and find a hidden gem. You may also want to look into a villa or a holiday home. Either way, sometimes you can get a way nicer room for half the price and when you look into things like this, you can be sure to really get a good result out of your booking.
Croatia makes it very easy for you to travel around. Some of the destinations are connected via a ferry and others give you the chance to travel by bus or train. Buses are the most popular method of travel and they are also the fastest. You have various departure times and you can also see the cities up close and personal.

It doesn’t take long to do but it could make all the difference to your stay. You never know, you may even find your new favorite dish as well, so it’s really worth taking the time to find out what is in your area.
