Croatia pricing guide

Most families choose to self-drive in Croatia (unless concentrating on just one small part of the country, such as Dubrovnik and the nearby islands). It is also possible to have private transfers or to utilise the extensive ferry service.

Price guidelines

Croatia is no longer a cheap European destination! As a general guideline, a two-week itinerary in the summer for a family of four will start from around £13,600 including accommodation, car hire and a number of activities. This will be based on a mixture of hotels and self-catering accommodation. If you want to upgrade accommodation or include a wider range of activities, prices will start from around £17,000 for a family of four but may easily climb higher than this. If you have a budget, please do advise us from the outset so that we can tailor our suggestions accordingly.

If you are travelling out of the peak July and August season then prices will be lower.

A short break trip of a week will usually cost from £7,200 for a family of four (excluding flights) during the summer months. Outside these months it will start from around £5,920.

International flights

All prices exclude international flights, which start from £200pp during school holidays. Flight prices at other times can be extremely cheap, sometimes as low as £50pp.

Many of the main flight routes to Croatia from the UK are operated by budget airlines that operate flexible pricing policies. Generally the earlier you book, the better. Most will operate for the summer season but may stop over the winter.

Age suitability

There are no age limits on any of our holidays. We will tailor the itinerary to the ages of your children and can accommodate everyone!
