Top Tip on How to Avoid Those Expensive Weekend Flights to Croatia

by Croatia Gems, 10th August 2022

Lovely Croatian Villa but weekend flight costs can be exorbitant, so how can you get around paying them?

So you’ve set your heart on a lovely Croatian villa, and you’ve asked the rental company to hold it for you whilst you check out flights, and then reality hits when you see the prices of those weekend flights!

A Top Tip from us here at Croatia Gems is to come a few days early, thereby using cheaper and more available flights, have a few days in a hotel or B&B (perhaps in a fab historic centre like Split for example, or lovely Trogir) and then move to your lovely Croatian villa on the Saturday for the week.

The advantages are that you can save a lot of money, even when factoring in the extra accommodation costs, and you get to experience another location during the same holiday! As an example, we’ve just heard from a group who have rented one of our large Cavtat villas in July, that they have booked into a couple of apartments within the walls of Dubrovnik Old Town for two nights before their booking and have saved a great deal of money by getting outbound Thursday flights – they are very excited to be staying in the atmospheric old town where they can enjoy the melee and bustle and act like a local. They can easily avoid the times when the cruise ships throng the marbled streets and retire instead to read their books in peace, or take up a great people-watching vantage spot in a local café.
