How to save money on your vacation in Croatia and still have a great time?

How to save money on your vacation in Croatia and still have a great time?

Bargain hunters, pay attention!

Most tourists imagine a perfect vacation as a stay in luxury accommodation, visiting luxurious restaurants that offer expensive specialties and sun bathing on the most luxurious beaches that offer a wide range of services.

If you want to spend your vacation in one of our villas with pool in Istria or Dalmatia, you can be sure that you will stay in a beautiful, spacious accommodation.

However, in order to explore all the beauties of the Croatian coast and visit the most beautiful places in Croatia, it is not necessary to spend huge amounts of money. In this text we will show you how to spend a perfect vacation in Croatia, visit cultural sights and discover wonderful landscapes without spending too much money.

The first step to well-planned travel expenses is to start planning your vacation as early as possible. If you are planning on arriving by plane, choose the dates as early as possible so that you can book a flight at particularly affordable prices. Once you land, you will likely need a suitable car rental company as well. Don't leave anything to chance, rather find out in time where and how you can rent a car. If you are travelling with a private car and set out on a long journey, it is very important to plan your route in advance to avoid unnecessary expenses.


The landscape of Istria and Dalmatia offers numerous natural beauties, so a visit to the national parks during your stay in Croatia is definitely recommended. Although tickets for such places can be quite expensive, check before buying if the park has special prices for families with young children, for larger groups of visitors, or special prices out of high season. In addition to national parks, Croatia also offers the opportunity to explore enchanting landscapes. Breathtaking places can be visited even by going on a short excursion even without an expert guide. A short walk or a bike ride will take you to viewpoints that offer a magnificent view of the hidden corners of Istria and Dalmatia. If you choose to go on one of the local tours, make sure you check all the offers that are available to you and choose the option with the best price.


The regions of Istria and Dalmatia are known for towns with a long history and rich culture. The advantage of Croatian towns is that they are relatively small and clearly arranged, so that you can easily plan a city tour all by yourself. We recommend stopping by the city's tourist office in advance for information on which sights and attractions are particularly worth seeing. We also recommend checking which museums offer special prices at certain time of the year.

An inevitable part of the encounter with a new culture is the gastronomic offer of traditional specialties. If you thought that this meant spending a lot of money in expensive restaurants, think again. Everyone likes to indulge in a luxurious dinner in a good restaurant during their vacation. But before you go to the first restaurant on the main street check with the locals who will be happy to suggest where to try traditional local cuisine. These are usually local taverns mostly visited by local guests, so the prices are much cheaper too.


In addition to a rich offer of local restaurants and taverns, Croatia is also one of the countries where you can find markets full of stalls where you can buy fresh fruits and vegetables, but also other foods such as cheese, fish or spices and olive oil. Isn't this an ideal opportunity to prepare one of the specialties all by yourself in one of our villas? For inspiration, we recommend reading one of our “Gastronomy” articles.

We hope that you will take some of these homemade products home with you too. Is there a better souvenir than a local product that will remind you of the wonderful moments of your vacation every time you try it?

Many like to spend the evenings in bars and clubs. However, if you opt for a romantic stroll on the beach while watching the sunset or for a glass of Malvazija on the terrace of your villa by the pool, we guarantee unforgettable moments.


We hope that we have encouraged you with these tips to choose a vacation on the Croatian coast and that you are already browsing our website to choose the ideal accommodation as a destination for your next vacation in Croatia!

And don't forget - MyIstria guarantees the lowest price for all villas available on our site! So do not miss the unique opportunity to experience a vacation in a luxury accommodation at the best price!
