Prices for last minute Croatian holidays on Adriatic Go Wild upon arrival of guests
August 4, 2021 – Prices for Croatia’s last minute Adriatic coast holidays are rocketing as more guests arrive and try to find accommodation. No one could have predicted this scenario at the start of the year, but could it be that we are finally closing the door to the global pandemic?
As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, many predictions have been made about the summer of 2021 for Croatia, and some were a little less negative about it than others, but optimists who claimed this summer will end up being a little worse than the record summer 2019 were few. and far in between, reports Slobodna Dalmacija.
I looked at the stats yesterday and couldn’t believe my eyes. I compared them to those from the same period in 2019 and concluded that there are only 12% fewer customers in Makarska today than there were in this prosperous year. pre-pandemic. In Makarska, we have 43% better tourism results compared to the same period last year! finding accommodation is very real. .
In the age of online reservations, our customers, as before, physically go to tourist offices and travel agencies and look for accommodation. Who knew they would start doing it considering it had been so long since people had done it this way. They come here begging for help and they agree with everything. They were also spending the night in an accommodation unit somewhere down the hill, just to sort out the problem. We are seeing a huge influx of tourists, ” Lalic explained as the phenomenon of Croatian last minute vacations continues.
In Split, the situation is such that customers agree to rent a basement and ancillary facilities, and the owners suddenly evict the tenants from their apartments, aware that due to a bad appraisal of the season which surprised everyone the world, they should have received tourists and not played “safe” with long-term tenants. The moment a reservation is canceled, another is reserved, but the price is also thirty percent higher.
The catch is that some residents of Split gave up completely on renting out their accommodation to tourists last year, so there is now a shortage of apartments. The situation is similar to when “Ultra” took place in Split in the early years, and there were not enough tourist beds available. This is why those affected by the pandemic who hope to make money quickly and effortlessly are looking to seize the opportunity and charge prices that are beyond logic.
