When is the best time to book a flight to Croatia?

The price you pay for your flight to Croatia may vary depending on when you book. For the best chance of a lower fare, look to book 60 days in advance of your trip. Fares are likely to increase a fortnight or so before your departure date.

Which day is cheapest to fly to Croatia?

Wednesday is currently, on average, the cheapest day to fly to Croatia. Flying on Sunday will result in higher flight prices.

What time of day is cheapest to fly to Croatia?

To get the best value, try booking a flight at noon when visiting Croatia. Generally the prices will increase for flights in the evening as these tend to have higher demand.

Undulating lavender hills on Hvar; the Unesco world heritage site of Dubrovnik and the unrivalled beauty of the Dalmatian coast are some of the main reasons tourists book flights to Croatia every summer. With thousands of miles of coastline on the Adriatic and more than a thousand islands, the country is a popular European destination for sunlovers. The surroundings to the predominantly rocky beaches are also stunning. Miles of pine forest and mountains make the view inland just as attractive as that out to the turquoise sea.

Though the country’s tourism has completely recovered from the Yugoslav war of the early 1990s, evidence of the destruction is still apparent. A walk along the old city walls of Dubrovnik show a patchwork of roofs, some hundreds of years old, some replaced just a decade ago after the bombings. The coastal towns of Dubrovnik, Split and Rijeka are most visited by beachgoers, but inland Zagreb has plenty to offer sightseers. This is also the arrival point of most flights to Croatia, though transport from here to the coast is easy to find.

Croatia climate

Croatia has mild seasons all year, thanks to its coastal Mediterranean location. The summers are dry and hot, averaging temperatures around 27 C. The winters are fairly mild, with temperatures above freezing.

When is the best time to fly to Croatia?

Peak Season:

The European summer is the most popular season with holidaymakers – resorts are fuller between June and August and prices rise accordingly.

Off Season:

As the main draw of Croatia is its coast, the winter period (especially from November to February) is the low season for tourism. However, it is possible to ski in the mountains as there is often snow. Zagreb is rapidly becoming a tourist hotspot and is worth visiting at any time of year – even if the weather is freezing, there is enough to do inside. Lent and the accompanying carnival is another great time to fly: Rijeka is the place in which it is celebrated with the most enthusiasm.

Shoulder Season:

The mountain range running north-south alongside the country’s sea protects the coastline from the worst of the winds and the cold weather, which means spring arrives early and autumn ends late. If you’re heading for the coast, therefore, it’s possible to swim from about May, and right up until October in Southern Dalmatia. This means that May-June and September-October are great times to visit. Avoid most other tourists, pay discounted prices for hotels and pick up cheap Croatia flights.

Getting around Croatia

Internal Croatia flights are the quickest way of getting around and are available between all major destinations, such as Split, Zagreb, Dubrovnik, Zadar and Pula. Croatia Airlines is the national carrier.

If you are planning on staying on Croatia’s beautiful coast, one of the most enjoyable ways to travel round is by ferry. This is certainly not the quickest route – ferries from Rijeka to Split, for example are overnight, whereas you could drive in four hours – however it is easily the most attractive and one of the best ways to see the country. The ferries are run by Jadrolinja (pronounced “yad-ro-lin-eeah”) and are very reasonably priced. For travel to some of the more remote islands, ferry is obviously the only option.

Buses are available throughout most of the country and tend to be the quickest form of public transport. They are often more expensive than the trains, though not as comfortable. The rail network is relatively good, but any travel along the coast, or from the coast to Zagreb, is far easier accomplished by bus. The coastal path from Rijeka down to Dubrovnik offers some wonderful landscape and views of the azure sea.

Cars can easily be hired and driving is easy. Most roads are in a good state of repair for travel between the more popular tourist destinations.

How long is the flight to Croatia?

The duration of travel from the Philippines to Croatia varies based on the city you are taking off from and the final destination. From Ninoy Aquino International Airport, Manila, to Franjo Tudman Airport, Zagreb, could take around 16h 50min to 42h, with a maximum of three stops. Flights from Clark Airport to Zagreb could take about 24h 15min to 42h 45min, with a minimum of one and a maximum of three stopovers in between. Flights from Manila to Split Airport, Split, take approximately 20h 50min, while from Clark Airport to Split Airport takes about 27h 35min. Most airlines service flights with a minimum of two stopovers, while there are cheap flights to Croatia with three stops, which prolongs the travel time.

Where can you get direct flights to Croatia from?

There are no direct flights offered from the Philippines to Croatia. Options include one to three stopovers, from Manila or Angeles to either Zagreb or Split. Airlines that provide one-stop flights are Turkish Airlines, Emirates, and Qatar Airways. Consider booking trips from Manila to Zagreb, which has a shorter travel time and a cheaper rate compared to flying to Split or Dubrovnik. If you are looking for Croatia flight deals that are cheap, the duration of the journey and number of stopovers will increase.

What is the best way to travel around Croatia?

travelling around Croatia isn’t complicated as it is a small country, and driving is the most convenient way to look at the region. A rental car is the best choice for anyone looking for impromptu travelling or sightseeing, especially to the major cities in Croatia: Zadar, Osijek, Zagreb, Split, and Rijeka. Travelling by train would work best for the northern part of Croatia, with connections to Rijeka and Split. However, it can be time consuming unless you hop on a high-speed train. Buses and ferries are great options for getting around, as the locals do; Croatia has local and national bus operators that can take you basically anywhere in the country. You can book your tickets in advance to avoid the hassle of buying tickets at the counter.

What are some things to do in Croatia?

Croatia is gaining traction as a summer destination because of its pristine beaches, Gothic architecture, and picturesque scenery. Zagreb, the country’s capital, has several parks, cafes, and tourist attractions, bringing you back and forth between the medieval and modern eras. Walk along the cobblestone streets while marvelling at the neo-Baroque and Art Deco infrastructures. Experience the beauty and mystery of Dubrovnik as if you are filming your own movie or series. Dubrovnik’s Old Town gives you a panoramic view of the city established in the 7th century. And if the 7th century is not old enough, Split offers a 4th-century experience. The Diocletian Palace is a well-preserved walled town showcasing Croatia's rich cultural heritage. When the busy tourist destinations are not your cup of tea, head to Zada. It is less crowded and more private. Indulge in solitude while marvelling at the rough terrain of the Velebit Mountains. Get lost in the national parks Paklenica, Krka, and Plitvice Lake, or dive and swim in the turquoise water of Sahara Beach.

Do I need a passport or visa to fly to Croatia?

When travelling from the Philippines to Croatia, you will need a valid passport and a single or multiple entry Schengen tourist visa. There is a visa fee of around ₱4,660 for applicants above 12 years old and ₱2,340 for children 12 years old and below. After approval and upon arrival, you need to present your return flight ticket and proof of purchase of accommodation at immigration in Croatia, together with your passport and visa.

What is good to know if travelling to Croatia?

  • One of the major draws of the country is its stunning coastline, running the length of the country from Rijeka past Dubrovnik. But be prepared before you hit the beach: there are very few sandy spots to be found, and most of the resorts boast instead a rugged and beautiful black rock. Bring a thick towel if you need padding for sunbathing.
  • Dubrovnik is arguably the most popular town. Its best beach, however, isn’t on the mainland but a small island just ten minutes away by taxi boat. Lokrum island is a national resort, protected by the Croatian Academy of Art and Science. As well as a stunning beach, backed by pine trees, the island also has a botanic garden, filled with tropical plants, and an old Benedictine monastery, part crumbling, hidden in the undergrowth which now serves as a restaurant. The taxi boats leave from Dubrovnik Harbour every half hour.
  • Most tourists congregate on the southern Dalmatian islands, but those to the North – though often a bit cooler in temperature – can offer even more beautiful scenery and tend to be less crowded in the height of summer. Rab – which can be reached by ferry from Rijeka in just over an hour – is one of the most attractive. The greenest of all islands, it is covered with pine forests and also has sandy beaches. Rab Town has Roman and Greek buildings, with numerous churches and historic squares.
  • English is not widely spoken, beyond those involved in the tourist industry. Try and learn a few words of Croat if possible, which will get you a long way in shops and restaurants. Otherwise, Italian is the most widely understood Western-European language, due to the proximity of the country and also because Croatia has long been a popular summer holiday-spot for Italians.
  • If you are planning a holiday in Croatia and still need to find a hotel in Dubrovnik, a hotel in the city of Zagreb or a hotel in Split, visit trivago to compare deals and reviews.
