Celebrating a return to travel! We’re thrilled to see so many people returning to exploring our magnificent world. Croatia saw a huge spike in tourism for the 2021 and 2022 seasons. 2023 is expected to break pre-COVID records. Many of our cherished local suppliers eagerly welcomed clients back to Croatia, worked tirelessly, often without any breaks in their schedule, and had a successful season.
Croatia is open to visitors. The most up-to-date entry requirements can be found on Croatia’s Ministry of Interior Affairs website.
You can read about what to expect when you’re on a trip with us in terms of cleaning procedures and health testing on our Travel COVID-Safe Policy page.
Many cruises and hotels are already sold out for 2023. Booking in advance gives you access to our best guides and favorite hotel properties. We look forward to welcoming you to Croatia!
SOME CHANGES AND IMPORTANT DETAILS FOR 2023 BOOKINGS
Flexibility and peace of mind for 2023 bookings in this ever-changing world: For new 2023 bookings, we require a 20% deposit and final payment due 90 days in advance of your trip. You can cancel anytime up to the date of your final payment with these three below options:
- Receive a travel credit that is valid until December 2024
- Transfer your deposit to another date (trip must be before December 2024)
- Receive a refund minus a $500 USD administration fee per person and any non-refundable destination costs
If you cancel after the final payment due date, we are unable to offer you a refund, travel certificate or travel credit.
If Always Croatia cancels your trip, you will receive a full refund.
As the situation with COVID is fluid, we may further amend our policies going forward and post any updates here.
TRAVEL IN YOUR OWN PERSONAL TRAVEL BUBBLE WITH ONE OF OUR PRIVATE LAND TOURS
Always Croatia specializes in creating customized land tours with private drivers, guides, and experiences. These trips are personalized to you, how you like to travel, how active or relaxed you want the trip to be, and the level of accommodations. These trips are an excellent way to see Croatia and are now more popular than ever. Any of the land tours on the website can be tweaked to your preferences and tailor-made to you so that it’s your perfect trip.
SMALL SHIP CRUISE DEPARTURES
Experiencing Croatia by sea is a magical way to see the coastline and islands. Enhanced measures are taken aboard our cruises to ensure safety for all passengers and crew on board. We test the crew at the beginning of each cruise and after the cruise starts, the whole group is functioning as a bubble. Although all of our crew members are vaccinated, breakthrough cases are still possible. We ask that, if possible, guests be mindful of close contact with people for the two weeks leading up to the cruise and of course, if you are experiencing any symptoms, please contact us for alternatives.
TRAVEL INSURANCE DURING COVID
Always Croatia travelers are strongly encouraged to purchase medical insurance while they are on their trip with us. Unexpected things occasionally come up and you want to make sure you’re covered. Cancellation insurance that covers COVID-19 related cancellations and medical issues is also VERY STRONGLY recommended. COVID-19 has made the world unpredictable and cancellation insurance helps protect both you and us. Cancellation travel insurance has never been more important than it is now. We will do our best to recover as much money as possible for any of our clients who have to cancel their trip but chose not to purchase travel insurance, but it’s always challenging for us when all the services have been paid for in advance. For this reason, we strongly recommend cancellation insurance to help avoid any disappointment.
Please see our Croatia Travel During COVID page for up to date information on restrictions and entry requirements.
We thank you for your trust and support.
From the Always Croatia family to yours, be well and stay healthy.
