Use an online agency . Unlike hotel websites where all is wonderful, online agencies likebooking.com allow you to see reviews by people who have actually stayed there. You can't scam them. Only after a verified visit is a guest invited to post a review. Plus, you get a low-price guarantee (usually the hotel is forbidden to offer a lower price) specific location information (including maps) and instant confirmation. More.
booking.com or Adriagate means you can pay by credit card. The only cheaper alternative is to show up in your destination and try to negotiate a deal directly with the owner (who may or may not speak English).
Avoid the summer season. The high season along the Croatian coast begins around the second week of July and lasts through August. If you can avoid this period, you'll make big savings. Prices can be up to 40% cheaper just by travelling in June! Find out more about when to go to Croatia.
Try to arrange a four-night stay
Especially in private accommodation, you'll get a 30% reduction on a four-night stay so you can save a lot by using a place as a base while you visit the region. See more budget tips.
