"Something that you must know about..." Croatia Tourist Trap Tip by pam9

Croatia Tourist Traps: 33 reviews and 30 photos

This is one of the usual mistake :

The biggest agencies are the cheapest.

Maybe that statement has some point if you are looking for some big hotel accommodation but otherwise is not true. Specially regarding private accommodation(apartments, holiday houses, villas but also small hotels...). You must know that many big agencies(especially if they are not croatian agency) use smaller croatian agencies as a supplier of accommodation and services for their guests. That means that big agency must pay commission to smaller,no.... the true is that you will pay that commission :(
I have the information that some of the biggest agencies in Croatian travel market (that includes foreign travel agencies as well) has a 20-30% higher prices from some smaller agencies....... it looks impossible but it is true.

Unique Suggestions: Find the right croatian travel agency. Also, compare the prices from several agencies ...

Fun Alternatives: You can find the direct contact (you can try on ) of the hotel or the owner of the private accommodation and you will probably save some money. Find somebody with the experience when choosing your accomodation.
