According to the latest Post Office Holiday Money Report, Croatia is one of ten "hot" destinations for summer 2014. A range of factors will determine where holidaymakers will travel this year say the Post Office, including destination and flight developments, package prices, resort costs, exchange rates and demand that spurred growth in recent years. Using this criteria, Post Office Travel Money has identified the hotspots it predicts will most likely hit the headlines for all the right reasons in the coming year.
Croatia has grown in popularity year after year rising to become one of Europe's most trendy destinations to visit with the Croatian National Tourist Board reporting a 24% increase in UK visitors last year. Resorts prices are not as low as some of its European competitors, but demand for the Croatian currency, the Kuna, has doubled over the past two years according to Post Office sales indicating a significant increase in visitors to the country. Balkan Holidays offer a fantastic range of holidays to Croatia to cater for this demand with flights from many UK airports to the beautiful Adriatic coast covering over 20 popular resorts and cities.
The region of Istria will open Croatia's first waterpark soon to attract more families to the area while Croatia including the popular city of Dubrovnik, rated as the "city most wanted to visit" according to last year's Post Office City Costs Barometer, are currently undergoing an improvement of services and facilities in many of its hotels.
There was also good news for another of Balkan Holidays summer destinations Sunny Beach, Bulgaria as good value family meals helped make the resort the best value resort for the third consecutive year in the Post Office Family Holiday Report. Bulgaria also climbed above the traditionally popular destination of Spain into 5th place for the upcoming 2014 season where prices are predicted to be lower.
With strong exchange rates, things are looking increasingly bright for UK holidaymakers travelling abroad in 2014, so there has never been a better time to book your Balkan Holidays summer holiday to Bulgaria or Croatia with selected holidays bookable with just a £35pp deposit and prices starting from only £224pp.
