Croatia is amongst the most popular places with British people when it comes to renting holiday homes, according to data from the most popular UK website for renting holiday homes, “HomeAway”.
Interest in 2011 in traditionally popular Spain increased by 27 per cent on the previous year. Suprisingly, in the same period, interest in renting holiday homes in Croatia surpassed Spain with 35 per cent growth, and that is expected to rise further this year.
Brits say that Croatia will profit from an increase in the number of flights into the country from the UK, as a result of entering the European Union in 2013. New flight connections from London (Gatwick), Birmingham and Manchester to Dubrovnik have already been announced, while budget airline Ryanair has also confirmed extra flights and connections into Croatia for this year, reported web portal Index.hr.
