Croatia a “first minute” hit as bookings go through the roof

By  Apr 18, 2016

Croatia is on the verge of one of the most successful tourist season ever, according to a panel of experts from the World Tourism Organisation. 2016 could potentially be a very successful year, for world tourism in general and for Croatia, commented the organisation.

Analyzes indicate that the average expected rate of growth of world tourist traffic (measured by arrivals) this year will be four percent, whilst the growth in Europe will be in the range of 3.5 to 4.5 percent.

- Croatia as a tourist destination is most recognizable among European tourists, but all we are better positioned for more distant markets such as the US, China, Japan or Korea. We are very pleased with the results we achieved last year and we want to continue this positive trend this year. – commented the director of Croatian Tourist Board Ratomir Ivicic.

Analysis and indicators of tour operators in key source markets show that Croatia has performed well as a "first minute" sales. Compared to last year the number of bookings is well above 2015 and double-digit growth is expected.
