According to the results of the annual survey of the German car club ADAC "Routenplanner", one of the largest and most popular European car clubs, Croatia is in second place according to the number of most frequent inquiries of German motorists for travel during the summer holidays, immediately after Germany.
"We know that the German market is our most important travel market, and despite the current situation, interest in the arrival of Germans in Croatia is not decreasing. Compared to our competing countries in the Mediterranean, with safety and a good epidemiological situation, our comparative advantage is proximity and accessibility by car. Since the beginning of July, Croatia has been visited by 107,000 Germans who made 807,000 overnight stays, which is 90 percent of the results of overnight stays in the same period last year, "said Kristjan Stanicic, director of the Croatian National Tourist Board.
The survey covered 85,000 inquiries during May and June 2020, and with 14 percent of inquiries, compared to 9 percent from last year, Croatia came in at second place for the first time.
According to the survey, Germany ranks first with 37 percent of inquiries, while 11.5 percent of inquiries related to Turkey, which ranked third. Italy, after last year's second place, fell to fourth place this year, and Austria is in fifth place.
