It depends on destination you wish to visit. More touristy ones are more expensive but you can take a look here http://www.adriatic.hr/en/hotels

Maybe these prices will be more affordable.

You can also browse through private accommodation offer to find cheaper places to stay.

Prices in general (food, tickets, fares) will probably be acceptable (comparing to Western and Northern European countries)

Hi,

We found it cheaper than other countries in Europe. There are all sorts of accommodation available you just need to do some research regarding what suits your budget. You can eat relative cheaply in Croatia.

My son also visited this year & his only 26 & travels through countries on a budget & he thought Croatia to be relatively cheap.

Hotel prices drop significantly if you can travel outside July and August. Dubrovnik, Rovinj and Hvar Town tend to be more expensive than elsewhere. Apartments are often good value compared to hotels.

Summer vacation do not have to be expensive, because you can choose the apartment that fits your budget from cheap accommodation offer in Croatia. In zhe most attractive places around Croatia can find a cheap apartment that suits all your requirements. When it comes to food, Croatia is not that cheap, but it is cheaper than most European countries. Slovenia is, for example, cheaper than Croatia when it comes to food.

Croatia is thankfully not bargain bucket two for one happy hour like Bulgaria for instance but it's fantastic compared to the eurozone. Private accommodation is fantastic value. Travelling in June we pay an average of £20-25 a night for a nice three star apartment. A good steak dinner about £10-12 up to whatever you want to pay at the top end. Pizzas about £5. Supermarket prices are the same or dearer than the UK. Drinks in bars and restaurants cheap enough. Hotel prices don't have much relation to their quality or the general costs of things. As a couple we have very nice two week holidays eating in mid range restaurants, drinks after, trips and transport, coming in at about £700 each.

Look at EasyJet, Wizz and Ryanair who all fly there plus Monarch this year and Croatia Airlines. Flights vary hugely in price - pick carefully and its about £39 each way
