Company executives travel to Croatia and work with leading in-country tourism brands to meet increased demand.
MOONACHIE, NEW JERSEY – The Croatian National Tourist Board revealed that the country saw about 4.4 million overnight stays in June, exceeding the tourist turnover in the same period last year by more than 80 percent. As current number of tourists in the country show that Croatia is once again one of the most high-demand destinations in the Mediterranean, Croatia has once again reopened to U.S. travelers who meet their entry requirements, prompting Aventura World to enhance their product line to the country, known as “The Pearl of the Adriatic.”
"We continue seeing that as vaccinations become more and more readily available, leisure travelers are eager to take a long-awaited getaway to new international destinations. That said, we have seen that Croatia has become a popular choice above many other European destinations with its many outdoor friendly activities, adherence to prescribed COVID measures, and well-defined entry guidelines that give travelers peace of mind," said Ian Scott, President of Aventura World.
To meet this significant boost in demand, Ian Scott, president of Aventura World traveled to Croatia and met with top tourism companies including industry leader Katarina Hauptfeld of Katarina Lines, one of the country's premier destination management companies and cruise operators. “Demand for travel to Croatia is surging," said Hauptfield. "June and July marked record growth and hoteliers are saying that August is sold out. The aim, of course is for this positive increase to continue driving the tourism recovery ongoing, while keeping the country safe for travelers and residents."
