Self-service Accommodation bookings:

Hotels we recommend for clients who prefer to plan their own holidays are below.
To book your accommodation, please click through to booking.com and use your credit card to secure the booking directly through their website.

These are just a few of the great places to stay in Croatia. Please carefully check the map for all accommodation, especially in the Old Town areas, to ensure you are booking the right accommodation for you. Many towns and areas have similar names and not all accommodation is centrally located in the old town areas. If you do book accommodation inside a pedestrian zone, then please note that transfers cannot pick you up directly from your hotel, and you must meet them at a pre-arranged location outside the zone.

To book your accommodation, please click through to booking.com and use your credit card to secure the booking directly through their website under your own account. We are an affiliate only and provide this information as a free service. All recommendations are just that, recommendations only. No liability is accepted for any bookings you make with any of the listed accommodation. We are not associated with any of the accommodation in any way.

Any bookings you make with booking.com are solely at your own discretion and are under the purview of booking.com, of which we are an affiliate only. No liability or responsibility is accepted by Discover Croatia for any bookings made through their website. You must contact them directly through your account for any changes/problems with your booking. We cannot make bookings on their site for you. We provide this information as a service only. Thank you.

We earn a very small amount of affiliate commission from any accommodation booking you make if you click through from our website and actually follow through with the booking all the way to when you depart the accommodation. If you do not click through from our website, the booking is not associated with our affiliate link and therefore we earn no commission. This information is for those travellers who do not wish to pay to use our planning service, or who do not wish to book a custom tour, a package tour, or a cruise or yacht charter.  

If you wish to book ferries, you may do so yourself directly on the ferry sites. You may find some free information here on our Ferries page.

If you wish for us to book your accommodation, ferries and transfers, please look at our Island Hopping Package Tours here.

If you would like us to help you with your itinerary before you book your accommodation we are happy to help and charge an itinerary planning fee (which needs to be paid upfront). We know that some clients prefer just a little help along the way, and some clients prefer for us to make all their arrangements. We are flexible with this, and as such, we now offer an itinerary planning service as well.

All clients who contact us for a custom itinerary will be required to pay a $100 deposit towards an itinerary planning fee. If you are not prepared to do this, please do not ask us to help you plan your holiday. We provide a lot of free information on our website for clients who want to make their own accommodation, bus and train bookings. However, we do not provide a free itinerary planning service, therefore a deposit is required for us to create an itinerary for you. We hope you understand this is necessary so that we ensure our business can continue to function. We will offer you recommendations on accommodation and transport and then you can make the bookings directly yourself. The itinerary planning fee must be paid upfront by credit card, you can do so here (use PLANFEE as your booking number).

If you go ahead with booking your holiday through us, then the itinerary planning fee will be deducted from the final cost of your holiday. We just want to ensure that we are spending our time where it’s needed, with clients who do actually wish to use our services.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
