Croatia in vogue among budget travelers

Croatia in vogue among budget travelersTravelers have set their sights on Croatia as their next backpacking destination, according to a report published earlier this month (7 May 2009).

The Balkan state has joined Turkey and Bulgaria to become one of the cheapest travel hotspots, making it an ideal budget trip abroad with reasonably priced hostels in abundance.

According to the Post Office Holiday Costs Barometer, which conducted the research, the popularity of the European destination is further proof that cost is a primary factor when Brits are planning an overseas adventure.

Sarah Munro, head of travel services at the Post Office, commented: "Holidaymakers are considering all the costs of a holiday carefully... which means that a destination like Croatia, which rates as one of the cheapest in our 2009 Holiday Costs Barometer, will have a growing appeal."

Backpackers are also drawn to the country to view its wealth of historical attractions that encompasses seven world heritage sites and eight national parks.
