Save money by straying from the beaten path in Croatia
One of the most appealing features of a holiday in eastern Europe is the rock bottom cost of goods.
Destinations like Croatia have proven popular among Aussie travellers in recent years, as their dollar stretches a long way in such places.
Nadine Hallak – travel expert at Cheapflights.co.uk – believes Croatia's entry into the European Union in 2013 could impact the price of products and services in the country.
At the moment, Aussies are benefiting from some of the best exchange rates ever seen when buying overseas travel money.
Currently, one Australian dollar will get you in the region of 5.81 Croatian Kuna, although most shop owners, restaurateurs and hoteliers across the nation already accept the euro.
Ms Hallak feels that Croatia will eventually catch up with its more expensive fellow EU members over time, but certain parts of the beautiful country will still provide great value for money.
"Bargain hunters will find their best deals if they stay off the beaten path and away from the high season," she remarked.
