4 nights in Zadar October, Croatia for £96 each (total £192) including flights, 3* apartment and car hire @ Ebookers

Posted 17th May
This deal is based on 2 people flying out from Gatwick on Tuesday 1st October, returning Saturday 5th October, staying for 4 nights in the 3* Apartment Petra and including car hire.

With EasyJet the hand luggage is 1 hand luggage standard trolly size case and 1 duty free item (where you can hide your handbag!).

I’ve included car hire as 5 days in Zadar itself might be a bit much, however there are many places you can visit by car. Plitvice Lakes National Park is a 2 hour drive away and very much recommended.

At the beginning of October the weather in Zadar will be in its low 20oC in the day and drop down to the mid teens in the evening so pack a jacket!

I’ve chosen the 3* Apartment Petra. I’ve stayed her myself and can highly recommend these apartments. They’re around a 30 minute walk into the heart of Zadar, 15 minutes walk into Borik beach and only a 20 minute drive from the airport. The apartments have a private balcony and the hostess is so friendly! It has an average of 5/5 on Tripadvisor. There is a tax to be collected upon arrival of €6.50.

There are plenty of other hotels to choose from for around the same price. If you want to save money there are a few cheaper options with shared bathrooms.

Just came back from Zadar...

I'd maybe want to be a bit closer to the old town. Having . acar is extremely useful, you'll probably want to go to the national parks around Zadar, as the old town is really only worth 2-3 hours visit. The beaches in zadar town are stony, i don't know what the water in october will be like, but in may it was a little too cold for me and not hot enough outside. other people liked it though.

if i were going back, it'd be to base myself in zadar for access to the national parks.

I went 2 years ago and drove to the waterfalls and split. Found the roads to be empty. Loved Zadar!

We hired a car from the airport and drove to both national parks and then down to Tucepi and back to the airport. Not a single worry, nice roads but winding. If you hire a car be sure to take photos and video of all sides when you take it out, its common for hire companies to try stitch you up. Ours did but we showed them the pic evidence with the date and time.
Beautiful place, a must . Heres a short video of us driving the road. youtu.be/FDe…agM

I don't drive, but when i took the busses, the roads seemed empty. May is just before the main season, so it's possibly different in peak season as i hear that Zadar becomes massively crowded.
Heat added for the accommodation recommendation!

Am going to Croatia on honeymoon in June and so far have booked 2 days in Split, 2 in Primosten and needed to book the remainder of the holiday in Zadar (this is where we are flying to/from!)
Can't wait, looks like those that have been had a great time
Went to Croatia last year (split/parks/dubrovnik) and its such a beautiful country.

Driving is a bit mental at times, just take into account people don't indicate much.

Roads are in great condition and the views are breathtaking! I'd deffo recommend this 🏼
...Plitvice Lakes National Park is must see whenever in Croatia

I second that. Loved Zagreb too. Wasn’t fussed with Zadar. Pula was nice. Driving was very easy. Their roads are so good compared to ours.

...Split is worth a visit and of course Dubrovnik is another must
Jumping on this thread sorry OP as looking to go to Croatia in July does anyone know what the buses are like as I dont drive looking at landing in Dubrovnik and doing a sailing tour from split
Just a quick question, I’ve checked online and all info seems to suggest the allowed baggage for the flight unless you pay extra is 1 (56x45x25cm) bag not a trolly case.

Those sizes are the size of a standard hand luggage size trolly case which EasyJet allow free of charge on board, airlines like Ryanair and Wizz Air now charge for these.

Thanks , I double checked and measured our trollies and your right. Can’t wait
Hot deal btw book it now! Sorry this is long ..I should put this on Trip Advisor lol. Croatia is a beautiful country. It gets very hot in Summer.. we went in August when Ryanair was doing cheap flights from EMA. Spent just under a week in Zadar. Full of culture if you are willing to do research. Ancient artefacts and tombs at the back of old Cafés etc.and they are happy for you to explore too.... So lovely. We rented a room in a family apartment right next to the old bell tower and they made us feel so welcome and offered us so much local knowledge. They drove us to Plitvice Lakes stopping off at some fantastic sites we even got to see bears too. Plitvice is just stunning and got some local knowledge about the secret smaller waterfall routes around the outskirts. The local ferry is very cheap and we did three days of island hopping the closest island was Preko (£1.50 ish return) very beautiful and there was lots to explore an old monastery too. Great for snorkeling as shallow and clear although tiny fish! A Sunday morning ferry about £5-6 pp return takes you to Dugi Otok it's for locals so not advertised..ask at the ticket offices (would cost £80 return if you got a private boat) Famous for it's lush sandy beach..you have to get a road train over to the other side of the island.. excellent snorkeling and walking. We ventured out of Zadar over the bridge for our second week to the more local beach resort on the island of Vir. No sandy beaches on most of Croatia's islands but crystal clear waters. Take rubber shoes for swimming. Most rented accommodation includes padded beach mats. Also visited the town of Nin on the mainland (where they claim to have the world's smallest cathedral) We explored the town and spent half the day on the Ninska Laguna sandy beach close by. Top tip.. don't walk to the end of the spot of beach and cover yourself in the mud from head to toe... You will ruin your bikini and have a whiff of boggy stench for days. You may end up with more legs room on the return flight though so weigh it up.. Buses are frequent and cheap with Aircon in the Zadar county. . The people are really lovely too. We had our neighbours bring us grapes grown in their garden.. oh and you can get the Jadrolinja ferry from Zadar to Italy overnight too for about £20ew but we didn't have time. I loved it there. Can't wait to explore more of Croatia. The only thing we were disappointed in was the fact that a lot of food is imported.. especially in the Zadar restaurants. We were expecting fresh fish etc.. but more pizzas and frozen meats but all perfectly lovely. The pag cheese and cold meat deli shop had a few local foodstuffs..also awesome dates and seasonal fruit at the local market.. but I like trying local cuisine so this was the only negative. Oh I almost forgot the sea organ on Zadar waterfront.. and some lighting up thingy at dusk and you must buy a few bottles of Maraska Maraschino to look pretty in your drinks cabinet
I came back from Zadar yesterday from a week's holiday. I loved it there. Seems like a good base for exploring the region and the old part of the city is nice with marble paved pedestrianised streets, a few museums and roman monuments. The old city is compact and I would say two days and even one day (if well planned) is enough to explore everything you'd like to visit there. The ferry trip to Preko, Uglijan island was worth it. It has a quieter more relaxed feel than Zadar. You can walk up to St Michael's fortress for a view of all the surrounding islands. Also, there's an tiny island Osljak (just a 5 minute ferry trip away) that is the smallest inhabited island in Croatia. There are just 29 people living there and parts of it are wooded. The scenery there is beautiful and feels like a desert island. When I visited there was just a handful of people visiting.

I also loved Skradin, an old town on the mainland with a pretty upmarket marina full of yachts. Said to be Bill Gates's favourite spot. You can hop on a boat for £11 and visit Krka national park (included in boat trip)and see the waterfalls (right by the boat drop off point). Or you can drive there and park nearby instead. Very beautiful and quite tropical feeling with turquoise waters. No swimming allowed but plenty of people did, all the same.

Plitvice Lakes was quite breathtaking. Massive waterfalls and boardwalks, allowing you to get up close to them. If I had more time, I would have liked to have gone on a trip to see the Kornati, some barren islands as a bit of contrast.
