Budget

My girlfriend and I are planning on saving our money and going on this trip for her birthday in this coming May. We chose this time because there won’t be a super high volume of tourists. Since it isn’t peak tourist season, tickets are also more affordable.

After looking at a variety of different airlines, we’ve decided to fly Jet and Croatia airlines. Not only are they the most affordable but they have also received great customer and safety reviews.
