With the credit crunch hitting most Brits in their pockets, travel experts are recommending a trip to Croatia.
Charisma PR, which represents the Croatian National Tourist Board, says that the country is an ideal destination for those who are looking to save the pennies.
A spokesperson for the firm said that its location outside of the eurozone means holidaying in Croatia is "good value for money".
They added that the eastern European country was "a popular place to go" and that "visitor numbers are growing year on year".
Figures show that the number of foreign tourists in Croatia increased by 30 per cent to 285,688 in the first quarter of 2008 and that there were 7,370 tourists from the UK.
Talking about Croatia, the spokesperson said: "I think it is very reasonable because it is outside the eurozone, so it's still good value for money because the pound is not particularly strong against the euro at the moment.
"It does have that benefit."
