- Round trip basic economy flights from various US cities to Zagreb, Croatia from just $239 round trip
- Use Momondo for the lowest fares
Unfortunately, looking up availability isn’t going to be a cinch as the cheapest fares are not showing up via Google Flights. Thrifty Traveler reports that the cheap seats are mostly available mid-week through April. For example, here is New York to Zagreb from March 5-12, 2019 for just $248 round trip.
Keep in mind that when prices are this low, it is wise to give it a couple of weeks before you make any other nonrefundable plans in case the airline gets a case of what some call “seller’s remorse”. If your reservation is still intact a couple weeks from now, it will likely be honored.
Zagreb is a very cool city with good food and prices and spring weather isn’t bad (50’s in March / 60’s in April). Years ago, I stayed at what was then the Four Points Zagreb and is now the Sheraton I believe. I booked via Priceline, had no hotel status, and didn’t know a shred about loyalty — but I still found the staff very accommodating and even scored an upgrade to a large suite. The coast is a bit warmer yet during Spring. Personally, I much preferred Split to Dubrovnik, but I think you can’t go wrong in Croatia — I’ve never had a bad meal, prices are reasonable, and people are friendly. If not for the fact that I already have a number of trips planned for next year, I’d consider this one, basic econ and all.
