Thrifty Traveler Premium put out an alert to subscribers today that looks like a hot deal if you don’t mind basic economy to Europe: flights from various US cities are available to Zagreb, Croatia from just $239 round trip. You won’t get a seat assignment, but at these prices you might be OK with traveling light.

The Deal

  • Round trip basic economy flights from various US cities to Zagreb, Croatia from just $239 round trip
  • Use Momondo for the lowest fares

Quick Thoughts

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.

Chicago is even cheaper at $239 RT. Boston is a bit more at $287. Various other cities are possible — you’ll just have to play with cities and dates in Momondo to find the cheapest deals.

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.

I found MSP for $333 per person. 2 layovers each way, but was able to get the way back as an overnight which actually works better traveling with the kiddo.

just curious-how to choose mileage when Croatia airline and BA are different alliances? Will I get the chance to accumulate Croatia to lifemiles and all the BA flights to BA separately?

Thanks. Just booked RT Chicago to Zagreb via London for $238.93. (March 14-22) So isn’t the UK departure tax almost this much? There’s no way this deal is going to be honored…

The APD you’re thinking of doesnt apply to connections.

Hi Nick, this is off topic but I know you are sort of MS guy. quick question here. I MSed 2 months ago on hilton amex for anniversary award and delta platinum for MQD waiver. It does not show that big spend portion towards neither $15K on hilton or $25K on delta website. have you noticed recently ms with AMEX card?

Seats are available at cheap prices through May. NYC to Zagreb in May starts at a little less than $300. So you can get better weather if you want.

I sure hope this one gets honored. I spent a lot of time going day-by-day on the Cheapoair website. I couldn’t figure out a faster alternative. BTW, I wouldn’t bother looking for cashback on cheapoair. They actually raise their ticket prices if you use a cashback site. Amazing.

thank you, Nick. I’m from Croatia and just booked NYC-ZAG, a long weekend with an extra night in London, for $260. I’ve never seen prices to ZAG this low. thanks again.
