How to visit split on a budget
You have heard of Split and you want to travel there but you don’t have so much to spend? Don’t worry so much, here is how to enjoy your stay there on a budget
- Do not visit during seasonal times
Visiting when a season has kicked off will leave you worn out money-wise but off seasons, you get to spend far less for everything. Off seasons in Split are in May, June, or September. If you go in July or August, be ready to spend a lot.
- Do not fly direct
When going to Split on a budget, cut costs by not traveling directly to Split. Rather, fly to cities like Milano, Bratislava, Prague, and Vienna. Then, fly away to Split from there. You will save plenty.
- Stay outside of the city
Staying in a tourist location can be quite pricey especially when you have planned a strict budget. Here is a win-win situation, stay outside of the city. You can choose from cities like Stari Grad, Jelsa or Vrboska, or Podstrana. The towns are just 15-30 minutes away from Split with cheaper hotels, private rentals, hostels, and guest houses.
- Use a bus instead of a taxi
Taxis may be more convenient and private but if you want to stick to your budget plan, use a bus. Several bus services can take you wherever you plan to stay for a lot less than a pricey taxi.
- Pick up a discount card
As long as you intend to keep your expenses to your planned budget and yet have an amazing trip, you must pick this card. It is available at hotel receptions and tourist information centers scattered around and with it.
You get free access to enter the national museums and even the Diocletian Palace which is a UNESCO world heritage site. For places like the theatres, restaurants, and bars, you get mind-blowing discounts.
- Go to the islands and beaches
You have to get a picture that will remind you of your time in Split. Try the islands or beaches. They are very picture friendly and the entrance is usually free of charge. The weather is mild all year and the waters, refreshing on the beaches.
You don’t have to break a bank when visiting this colorful city! Enjoy!
