Croatia’s largest ferry company, Jadrolinija will lower ticket prices by 20% out of season after accepting a recommendation from the Coastal Transport Agency.
The recommendation was also accepted by Rapska plovidba, which operates ferries to the island of Rab.
Ticket prices will be cheaper by 20% from Friday to Sunday outside the main tourist season with the aim to attract more passengers and vehicles to the islands during the off-season.
The Ministry of Maritime Affairs, Transport, and Infrastructure of the Republic of Croatia announced yesterday that the new measures will come into effect next week on 19 January and run to 18 March 2018.
Tickets on lines operated by Jadrolinija and Rapska plovidba will be 20% cheaper for adults, kids between 3-12, personal vehicles (up to 9 seats), motorbikes, bicycles, and mopeds.
Today Jadrolinija, which employs 1,700 people, has a fleet of 50 boats, which operate on 37 lines.
The Ministry announced that it will consider the possibility of further implementation after March and will take into account increased ship capacity, utilization and the financial impact of the recommendation, Slobodna Dalmacija reports.
