The New York Times have named Croatia the hottest destination this summer.

The New York Times say that in 2017 more Americans are travelling abroad than they did last year with bookings and sales up between 10 and 30%.

American Express Travel, a network primarily for leisure travelers, say that international travel is up 26% percent from last year based on airfare bookings.

“More Americans may be traveling come summer, but where exactly are they going? Here, five popular vacation destinations for summer 2017”, writes The New York Times in the article titled ‘For Summer – 5 Hot Destinations’.

Indagare has a 30 percent increase in trip bookings to Croatia for travel this summer, compared with summer 2016, and Expedia.com has seen air ticket demand to the country double from last summer. Mr. Alexander of Protravel International said that he has planned several dozen private trips to Croatia for travel this summer — the most he has ever done. The country has a multifaceted appeal as a vacation destination, he said. “The beaches are fantastic, the food is delicious, and there’s culture and history,” he said.

In addition, Mr. Alexander said that many of his clients who are headed to Croatia in the coming months have told him that, at a time when terrorist attacks around the world seem to be increasingly commonplace, Croatia is perceived as being “safe.”
