Zagreb Starting to Cash in on Coastal Private Accommodation Model

Zagreb Renting out rooms to tourists have provided many on Croatia’s Adriatic coast with a living for decades, and now it looks like folk in the capital Zagreb have started to follow suit….

After seeing how lucrative it can be on the coast for residents who own property, locals in the capital Zagreb are now more and more looking to cash in on the tourist dollar by renting out their apartments and rooms. An explosion of adverts have begun to pop up, as Zagreb enjoys double-digit tourism growth.

Currently there are 853 apartments, with a capacity of 1,910 beds on offer in Zagreb, says the Zagreb Tourist Board. The average size of apartments is between 40 and 70 square metres and the offerings are not confined to the city centre, with rooms and apartments being advertised near the airport and bus station. With Zagreb experiencing 15% growth in arrivals last year, the trend of locals renting out their rooms and apartments is set to continue, reports Tportal. On the coast last summer there was an increase of 15.2% in rooms rented out at private homes and apartments compared to the previous year, with many moving out of their homes for the summer to stay with relatives whilst they rented out their places to tourists.
