Can a couple do 2 weeks in Croatia for $5000.00 including flights and a rental car, but not having to stay in hostels?

Outside of summer season (July/Aug) you can find self-catering apartments for less than 50EU p/n. Check booking.com for studios and AirBnb for rooms. For flights, check Skyscanner and expedia for routes. I've used expedia but not third- party websites such as kayak, e-dreams, etc. I just don't trust it. If it's too good to be true it usually is.

And from one Vancouverite to another, don't use US $. CN to US you will lose and then lose again changing to Kuna. Exchange your CN$ there at a Bank/Post Office for best rate. We book our flights in January (beginning to mid) when the seat sales start. We have a great agent if you are interested you can private message me.

JoJo - booking.com and Kayak are all part of the Priceline Group! One you recommend and the other you wouldn't trust?

Prices in Croatia vary widely depending on where you stay. Dubrovnik and Hvar town are significantly more expensive than other parts of Croatia.

It would be easier if you took out the price of your flights. You can easily check out car hire prices online too.

Staying in one place for a week will cheaper than moving on every 2 days, as it would give you more apartment options. Work on €50-75 per night if travelling in peak season for an apartment.

@lbj17: I rarely trust internet companies, especially if they don't have a land address. There's no opportunity for recourse if something goes wrong. For flights, I almost always go to a travel agent. booking.com is also part of the Priceline group but you can communicate directly with owners. E-dreams is probably the worst internet company I have ever read about.

I even used expedia once, and that didn't go 100% smoothly either. It was worked out in the end, but enough to spook me. I use it only as a guide.
