In order to increase the level of security and facilitate the most carefree vacation for their guests, leading tourist companies have organized the possibility of testing their guests in tourist destinations along the Adriatic coast.
Testing is intended for guests coming from countries that have introduced an obligation to test when returning to their home country. Most of them also provide testing free of charge, or subsidize testing, especially for guests from Austria who, due to new circumstances, have to produce a negative PCR test for Covid-19 when returning to Austria from Croatia.
Maistra: PCR testing free of charge for stays in Maistra's facilities is provided until September 15th, according to the following criteria:
• For reservations totaling 1000 € up to two people free of charge
• For reservations totaling 1500 € it is possible to test three people free of charge
• For reservations totaling from 2000 € it is possible to test up to 4 people free of charge
Valamar Riviera: All Valamar Riviera open facilities offer free of charge PCR testing for Austrian guests if the cost of testing is less than 50 percent of the total stay value. The above applies to individual guests, OTA guests and flat rate guests in campsites who are Austrian citizens.
Arena Hospitality Group: the company accepts the cost of PCR testing for guests coming from Austria, in total or in part, depending on the total length of stay.
Aminess Hotels & Campsites: the company co-finances the cost of testing in its campsites with an amount depending on the total bill.
Guests of the above companies can get information at the receptions of the facilities in which they stay.
