The current occupancy is mostly realized by filling the accommodation facilities in canceled and free terms at significantly lower prices, so we anticipate that ultimately this year’s financial results will be incomparable with last year’s “, said the president of the Family Tourism Association of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce Martina Nimac Kalcina, adding that due to the connection of family accommodation with a number of other activities, it is necessary to adopt additional measures to help renters.  The Croatian Chamber of Commerce survey was conducted on a sample of over 2100 respondents, and is being conducted in several phases until the end of this season in order to provide as accurate data as possible on the situation in the family accommodation market. Only 6 percent of them answered that they do not have significant financial losses. Among the surveyed service providers, a third are retirees, among whom 75 percent are those without whom income is significantly endangered (46 percent) or subsistence (29 percent). About 20 percent of them need a moratorium on the existing loan, and a similar number need a new loan to survive until next season. The results of the HGK survey on the impact of coronavirus on the business of family accommodation providers showed that as many as 95 percent of respondents have a reduced number of reservations compared to last year, despite three quarters of them reducing prices, mostly up to 30 percent.
