        Scams on Cres island

        During your stay on Cres island, you do not have to be afraid of frauds and theft, because Croatia is a safe country, and you will be safe in it. You will rarely see a thief or a criminal running from the police in the street because they are almost no such occurrences. Also, as far as the retailers in Croatia, people are very friendly, sometimes they are even willing to negotiate the price, but they will definitely not try to trick you.

        The only thing you should be careful about is when you are driving with a taxi make sure that the taxi driver turns on the taximeter, because they are obliged to do that but sometimes they “forget” and charge you more then they should.
