Remote in Croatia Travel and Work Program FAQs

The application process allows us to get to know you, so that we can customize your experience and connect you with the most like-minded individuals.

No! We believe that diversity of age, as well as background and life experience is what makes each trip unique. As long as you are old enough to travel, you are welcome to apply for the program.

We create just enough structure so that you can plug into the different activities, workshops, and people as you wish. Nothing is required, and everything is voluntary; however, we do look for people who contribute. Our role is to provide a platform so that you know what’s happening and can participate, as you like.

Most days are unstructured workdays – you can work from our central coworking space, a coffee shop, the beach or a park, depending on the destination :). We tend to have a set group meal once a week where everyone can check in and catch up with each other, as well as numerous other dinners, events, activities and surprises throughout each week that everyone is welcome to join. Please see our “The Experience” page for more details.

We do not provide any of these. However, during your stay our Local ambassador will make sure that you are in a safe area and that they provide you with all emergency contacts as well as make themselves available to you for support. In regards to Travel and Health Insurance, you have the option of purchasing your own. Please ask us during your interview, so that we can make suggestions.

Maybe…but not really. It depends on how good you are at budgeting.

However, we offer everything that “solo travel” can’t provide.

First, we take care of all the details: accommodations, co-working office, and all other logistics. We take you to the best spots, curate the best experiences and help you immerse yourself in the local culture and community.  This saves you countless hours of planning and struggle. Plus, we have “local ambassadors” on the ground to take care of everything you may ever need!

But our program is not just about traveling: it is about creating unforgettable, meaningful experiences that will allow you to grow personally and professionally.

Why and How? Because traveling with a community of amazingly talented, passionate, and inspiring people is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. We’ve found that the relationships formed with the other group members have invaluable professional and personal benefits that last well after the trip has ended.

In today’s world, we are becoming more and more deprived of meaningful human connection. Remote Connections is an advocate for meaningful life experiences and deep human connections. No experience is as good as it can be, unless it is shared.

Please visit our “The Experience” page to learn more about what is and what is not included in the cost of this program.

In short, Remote Connections does not cover all of your meals, although we do cover some meals during our events with the whole group, we do not cover personal expenses and travel expenses outside of the itinerary that we have planned for you. Also, we do not cover your flights to and from Croatia.

Currently, we are not equipped to accommodate pets and children. But we love couples. In fact, we offer a 15% discount on our rates for couples. But please do apply separately. If you are both accepted in the program, indicate that you are a couple during the application process.

We understand life happens. You are free to leave the program early without a refund if you signed up for two weeks or one month. If you sign up for longer, but can’t stay, you will not be responsible for the days that you do not stay.

Accommodations vary from city to city and are based on “busy season,” and whether we are staying in the city or on an island.  We can guarantee that you will have a private bedroom that is clean and safe and has Internet. Note that sometimes, we may be in private apartments, other times we may be in villas.

If you have special preferences when it comes to accommodations or would like to have a private apartment, we will be more than happy to accommodate your request at an additional cost.

Let us worry about that. But basically, whatever makes sense and will get us there in a timely manner. We use: planes, ferries, buses, private vans, depending on the destination. The cost of transportation between cities, regions and nearby countries is included.

Yes. As long as you stay for two weeks within one itinerary.

The maximum is 12 to 15 people. However, please note that we will cancel or reschedule an itinerary if we have less than 5 people. However, this has not happened yet, as most of our itineraries are always sold out. In case it should happen, we will refund you and make other arrangements with you to reschedule or cancel your itinerary.  

That is between you and your employer. There have been a few participants’ employers pay for a retreat in the past. We can promise a productive work environment, structure, and much more.

Because we have people coming from all different parts of the world and countries, therefore, we cannot help with visas. However, if you require any proof of payment to the program, proof of accommodations and proof of acceptance into the program, we will be more than happy to provide these things upon request.

These trips are small. There’s only about 12 or 15 people on each trip. All of them will be sold out in advance. We recommend booking far in advanced with a deposit. Most trips will be full or nearly full within 90 days of the start of a retreat.

Once you have been accepted into the program, you’re invited to join us, your spot is held as soon as you pay the $1,200 deposit. Deposits are refundable less a $200 cancellation fee up to 45 days before the retreat begins. You can also transfer a deposit, one time and at no cost, to another itinerary that starts within 6 months of your original retreat. This can be done up to 45 days before your original retreat start date. Final payments are due within 45 days of your retreat’s start date, and no transfers or refunds are available after that date.

We welcome friends of participants to join as guests for a few days. However, to keep things respectful for others on the trip, we do have a few rules:

Each guest must pay $100 per night and each participant can have their guest(s) for a maximum of 5 nights per month.

  • This nightly fee includes access to our coworking space and unsettled events, workshops, dinner parties, lunches, etc.
  • All guests are required to check-in with our staff and sign a waiver.
  • More than 1 guest is not allowed at the same time because it is disruptive and is not fair to paying participants.
  • No guests are allowed the first 5 nights of the experience because of exclusive events.
  • Self-accommodation participants can have guests join at our coworking space and events, workshops, dinner parties, lunches, etc. for a fee. Inquire with your staff, please.

We have received several questions about putting together a private retreat for a startup or corporate team. We would love to talk to find out if our interests are aligned. Our founders have run countless workshops, seminars, conferences, and retreats, and we know exactly how to combine a focused work environment with adventures that facilitate camaraderie and reenergize your team. The reason it is called recreation is because new adventures are proven to improve creation and focus. We would be more than happy to discuss your ideas, please contact us.

We would love to answer any additional questions you may have, so please get in touch with us. We love to talk to people and be a resource for your work and travel plans.
