Getting to and from Dubrovnik Airport

Just arrived on Dubrovnik airport, taking a bus to travel further

Transport to and from Dubrovnik airport is well organized. It is a busy hub from where there are several options you can choose for travelling to or from. Dubrovnik Airport does not have a train station so getting to and from Dubrovnik involves either taking a shuttle bus, taxi(cab) service or pre-arranged transfer to Dubrovnik town centre.

By Airport Bus Shuttle:


The recently introduced non-stop airport shuttle service to and from Dubrovnik Airport, calling along the way at the Pile, Old Town bus stop, ferry port and Dubrovnik’s main bus terminal makes travelling to and from Dubrovnik Airport to the Old Town pretty simple.

Bus shuttle services operate the Dubrovnik Airport to central Dubrovnik bus service for each flight’s arrival or departure, 7 days a week all year round. It leaves the Airport 30 minutes after each flight arrival.

The bus will take you into the heart of Dubrovnik for 10 Euro one way (see below my tickets).
There are three pick-up and drop-off points for this route: Dubrovnik’s Bus Station in the Gruž suburb, the Pile bus stop @ Old Town  (near the city walls) and the Dubrovnik Airport bus stop. At the Dubrovnik Airport, the coach picks up and drops off points and bus bays are situated in front of the terminal building itself (see below).
From the main bus station in Gruz, the Airport shuttle bus departs 90 minutes prior to each flight.
As bus prices are now 7.5 Euro one-way, this is the cheapest way to travel to and from Dubrovnik Airport. Note, you can now book a ticket online in advance, at the airport or on the bus.

Also, don’t worry if your flight arrives early or late, a bus will still wait for the flight regardless of flight delays.

Bus ticket from the airport to the town

By taxi:

A Taxi station is right in front of the airport’s main entrance. From there you can easily get a taxi to your destination. The cost of a taxi to the town is about 300 kuna (40 Euro). You can also take Uber from there, it will work out a bit cheaper.

Above photo: getting into the minicab at the airport – cars, taxis, minibuses and buses are all waiting for passengers right in front of the main entrance of the airport. It is very easy to get one there. It takes just about 50 meters to reach your transport while carrying suitcases or bags.

By bus and taxi

If you want to save some money on your transport, you can also consider taking a 7.5 euro bus shuttle from the airport to the town (check here) and from there take a taxi to your accommodation. If you stay near the Old Town, Ploce or Lapad, get off the bus in Pile.

If you are staying near Gruz or Kono, get off the bus at the main bus terminal. Right next to both stations there is also a taxi rank (see the map) from where you can take a short taxi ride to your destination. You can also get Uber from there which works out just a bit cheaper. The total cost of this mode of transport should be up to 17 Euro.
