Dubrovnik Airport Shuttle Bus

The regular airport shuttle bus service is provided by Platanus travel agency in Dubrovnik. 

The buses meet all scheduled flights at Dubrovnik Airport for transfer to the city of Dubrovnik (30-40 minute travel time, depending on the road traffic). You can find them just outside the airport building (to the right).

If you plan to explore beautiful Konavle region (countryside south of Dubrovnik) or Peljesac peninsula (famous for oysters and wines), consider renting a car straight from Dubrovnik Airport.

Which is better: the shuttle bus or private car transfer?

With airport shuttle bus ride to the city costing €10 per person, we think that it's not so affordable when compared with private car transfer which can be booked for the price of €38 per ride.

Bear in mind that once you arrive to the city you'll have to search for a city bus or take a taxi which is pretty expensive (3-4 minute ride costs around €15).

Considering these facts, a private car transfer would be a great choice for getting from the airport to the city.

We recommend Welcome Pickups for a reliable and safe transfers (English-speaking drivers) that can be arranged at any time of day and night. Plus, it's a door-to-door service which will take you directly to your accommodation.

Book ahead your private car transfer (for the same price as regular taxi)!
