How to get to | Croatia

This is part of a series of blog entries on how to get to countries and places. Here is a link to the index. I plan to eventually cover every country and some other places. If you have a request for a particular country or place please use the email me link at top right, or leave a comment.

Croatia is very easy to get to, by ferry from Italy and Slovenia, by road or bus from all neighbouring countries, by train from north and east, and by air. Flight options are numerous and include:
  • Star Alliance - Austrian (Dubrovnik & Split & Zagreb), blue1 (Dubrovnik & Split), Croatia (Dubrovnik & Split & Zagreb), Lufthansa (Dubrovnik & Split & Zagreb), SAS (Split & Zagreb), TAP (Zagreb), Turkish (Zagreb)
  • Oneworld - British Airways (Dubrovnik), Iberia (Dubrovnik & Zagreb), Malev (Split & Zagreb)
  • Sky Team - Aeroflot (Split & Zagreb), Air France (Zagreb), Czech (Split & Zagreb)
  • Other selected - most European low cost airlines

TIP There are more flight options in summer than in winter with several airlines and routes operated on a seasonal basis.

TIP Fares are lowest on routes with competition through low cost carriers.

TIP Many fares on Croatia Airlines allow domestic add-on flight for little or no cost. If economy fare is high (ie the cheap fares have sold out) check discounted business class fares as these are normally cheaper than full fare economy.
