From the airport to the city
The transport from the Airport is not complicated and there are several possibilities:
1. Dubrovnik Airport buses leave shortly after the arrival of aircrafts on all scheduled flights. The bus costs 35 Croatian Kuna (5 Euros) per person and it goes to Pile Gate (Centre of the City) and Bus Terminal (Main Bus Station).
2. Taxi: Taxis are available just outside the terminal building. A taxi (for four persons) from the airport to Dubrovnik should cost about 250-300HRK (or 35- 45 Euros) and take about 1/2 hour, if there's no traffic. Advice: establish the price before you get into the taxi!
3. Pre-booked Airport Transfer: Probably the most convenient. There are several options of booking on-line and they offer vehicles of various sizes (minivans etc.) so that the price per person can range from 5-10 Euros.
