Getting to Croatia

Getting to Croatia is becoming easier year-on-year, with both budget and full-service airlines flying to various airports in summer. On top of this, buses, trains and ferries also shepherd holidaymakers into the country. Flights, cars and tours can be booked online at www.lonelyplanet.com/bookings.

Getting around Croatia

Transport in Croatia is reasonably priced, quick and generally efficient.

Car Useful for travelling at your own pace, or for visiting regions with minimal public transport. Cars can be hired in every city or larger town. Drive on the right.

Bus Reasonably priced, with comprehensive coverage of the country and frequent departures.

Boat Sizeable network of car ferries and faster catamarans all along the coast and the islands.

Air A surprisingly extensive schedule of domestic flights, especially in summer.

Train Less frequent and much slower than buses, with a limited network.
