Travel Tips for Croatia

There are three main airports with direct flights from Europe; Dubrovnik (DBV), Split (SPU) and Croatia’s inland capital, Zagreb (ZAG). Depending on where you wish to begin your yacht rental, it may be better to fly to one of these airports and then get a regional flight to a smaller more local airport.

Please note that there are train services inland, but that many coastal cities do not have train stations, hereby making bus a suitable public transport method.
