Calculation based on a group of three passengers:
– total cost by bus is about 270 Kuna and 3-4 hours of travel
– total cost by taxi is about 750 Kuna and 1h20min of travel
– total cost by private transfer is about 600 Kuna and 1h20min of travel
Here’s the scenario:
Your final destination is Makarska, but Split is the closest city that you can fly into.
Split airport is located about one hour and 20 minutes from Makarska, which makes the trip just over 90 kilometers.
How would you find your way from point A to point B?
In reality, it’s really not as easy as it sounds.
Taxi from Split airport to Split, then bus to Makarska
One option would be taking a taxi from Split airport to the bus station in Split.
This ride alone will cost you upwards of 200 kuna, not to mention that you will need to purchase a bus ticket for 50 kuna to Makarska, plus pay extra for baggage.
Shuttle bus from Split Airport to Split, then bus to Makarska
Another option is to take the Split airport shuttle bus to the Split bus station. While this is slightly more convenient (and only around 35 kuna for a trip), you never know how long you’ll be waiting until the shuttle bus finally decides to leave from the airport, and the schedules are never really what they say they are. Even so, once you finally get to the Split bus station, you better hope you haven’t missed your bus or that the buses haven’t already sold out!
With either option, you’ll have to first make the journey to the Split bus station, then hope your journey can continue smoothly on the bus to Makarska. Since there are unfortunately no ferry or catamaran options and a daily car rental could cost you upwards of 100 euros during the high season (and a taxi from the airport to Makarska even more), what option is left?
NEW attraction (from 2020): Skywalk Biokovo
A private transfer from Split Airport to Makarska will cost you only 80 euros, and the headache it will save you in the end is priceless.
