Has anyone hired a driver they could recommend in Split? My sister and I need to travel from Split to Mostar the 20th of June. We were planning to travel by bus, but there doesn't seem to be any early ones (earliest I'm seeing is 10:55-1515). Arriving after 3pm seems like not enough time to enjoy Mostar, and we head to Dubrovnik the next day. So now I'm looking into hiring a private care to drive us. I looked into rental cars, but with the one-way fee tacked on, it's not affordable. Thanks!
There are many companies providing private transfers from Split. However, the price for a private transfer will definitely be much higher than renting a car and paying one-way fee. Let me know if I'm wrong and good luck
Our hotel in Mostar has someone who can do it for 90 Euros. I was also quoted 170 Euros and 140 Euros. I looked into renting a car, it was 234 Euros for getting the cheapest automatic and the one-way fee for picking the car up at 0800 and returning it in another city in Croatia by noon the next day. I couldn't find any rental companies that both Split and Mostar had in common to rent & return the same day. But I think it would be hard to beat 90 Euros anyway. It'll be nice to be passengers, as we can enjoy the passing scenery without having to stress about driving or directions.
No need for expensive transfer, there are always early buses leaving from Split to Mostar early morning around 6am.
Those early morning buses are not showing up in my searches but we might find they are there when we arrive. Since it is a holiday, I don't want to take any chances. Also, the nice thing about private car vs bus is that the car is much faster.
The fees you have been quoted for a private transfer are very reasonable. We used Dubrovnik Riviera Tours for transfer from Korvula to Dubrovnik with a tour of the Peljesac wine region on the way. Spectacular! Later, we rented a car for a few days for day trips and wish in hindsight we’d used private transfers more.
