Getting from Sarajevo Airport to Sarajevo
Although it is a quite big town, Sarajevo unfortunately does not have any organized passenger transport from or to the airport. So, the options that are left are public transport, taxi and private transfers. Public transport (bus, trolleybus) is not the best option, especially if one has lots of luggage. You can find lots of taxis waiting outisde the airport and if you decide to take one, agree on the price before setting off. The last option is to book a transfer prior to your arrival at the airport - this option has the following advantages:
⇒ Door to door service (no hassle with heavy luggage)
⇒ Usually cheaper than the taxi service
⇒ No waiting time at the airport, as the driver is waiting for you, even if your flight is delayed
⇒ As you can choose the vehicle type, you can choose a bigger car if you are travelling in a group, so all of you will stay together during the travel
The travel time from the airport to the city is usually 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the period of the year and of the traffic.
