How to get cheap from Zagreb airport to city center: from 0,5 euro

There are 5 ways to get from/to Zagreb Airport to/from the city center:

The cheapest way to travel between the airport and center of Zagreb is…

City bus to airport – 0,5 euro

city bus number 290 runs daily every 35 minutes from one of the central squares of the city – Kvaternikov trg to the airport. Bus 290 starts running from 4:20, on Sunday from 5:20 to 23:25; travel time to airport 25-30 minutes. The ticket price for bus 290 is only 4 kn, or app. 0,5 euro, which makes this method the cheapest way to get to/from Zagreb International Airport.

Shuttle bus to/from Zagreb airport – 4 euro

Get to/from Zagreb airport from/to city center

The second more economical and more comfortable way to get to/from Zagreb Airport is Shuttle bus of Croatiaairlines. The bus runs daily and regularly from Zagreb Central Bus Station.

The shuttle to the airport runs non-stop and you are provided with a seat on the bus. The ticket price for the shuttle to/from the airport is 30 kn, or app. 4 euro. Baggage is paid separately.

Individual transfer to/from Zagreb airport – from 31 euro

We are moving further towards higher price and comfort with a individual transfer from Zagreb airport to the city center.
Of the pluses, of course, comfort, no waiting, delivery to any address.

That is why it is difficult for me to say the exact price of such an individual transfer.

For example, for orientation I will write the cost of a transfer from the airport to the center of Zagreb 31 euros for 3 passengers with 2 suitcases.

You can find out the actual price for a transfer according to your requirements on the international service for ordering transfers


In the highest price category, of course – a taxi. But sometimes a taxi is the only possible option. And as usual, several free taxis are waiting for their customers near the airport building.

The cost of the trip depends on the season, time of day and distance, so it is so difficult to write some approximate amount that it is almost impossible.

Separately, I note that UBER international company works in Croatia and you can order UBER taxi through their mobile application.

Rental car

Rent a car upon arrival… what’s not the way to get from the airport to your destination?!
It is more profitable to take a car at the airport’s rent a car office and return it there, in which case the price will be without a surcharge for “return at another office”.

As a rule, the choice of cars for rent at the airport is the best, as this service is very popular.
