Travel London – Zagreb – Korcula

Keep Calm and Travel to Korcula Mug Last week, as soon as new WizzAir cheap flights from London (Luton) to Zagreb were announced, I was looking forward for spare minute to check their booking system to see if seats are available and what prices would work out.

The main reason for me checking these flights is the fact that there is a regular, daily bus service that runs from Zagreb to Korcula and back, so my initial thought was using this cheap flights plus bus ride to travel to Korcula from Britain on budget.

For the sake of experiment, I have chosen departure from London to Zagreb on Monday, 03.07.06, returning week or 10 days later.

My choice was Monday, as on Mondays, flight from Luton departs at 8am, and arrives in Zagreb at 11am, so there is a plenty of time to catch 7.30pm bus departure from Zagreb to Korcula.

All other departures from London Luton are afternoon ones, arriving at Zagreb Airport around 17.35 or even later. Arriving so late at the airport, it will be too ambitious to expect to catch the bus especially if you flight is late.

On the way back, the best option is to choose Wednesday, Friday or Sunday departures from Zagreb to Luton. You will leave Korcula day before at 7.45 pm and arrive in Zagreb following day early morning (around 6am) so you have almost all day to do sightseeing in Croatian capital.

After inputting all necessary info, total cost of flights work out as 62.05 GBP (tax included). Adding to it about 40 GBP for return bus ride to and from Korcula, total works out as 102.50 GBP.

Not bad bearing in mind travelling this way you have two half days for sightseeing in Zagreb.

If you fancy this flight & bus route here are the facts:

  • Flight booking: www.wizzair.com
  • Bus Zagreb – Korcula: Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri, Sat, Sun, departs Zagreb 19.30 arrives Korcula 6.30
  • Bus Korcula – Zagreb: Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri, Sat, Sun, departs Korcula 19.45 arrives Zagreb 06.00

Note: You can not buy bus ticket in advance it is served on first-come-first serve basis. Therefore, I would recommend buying your bus ticket as soon as you arrive in Zagreb.
