I will be travelling in September, and the only way (time,money) I can continue the second part of my trip is by arriving in split. For the second part of my trip, I want to go to Dubrovnik, sarajevo, Mostar, and various places in Montenegro. Planning to rent a car in Dubrovnik (and returning it there, as flying out of dubrovnik at the end) after staying there a couple days. I have figured out 2 ways to make this work, looking for some advice:
Option 1: bus from split to Dubrovnik. Stay 2 nights. Rent car and make a circle, going down to Montenegro, then up through Bosnia to Sarajevo, Mostar, back to Dubrovnik
Option 2: go from Split to Sarajevo with bus, then to Mostar, Dubrovnik, also with bus. Then when renting car in Dubrovnik, go down to Montenegro, and back up to Dubrovnik at the end to return car and get flight out.
Any advice on these options would be truly appreciated!
