Dubrovnik to Makarska

What is the easiest/quickest/ normal route to drive from Dubrovnik to Makarska? With a hire car do people mostly use the ferry crossing from Trpany to Ploce or go through the bosnia border?

Thanks

I think easiest is to go through Bosnia and use the costal route. You should check, but car should have the papers for crossing through Bosnia (Green Card).

Hi

Have done this journey in both directions in our own car without problems an easy drive.

However beware Bosnia is usually excluded on European travel insurance and check for the car as well. If it's a hire car check with the company.

The stretch of road is about 10mls inside Bosnia.

Hope this helps

It will not take you much longer (Maybe 30 Minutes more) if you take the bus instead of renting a car.

Most use Bosnia - car hire from Dubrovnik should include the green card as standard as anyone going north is likely to need it. Check your policy - some companies try and make you pay extra for it.
