Buses from Dubrovnik to Mostar are a great way to get from Croatia’s most famous city to Bosnia and Herzegovina’s most beloved one.
There are daily buses between these two cities in the Balkans. Coaches operate throughout the year, with summer services being more frequent than winter ones.
In the peak season there are around three departures each day from the Dubrovnik bus station, which is located near the ferry port. One leaves in the morning around 8:00, one in the afternoon around 15:00, and the other in the early evening around 17:00.
In the winter there are around two or three daily services. As with the summer schedule, they are spaced out over the course of the day. Dubrovnik bus schedules change frequently, so ask your accommodation to call the bus station and confirm departure times before you travel.
The journey time on buses from Dubrovnik to Mostar is around 3 hours and 30 minutes. The ultimate travel time depends on if the bus leaves Dubrovnik on time, if there is traffic along the way, and if it takes a long time to cross the border between Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina (be sure to bring your passport).
Buses on this route are generally high-quality coaches. They have comfortable seats that recline, and they offer luggage holds for large bags. Air conditioning is also standard, which is great if you are traveling through the Balkans in the heat of summer.
The price of a one-way ticket for buses from Dubrovnik to Mostar is around 10 euros. If you are visiting Croatia during the busy summer months, make sure to buy a ticket at least a day ahead of time. If you are visiting outside of that time, you can buy your bus ticket at the Dubrovnik bus station right before you travel to Bosnia.
