Transportation from Sarajevo Airport


The easiest way from the airport is by taxi or rental car. Public transport is very lightly frequented.


There is a taxi rank right outside the terminal, which is open 24/7. The price is fixed and there is no meter. To the bus or train station pay 30 bam, to the historic centre 40 bam.

You can only pay in cash, euros are also commonly accepted. If you pay in euros, the amount should be half the value in Bosnian marks.

Bolt or Uber do not operate in Sarajevo, but you can use the popular local app MojTaxi.

Rent a car

If Sarajevo airport will be the starting point for exploring the whole of Bosnia and Herzegovina, renting a car seems to be the most convenient option.

In particular, exploring the mountains, natural beauty and small villages is very difficult without a car.

Many local and large multinational rental companies operate at the airport. Prices for a week start at around 170 eur.
