I land in Dubrovnik in early May. I will be spending 3 nights and 2 full days there, then heading to Mostar for 2 nights and 1 full day, then back to Split for 2 nights and 1 full day.
I then plan to fly to Istanbul, Turkey from Split. At least that is my current plan.
I just noticed that it is fairly expense and it takes about 5 hours to fly from Split to Istanbul because of a layover in Zagreb.
Can anyone offer me suggestions that might save me time and/or money getting to Istanbul by plane?
I was considering changing things and going Dubrovnik - Split - Mostar, then carrying on to Sarajevo after Mostar and flying from there, but it adds an extra bus ride and only saves a little money.
Any suggestions that might save time or money? Cheaper flight options? Better airports near Split?
