Tips For Finding Cheap Flights to Montenegro

Fly in and Out of Different Airports

One of the tricks that's helped me save money on flights to Montenegro is flying in and out of different airports.

For example, I took a trip to Paris and flew out of Tivat Airport and back into Dubrovnik Airport. Both flights were with Transavia, but flying into Dubrovnik was much cheaper than the return flight to Tivat on the same day.

This can also help if you can't find flights on the specific days you want. For example, if you find a good price on a flight to Tivat but can only spend 5 days in Montenegro and can't find a flight out of Tivat on the day you need, you can look at departures from Podgorica and Dubrovnik instead.

You'll need to take car hire and transfers into consideration here, but it can be worth it. Hiring a car in Montenegro and dropping it in Croatia is usually very expensive (over €350), so it's better to leave the car in Montenegro and get a transfer to Dubrovnik.

Online Flight Search Engines

Online flight search engines can save you a lot of money, although you have to be prepared to do the work yourself. On our last trip, booking online saved us €400 on what our agent could find!

I also use online flight search engines to look for more convenient flights, for example, with shorter layovers. If you find a cheaper fare online or better flight combination, you can ask your agent to better it.

My favorite online flight search engine is WayAway (you can read my review here). It's saved me hundreds on flights and it's now my #1 go to for booking flights.
