Top Tips for Finding the best
Flights To Montenegro

I've been booking long-haul (ever travelled for 55 hours straight with a toddler?) and short-haul flights from Montenegro for both our family and my customers. I've learned a lot along the way and here are my top tips for finding the best flights to Montenegro.

Finding flights to Montenegro is relatively easy, with a total of four international airports to choose from:

  • Tivat Airport
  • Podgorica Airport
  • Dubrovnik Airport
  • Tirana Airport

Montenegro has two of its own international airports – Podgorica in the capital city and Tivat on the coast, in the Bay of Kotor.

You can also fly into Dubrovnik’s international airport, Cilipi, which is just a half hour drive from the Montenegrin border. And at a stretch, if you're staying in the south, Tirana airport in Albania is a 2 hour drive from Montenegro's southern-most town, Ulcinj.

You can read more about all of these airports and get help choosing the right one on my Montenegro Airports page.

Once you've chosen your destination airport, there are lots of ways to find flights to Montenegro. After all these years travelling back and forth between New Zealand and Montenegro, we've got a few go-to ways we use to make sure we get the best deal.


Multi-City Flight Search

A multi-city flight search is when you fly into one airport and out of another. This is a great trick and can save you a lot of money. The key is, you have to be flexible with your arrival and departure airports. Here's how it works:

  • Fill in your details in the search box below and click Search Flights.
  • You'll be taken to the Skyscanner site where you can see a lot of flight options for the destinations and dates you've chosen.
  • Make sure you check the 'show whole month' option if you're flexible with your travel dates. This will bring up the cheapest fares for each day and you might find you can save a lot of money by flying on different dates. This is especially true around public holidays and school holidays. 
  • Note down the price of the ticket option that best suits you. 
  • Now, go back into your search and click on 'multi-city'. Now try searching with Tivat as your arrival airport and Dubrovnik as your departure airport. And visa versa. Note down the best fares so that you can compare. 
  • Again, check the whole month to see the cheapest fares. 

Travel Agents

Although booking online is more and more popular, I always ask our travel agent to look for flights for us. 

As good as the flight search engines have become, nothing can replace a real, live human searching. And the longer your trip is, the truer this is. 

If you're booking direct flights to Montenegro, it's very simple to use one of the booking engines to search flights and be done with it without even leaving your couch. 

But if you're booking your flights to Montenegro from, say New Zealand, and will have a 35-50 hour (yes, you read that right, Kiwis are pretty used to long-haul flights!) trip, a travel agent could save you hours in stopovers and unnecessary flights. 


Online Flight Search Engines

These things are great. A lot of work sometimes, but great. On our last trip we travelled separately and ended up booking one set of tickets with our agent and the other set online. Booking online saved us €400 on what our agent could find!

Even if you're using an agent, checking the online booking engines can save you money and make sure you're getting the best flights. If you find a cheaper fare online or better flight combination, you can ask your agent to better it.

I have a few favourites that we've had success with over the years to share with you. My main criteria are ease of use and the ones that return the best prices obviously!


Skyscanner

I have been booking flights to Montenegro for both our family and customers for many years now. Skyscanner is my go-to flight search engine whenever I need to search for flights. I love it because:

  • You can check a box to add nearby airports which automatically brings up results for airports near where you're searching.
  • You can bring up the month view which shows you when fares are lowest. 
  • It has a great range of filters which let you narrow you search by number of stopovers, price, shortest trip and airline.
  • It consistently has the best options and prices.

Try Skyscanner for yourself below.


Kiwi.Com

Kiwi.com is my first go-to search engine for flights. The first time I used it I was like 'where have you been all my life?!' Why do I think this search engine is so great? Let's see:

  • You can search multiple departure and arrival destinations - at once! That's right, you can search for flights to and from multiple airports in one search and compare the results. No more trying to compare flights across 10 tabs!
  • You can see the fares in the calendar. That means if you're flexible with your dates, you can see the cheapest days to fly directly in the calendar. Again, you don't have to do multiple searches to find the cheapest fares.

These two points alone, make Kiwi.com one of the top flight search engines in my experience. Give it a try!



Between your local travel agent and the many online options, you'll have no trouble finding good flights to Montenegro. Don't forget to check which airports are the best for you to fly into before you start your search!
