Best Route From DC Area To Split, Croatia

Wed Jun 06, 2007 9:46 am

Hi all:

I just got the okay today to attend a conference in Split, Croatia in early September (2-Sept. to 7-Sept.). What I wanted to know was the best way to get there. By best I mean a nice balance between cost and convenience. I am currently getting airfares of up to $1600. Is a air/train combination worth the trouble?

Is the $1600 fare about what I can expect?

Thanks.

Looks like KLM IAD-AMS connecting to Croatia Airlines AMS-SPU.

$1600 looks about right for RT.

You could save about $100 by taking BA from IAD, but then you would have to transfer from LHR to LGW. Just not worth the hassle if you ask me.
