RegioJet starts selling tickets to Croatia, prices up over the year
There will also be direct buses to the popular destination.
RegioJet has started selling tickets for the seasonal connection from Prague to Rijeka in Croatia. Compared to last year, passengers will pay at least CZK 100 (EUR 4) more per trip. The cheapest one-way ticket will cost CZK 690 (EUR 29). A ticket in a sleeper will cost at least CZK 890 (EUR 37).
These are the lowest prices, which are not valid for the whole summer: In July, the cheapest tickets are currently CZK 1,490, and most dates cost at least CZK 990. Only a few dates in the second half of September are currently available for CZK 690. According to the ticket terms and conditions, a ticket can be canceled free of charge up to 60 days before departure; if the ticket is canceled within 14 days before departure, the passenger will still receive a 50 percent refund. There is no refund for later cancelations.
Compared to last year, the operator has significantly reduced the number of connections. From June 16 to September 30, there will be three connections per week. Next year RegioJet plans to resume daily connections to Split. The main reason for this year’s timetable is closures on Croatian territory, which required services to be rerouted. Thanks to the country’s entry into the Schengen area, border controls are a thing of the past.
New direct bus services
The train will be followed in Rijeka and Ogulin by bus connections to most of the major Adriatic coastal resorts. In addition to Prague and Brno, trains will also stop to pick up and drop off passengers in Breclav, Bratislava in Slovakia, and Celje in Slovenia.
Direct buses will run daily from Prague to Split from June 26 to August 31, and once a week on Fridays in June and September. The buses will connect Prague, Brno, and Bratislava with the Croatian cities of Zadar, Sukošan, Biograd na Moru, Pakoštane, Vodice, Šibenik, Primošten, Trogir, and Split.
This is the fourth year that RegioJet trains have been operating in Croatia. During their existence, they have gained considerable attention and popularity. The first time RegioJet trains went to Croatia was in 2020 when they carried about 70,000 passengers. Since then, they have transported about 100,000 passengers in both directions every season.
