Popular ride sharing platform that launched in 2012 has arrived in Dubrovnik in June 2016 and since then it saw a rapid expansion in Dubrovnik due to its popularity among tourists and locals.

Uber first started offering its service in the capital city of Croatia, Zagreb, and it started slowly spreading over the coastal cities in Croatia.

The starting price of UberX service in Dubrovnik is 9 kuna, the price of each kilometer is 5 kuna, the price per minute is 0.5 kuna and the minimum price for the service is 15 kuna. Uber prices in Dubrovnik are generally 30-40 % cheaper than normal taxi services.

For the latecomers, UBER is a revolutionary app that connects passengers with vetted drivers. Users can easily order their pick-up service by tapping on their smartphone and setting up their location: the app provides information about the driver and then tracks the arrival of their car. You can sign up for the service via the app or at so the payments are taken via the app from the account you set up or alternatively passengers can also pay for the ride in cash to the driver if they so chose in the app.

Prices are set by user’s smartphone tracking their start and finish location giving you information about the duration of journey and estimated time of arrival.

The launch date of UberBOAT, a new Uber service that provides nautical transport, is getting closer as the Uber Croatia General Manager Davor Tremac announces testing this summer on Croatia’s Dalmatian coast. The aim of of the new service is to improve the traffic connection between the mainland and islands and between individual islands while focusing on both international and local users. The transport will be carried by speedboats of different sizes. Transport companies which are already registered for these activities and operate their charter management business through professional companies will be able to join the new initiative provided by popular UBER app.

UberBOAT will work the same way as popular ride-sharing platform: once you’re by the seaside you can choose UberBOAT option and if there is empty boat available, you can set your pick up location and request UberBOAT.
