It often happens that people travelling by, car or bus get a bit confused about how to calculate the price, so here are a few examples
Car with passengers
If you are e.g. 3 adults and a regular car going on the ferry, the price calculations for one-way tickets are the following, car (Less than 5 meters in length, and two meters in height) = 131 Kn + 3 adults (3 * 26 Kn) = 78Kn, so in total, your price will be 209 Kn (131 + 78). As there is no discount for return tickets the round trip price will be 418 kn or roughly 139 Kn per person.
Bus with passengers
For a bus the way of calculating is different, if you have a bus with space for 30 people and 22 passengers, the price is 556 Kn, which includes the bus and the passengers!
