FAQ Split – Stari Grad ferry

How much time before departure do I need to be at the port in Split?

As there is no car queuing system at the port in Split, cars are loaded in the order they arrived at the port, so the time you need to arrive before the scheduled departure depends on which time of the year you are travelling. During the winter season arriving at the port 30 minutes before the scheduled departure time should be fine, during the summer season, in some cases 1 hour is enough, in others maybe 2 hours all depending on how busy a travel day it is.
