A traveller from Vienna wants to meet up with her friends in Kotor, Montenegro. Because there were no good flights to the nearby Tivat Airport, she instead booked a flight to Podgorica Airport, arriving on 6 March at 14:30. What are the best ways of getting from Podgorica Airport to Kotor? Here are the two options she is considering so far:
- Renting a car in Podgorica Airport. While she has a driving licence, she has never driven regularly, and not at all in the last five years. So she is unsure about driving alone in a foreign country with an unfamiliar car. What is the route like between Podgorica Airport and Kotor? Will this be a safe and easy trip for an unskilled driver, or do the road conditions or traffic make this unsuitable?
- Train to Podgorica, then bus to Kotor. There's a train from the Aerodrom station near Podgorica Airport to Podgorica, and thence a bus to Kotor. Is this connection safe and reliable? If so, is it advisable to buy tickets in advance or is it OK to get them on the day from the driver/station?
Are there any other options worth considering? She has hand luggage only and no mobility problems, so walking to change connections (say, a kilometre or so) is no problem, provided the path is simple and suitable for a wheeled bag.
