Transportation from Airport

TAXI (very important)
Taxi fare from the airport to The Crowne Plaza Hotel should be a maximum of 2,000 RSD (approx. 17EUR/19USD).

Once you clear customs, there is a booth for taxis in the waiting hall. Please get your taxi there and they will give you further instructions. There will be a lot of taxi drivers asking you whether you need a taxi, but for the best chance of these fares, use the taxi booth.

For a ride-share, Uber-like experience, visitors to Belgrade recommend the app Car:Go (Serbian version of Uber or Lyft) for getting around.

Ticket price is 300 RSD (approx. 2.50 EUR/3.00 USD) and can be purchased in the bus. Please make sure to have local currency, (RSD – Serbian dinars) because other currencies are not accepted.

Minibus goes every 20 minutes during the day, and every hour after 19:30 (7:30 PM), during the night as well. Approximate travel time from Nikola Tesla Airport to Slavija square is 30 minutes. The bus departure point is in front of the airport building (literally under the main entrance- the underpass)

Timetable and map

If you have a lot of luggage, it can be a hassle to use the airport bus, as the space inside the bus is limited, and there is no additional storage.

If you need to get to the main bus station, you should hop off at the train station where the bus regularly stops, as the two stations are conveniently located next to each other.

The bus has the same route on going from the city center to the airport, so you can hop on at the same stops.

Opposite the Crowne Plaza hotel there is a public complimentary parking, however it may be difficult to find a parking place during working hours.


Pre-paid SIM cards are available for purchase at kiosks all over Belgrade . Most street corners in busy areas will have 24-hour kiosks that carry a variety of items like tobacco, snacks, newspapers, and SIM cards (the kiosks may not have all mobile companies available, but each company is similar in pricing and service). There is a shopping mall within a 15 minute walk from Crowne Plaza. If you are going directly to the hotel via a TAXI from the airport, you may not need a SIM card immediately as there will be WiFi when you arrive at Crowne Plaza.

If you do purchase a SIM card right away, there are three primary companies. Each SIM company is more or less the same. Click the link for more information about how to set up and where to purchase.
