Taxis can be found at the entrance to The Garden Resort in the main car park and they are metered.

They must also provide you with a print-out receipt at the conclusion of your journey. 

Drugs?
Drugs are looked upon very seriously by the Croatian Police.

What is the train and bus service like in Croatia?
Basically, forget trains! The buses are altogether quicker, cheaper and connect all cities with a regular service. You can buy tickets on-board the bus, but you should get a receipt, as longer journeys have service stops included in the travel time.

Can I hire a car?

Yes, so long as you are over 21 years old and have held a licence for minimum of 1 year.

How can I get from the airport to the festival site?
We recommend that you book an organised airport coach transfer through Shuttle Tours, who will bring you from Zadar or Split airport with lots of other festival revellers, direct to Tisno. Their website is www.shuttletours.net 
Alternatively, you can make your own way to fit in with your travel plans. There are aiport buses from all airports to the main centre bus terminals, and from all cities you will find regular buses to Zadar or Šibenik. Once at Zadar or Šibenik main bus terminal, take a local bus to Tisno.

What is the nearest airport?
Zadar is the nearest airport - only 40 mins by car. Split is an hour by car and Zagreb 3 hours by car. These journey times are for the highway route and will take a little longer by bus/coach.
