So, let me repeat my questions: Do taxi drivers take credit cards? If

not, will they take Euros, at a reasonable exchange rate?



Why don't you ask here? http://www.dubrovnikairporttaxi.com/

Too hard to find?



They quote prices in Euros so it seems reasonable to assume that they accept

them as a form of payment.







Yes, but they aren't really a taxi service, which is what I asked

about. They are a prebooked transfer service.



Still, 35€ seems like a good price and I may use them .


If you do use a taxi, order one from the official taxi service in the
airport. That way the price will be fixed at the outset and you won't
get any nasty surprises when you arrive. Four years ago we did that in
St Petersburg, and although the price was a little higher than some of
the cowboy operators were advertising that's what it actually cost.
Friends of ours who went to the same hotel as we did but used a cowboy
taxi paid five times as much as we did. Dubrovnik may be more civilized
than St Petersburg, but I wouldn't count on it. You can ask when you
book it what sort of payment they accept. If it turns out to be
Croatian money only then at that moment you can get some from a machine.



OK, thanks. I'm leaning toward the
http://www.dubrovnikairporttaxi.com/ service, but we'll see.


If you're getting so tied up fixing a cab from the airport, how on earth are you going to survive Dubrovnik?

Maybe there are Ubers there?



I thought that I had already checked, and Uber wasn't available there.
But your message prompted me to check again, and I was wrong--they
*are* available.

So that's what I'll use. Thanks very much.

Something that occurred to me too. :-)
