It is possible to cancel the trip and get a refund of the carriage charge if the request is submitted within:

  • 2 hours prior the departure on domestic bus lines
  • 6 hours prior the departure on international bus lines

In case of trip cancellation, there are two possibilities:

  • cash refund minus the 10 percent handling fee
  • a coupon in the full amount of the carriage charge with a validity period of 12 months from the date of issue (the coupon can not be redeem in Arriva Croatia mobile app)

When buying a new ticket and using a coupon, the following applies:

  • if the carriage charge when purchasing a new ticket is higher than the available amount on the coupon the passenger is required to pay the difference between the amount of the coupon and the ticket.
  • if the carriage charge when purchasing a new ticket is lower than the available amount on the coupon a new coupon with the remaining amount and a new validity period will be issued, which can then be used when purchasing another ticket.

When requesting a refund for a ticket purchased on the bus, the coupon cannot be issued. It is only possible to get the cash refund minus the 10 percent of the full amount.

Reservations and station service are non-refundable.
