Montenegro has international airports at Podgorica and Tivat. JAT Airways services both, but there are no direct flights from the U.S. (jat.com). Another option is to fly into Croatia's Dubrovnik airport from London on Thomsonfly (from $150 round trip, thomsonfly.com), and take a taxi across the border to Kotor (about $170; if you prebook, it's $130). Bus service is frequent and inexpensive. The fare from Kotor to Sveti Stefan (30 minutes), for example, is $6. Olimpia Express buses run between Sveti Stefan and Budva every half hour ($1.50 one way).
