2. Taxi from Belgrade Airport
Belgrade taxi service is cheap, but be careful, sometimes taxi drivers heavily overcharge clients. In order to stop this bad practice, the Belgrade Airport has introduced the following mechanism:
On the airport exit there is a Taxi information desk, where you can order taxi with the fixed price. From the airport to the city center the fix price is 1800 dinars (16 Euro). You just have to say the address to the Taxi information desk officer, they will give you a voucher with fixed price and will be going with you right to the first available taxi driver and you are paying that amount when you get to the desired address. Charge per piece of baggage in the boot sometimes is free, sometimes is 100 dinars. Tips is up to you, people often tip 1~2 Euro.
Pros : The taxi stand is easy to find in the airport.
Cons : When getting from Belgrade city to airoport there is no fix rate. Difficult to find a taxi with child seats
Note : To avoid the unpleasant surprises, my advice is before taking a taxi – ask the taxi driver how much the ride will cost including the baggage. And in the airport exit terminal, avoid ghost cabs (where someone approaches you in the airport, not at the taxi stand, and directs you to their unauthorized vehicle without a meter)

3. Bus service - Mini Bus A1
Near airport exit gate there is bus station for “Mini Bus A1”. Mini bus A1 operate between airport and Slavija Square. Bus stop also in New Belgrade (Fontana stop) and near Belgrade main train station. Tickets can be purchased in the bus and the cost is 300 dinars (3 Euro).
Pros : Bus service is very cheap.
Cons : Slow, problem with large luggage or if you traveling with small childrens, limited hours of operation.
Note : Mini Bus A1 service operate 7 days a week from 5 am till 21:30. Bus leaves airport every 60 minutes. On the peak hours (8:00 am – 18 pm) A1 Mini Bus operate more frequently .
There is also another Public City Bus No. 72. I don't recommend anyone to use it, but if you like adventure you can use Bus No. 72, which goes from airport to bus terminal Zeleni venac in Belgrade center. Departs every 35 minutes and it cost 150 dinars (1.5 euro). Usually ride takes around 50 minutes (depends on traffic jams)..
