    Valerie, There are seasonal charter flights from Newquay to Dubrovnik and Newmarket Holidays had a package to Dubrovnik back in September 2012. See link below.

    You could contact Newmarket Holidays and ask them if they are running any Dubrovnik charters next year. Alternatively, you could fly to Gatwick and connect to Dubrovnik from there. This gives you more flexibility.

    Kind regards,
