Always bring your passport and your insurance papers for the car.
The passport is important because Bosnia-Herzegovina is just eight kilometers down the road, and you will have to pass the border on your way to Dubrovnik. Herzegovina borders are everywhere when you drive around. You can look at a map and think that you might avoid crossing the border. Do not rely on it. You might have to backtrack if you did not bring the passport. Avoid the small local border crossings. They are only open to local people who live close to that border. At the end of Juli 2022, we expect that the bridge from Komarna to Peljesac peninsular will open, and then you can bypass Neum and Bosnia-Herzegovina when going to Dubrovnik.
The taxi services has closed down during the Corona. If you need transport you should ask the locals what the possibilities are now.
The busses may not stop if you do not flag them down. Wave your hand. Just standing at the bus stop might not be enough.
