Transport

[transport]

Croatia's largest airport is Zagreb International Airport, situated 17kms southeast of the capital. Bus and train connections are also available from major European destinations. The country isn't particularly large, so car rental in Croatia is a fantastic option for discovering the main cities such as Zagreb, Zadar and Rijeka.

Car Hire Croatia

Most cars in Croatia have manual transmissions, so tourists will need to be able to drive a stick shift if they are to rent a vehicle here. There are an abundance of rental companies situated in the major cities of Croatia, with international suppliers like Nova, Budget, Enterprise and Hertz providing plenty of options for visitors.

Driving

Speed limits on highways are usually quite low in Croatia, as dual carriageways are rare. In addition, these highways can be somewhat slippery when wet, as years of use have worn down some sections of road. Despite this, roads are still well-maintained in Croatia, so driving from city to city is an excellent way to travel.

Things To See and Do

The beauty of car rental in Croatia is that tourists can get anywhere at their own pace. Start in the city of Zagreb, as most highways in the country converge here. Travel west to Samobor's medieval cityscape or see traditional Croatian lifestyles in Vrbovec. Head north to Osijek or Vukovar, which reveal the nation's war torn past. Also, Roman ruins are found near the beachfront towns of Pula and Split.

Best Time To Visit

Summer is the best time to visit Croatia, as temperatures between the months of May and August hover around the high 20s (C). This makes it possible for tourists to enjoy sightseeing in coastal cities along the Adriatic Sea and their beaches. It is not surprising that this is the tourist high season.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is 121CarHire.com the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours). Which car rental companies are compared by 121CarHire.com? at this location
