Why rent a car in Croatia?

With a diverse landscape, stunning nature, fascinating cities, small distances, and a host of interesting neighbors, Croatia is one of the true up-and-coming travel destinations of Europe.

Croatia Car Rental

One-way Car Rentals in Croatia

Here are the most popular one-way rental options for pickup in Croatia and drop off in another country:

  • From Croatia to Montenegro - 248 offers from 16.69 USD per day
  • From Croatia to Italy - 188 offers from 41.93 USD per day
  • From Croatia to Slovenia - 134 offers from 26.15 USD per day

  • From Croatia to Greece - 32 offers from 141.86 USD per day

Top ways to enter Croatia

  • Split Airport: Located in the south of the country, Split Airport hosts flights to and from most European countries and is the best entry point to reach the beaches and islands of Dalmatia.
  • Zagreb Airport: Croatia’s largest international airport serving the nation’s capital and the country’s north.
  • Dubrovnik Airport: Another Dalmatian airport, located on the very southeastern point of Croatia.
  • By land: It’s possible to rent a car in a nearby country and then drive to Croatia. Some large international airports near Croatia include Budapest Airport in Hungary, Vienna Airport in Austria, and Venice Airport in Italy. It should be noted, however, that different visa requirements may be in place for citizens of different countries, so contact your embassy in advance to find out about any international borders you would like to cross.
  • By ferry: There is a regular ferry service between various port cities in Croatia and Bari and Ancona in Italy. Bringing your rental car on the ferry may or may not be possible depending on the terms of ferry company, so make sure to check first.

Top cities and places to visit

  • Zagreb. Croatia’s marvelous capital is full of modernity, history, and stunning architecture in equal measure.
  • Istria. The peninsula in the northwest of the country is a home of a distinct culture, beaches, and the charming towns of Pula and Opatija.
  • Slavonia. Croatia’s forested northeast offers more traditional way of life. Compared to other parts of the country, Slavonia has a more Central European feel.
  • Split. The largest city of Dalmatia region, Split offers everything from Roman relics to famous seafood and access to Croatia’s many islands.
  • Dubrovnik. Although it is best known for Game of Thrones being filmed there, it is not an overstatement to say that Dubrovnik and nearby towns have some of the best beaches in Europe.

Most popular rental car

The most popular rental in Croatia is the VW Polo, closely followed by the Opel Corsa and the Skoda Fabia.

Driver license requirements

  • Croatia accepts all driver licenses issued in the European Union (EU).
  • If your driver license is issued by a non-EU country, for it to be considered valid you’ll need a Croatian visa. Another requirement is to have been in the EU for no more than six months at the time of the rental. If you’ve been in the EU longer, you’ll need a driver license issued by an EU country.
  • If your driver license is printed in a non-Latin alphabet (Cyrillic, Arabic, etc.), you’ll need an International Driving Permit (IDP) or an official translation of your license into English or Croatian.
  • You must carry your driver license, not its copy, with you at all times.
  • You need to have had your driver license for at least one or two years, depending on the car provider’s requirements.
  • There may be additional requirements depending on the car provider and car category, so make sure to check the terms and conditions before booking.

Crossing Borders

While a member state of the European Union (EU), Croatia is not a member of the Schengen Area. Croatia is bordered by Slovenia, Hungary, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Montenegro. Hungary and Slovenia are part of the Schengen Area. The other three countries are not and each of them have their own visa policy, so you may or may not be able to enter them, depending on your citizenship. If you plan to visit Croatia’s neighbor during your rental period, we advise to get in touch with your Ministry of Foreign Affairs in advance to find out about the visa requirements.

Some car rental providers allow you to cross national borders and even drop off your car in a different country, while others don’t. If you’d like to cross a national border during your rental period, make sure to check the terms and conditions before booking a car. Learn more about cross-border rentals in our FAQ section.

Most popular types of rental car

The type of car rented most often in Croatia is an economy, but mini and compact are also very popular.

Top driving routes

Split–Dubrovnik (229 km / 142 mi) The road between these two beach cities is extremely scenic as it stretches right along the Adriatic Coast in all its length.

Zagreb–Budapest (345 km / 214 mi) Budapest can be reached in under for hours from Zagreb, but if you decide to take a relaxing break on the shores of Balaton, Hungary’s largest lake that will be on your way, we really can’t blame you. Note that you’ll have to cross a national border, so first check with your rental car provider to find out if they allow it.

Rijeka–Venice (232 km / 144 mi) Although Croatia and Italy don’t share a border, you can reach one of the Europe’s most iconic cities in about three hours. Note that you’ll have to cross the national borders of Slovenia and Italy, so first check with your rental car provider to find out if they allow it.

We drove from Zagreb, to Plitvice Lakes, on to Zadar, then Dubrovnik, finally ending the holiday in Split. The car was easy to drive and roads in Croatia generally are nice. We had no issues throughout our stays.

It is a wonderful town. The buildings and alleyways that lead to new things to discover. Our top recommendations to eat would be: Milla restaurant in the old town excellent, friendly and absolutely gorgeous food. Also for the same reason Slaven restaurant again in the old town.

Stayed in an apartment outside Dubrovnik. Used Uber to go into city, but was able to see much of Croatia, parts of Bosnia Herzegovina and Montemengro with ease in comfort of own car. Only down side of travelling by road was delays at borders, but delays for coaches were two or three times as long. Cost of transfer to apartment from airport will have covered much of hire cost
