Zagreb Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Get your rental car right at Zagreb Airport! Go on to explore Zagreb, a city with stunning cathedrals and churches, fascinating museums, and history around every corner. The older areas of Gornji Grad and Donji Grad are full of landmarks and impressive architecture, and both are easy destinations by rental car.

History and fun go hand in hand here! Head to Strossmayer šetalište, the city’s artistic hub—full of painters, street musicians, and other performance artists. If it’s Sunday, drive your rental to Hrelič flea market at the outskirts of the city for a truly one-of-a-kind experience. On your way back, stop at a Croatian restaurant to sample some delicious ćevapčići and local wines.

Zagreb is fascinating, but Croatia has a lot more to offer. The coastal towns of Split, Dubrovnik, and Pula, each with its own unique flavor, are all a couple of hours away. If you’re up for a real road trip, the wild nature of Montenegro, beauty of Venice, and grandeur of Budapest are all reachable within a day. You can even pick up your rental car at Zagreb Airport and drop it off in a different city. Start your adventure now!

Popular one-way rentals

  • Dubrovnik (609 km / 378 mi). Located on the Adriatic Coast near the borders with Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro, Dubrovnik is one of the most picturesque cities in Croatia. Internationally well-known as one of the filming locations of the Game of Thrones, the city attracts visitors with its beautiful old town, impressive city walls, and well-preserved churches.
  • Split (418 km / 259 mi). Croatia’s second city and the capital of the historic Dalmatia region, Split is famous for its long, beautiful beaches and fun nightlife. But there’s even more about this city, from history that’s dating back for millenia to its proximity to Croatia’s most beautiful islands.
  • Podgorica (723 km / 449 mi). The capital city of Montenegro is one of the sunniest cities in Europe. Although it is not that famous as a travel destination, the city has its fair share of delights like the Old Turkish baths and beautiful Serbian Orthodox churches. Podgorica’s number one attraction, however, is its proximity to Montenegro’s stunning beaches and nature areas. It’s important to keep in mind that if you plan to travel from Zagreb to Podgorica, Sarajevo, Budapest, or Belgrade, you’ll be crossing an international border, so ask your rental car provider in advance if they permit it. Also, make sure you don’t need a visa to enter (Croatia and Hungary are both part of the EU and Schengen Area, but every other country in the region has its own unique visa policy).
  • Sarajevo (396 km / 246 mi). The capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Sarajevo’s reputation suffered during the wars of the 1990s that followed the break-up uf Yugoslavia. Although the city still bears some scars of this gruesome experience, it is nowadays a perfectly safe place to visit, and has recently reinvented itself as a place of culture. After seeing Sarajevo, drive to see the rest of Bosnia and Herzegovina, its impressive natural parks, and well-preserved wooden mosques.
  • Budapest (339 km / 210 mi). Although Hungary is not usually associated with the Balkan region, its capital, Budapest, is just a few hours’ drive north of Zagreb. Considered by many to be one of Europe’s most beautiful cities, it is home to many impressive castles, the Margaret Island in the middle of the Danube, and cozy restaurants serving traditionally spicy Hungarian food.
  • Belgrade (387 km / 240 mi). Still undiscovered by tourist masses, Serbia remains a fascinating off-the-beaten-path destination in the heart of Southeast Europe. Its impressive capital, Belgrade, attracts visitors with the impressive Belgrade Fortress, Temple of Saint Sava, and many museums and galleries.

FAQ

Generally, car rental companies allow rentals without any additional costs for those up to the age of 65. Some car rental companies also allow people above 65 years of age to rent can without any additional fee. Senior citizens can either check the rental conditions of the car rental offer to find out or enter their age when searching, in which case any additional fee will be shown in the total price.

Most car rentals allow renting a car for a maximum period of 28 days, but some might allow for a longer period than that.

In most cases, this is due to the legal requirements of the country or state.
