Croatia car hire information

Does Croatia have any unique traffic laws?

In Croatia it is illegal to use electronic devices while driving, so if you plan to rent a car, we recommend that you keep your mobile phone stowed away to avoid a fine. In Croatia, there is a law that you must drive with your headlights on in the wintertime, which begins in late October and ends in April. This is a preventive law to reduce the number of accidents caused by dangerous weather conditions in winter, along with the requirement that all cars be equipped with snow chains and a shovel. You are also required to carry a fluorescent vest in your rental car at all times, which must be easy to access and is not allowed to be stored in the boot, along with a warning triangle and a first aid kit, which you must keep in your vehicle. These items are usually provided by the car rental company.

What are the legal and documentation requirements for renting a car in Croatia?

If you are interested in using rental cars in Croatia, then you will need to present a valid driver’s license from your home country to the car hire company, or an International Drivers Permit, if your original document is written in a language that does not use the Latin alphabet. While the legal age to drive in Croatia is 18 years old, many car hire companies will apply a surcharge on rental cars hired by drivers under the age of 22, and over the age of 70. You will need a credit card to rent the car, which will be used to pay for the deposit. Debit cards are generally not accepted, but it will depend on the car hire company and their policy.

Which areas of Croatia have the most traffic?

As Croatia is a member of the Schengen area of Europe, it can sometimes have quite a lot of traffic at the borders. One particular area that attracts a lot of traffic is the border with Slovenia at Bregana. We recommend travelling later at night or investigating different roads that cross the borders if you plan on coming into Croatia or leaving with a rental car. The cities of Zagreb, Rijeka, and Split are busy all day with traffic but have their rush hour in the early morning and during the afternoon. If you are planning on staying in these cities, and travelling within them, then we recommend parking your car at your accommodation and using the public transport systems, such as buses, trams, and trains, as they are affordable and reliable. Parking can be a bit difficult and more expensive as you get closer to the city centre, especially in Zagreb.

What are the best scenic roads in Croatia?

The most famous scenic road in Croatia is the Adriatic Highway, also known as the Jadranska Magistrala (D8). It runs down the Dalmatian Coast, starting in Rijeka in the north, and finishing at the Montenegro border in the south of the country. We recommend travelling this route with your rental car because it passes at least five national parks and four UNESCO World Heritage Sites, as well as numerous Roman ruins and monuments. Some of the places that we recommend you stop to visit are the city of Dubrovnik, which is a World Heritage site, the Historical Complex of Split, which was built by the Roman Emperor Diocletian as his retirement home, and the Cathedral of St Jakov (St James) in Šibenik, a small town on the coast. The Cathedral of St Jakov is one of the most important architectural monuments of the renaissance in Croatia and is well worth a visit.
