Tips for Renting a Car in Croatia

  • A valid driver's license, proof of international identity, a credit card in the name of the principal driver, and, in some cases (as decided by the supplier), an International Driving Permit (IDP) are required from the renter.

  • EU licenses are valid for driving in Croatia. Non-EU licenses require a Croatian visa and must be used within six months of EU entry, or an EU-issued license is needed.

  • Licenses in non-Latin alphabets need an IDP or translation. Always carry your original license and meet experience requirements per car provider terms.

Renting a car at the airport may result in additional expenses. Check your rental agreement for any additional charges.

  • All passengers must utilize seat belts. Children under 12 are not allowed to ride in the front seat of a car in Croatia; instead, they must be secured into a car seat or booster seat. When traveling with children under five, they must be secured into a child safety seat in the back seat. If you cannot bring your own car seat with you to Croatia, you can rent one from the rental company for an additional $10.

  • People renting cars in Croatia often go to Bosnia, Herzegovina, or Montenegro. Cross-border travel is possible for a daily fee that depends on the type of car. You can't take a boat to Italy and drive your rental car there.

  • Get the most out of your time in Croatia by carefully plotting out your itinerary. Start by getting a rental car in Zagreb, then head to Zadar and Split, then drive to Pula and end in Dubrovnik. Ensure your rental includes GPS and check parking options in each city.

  • Montenegro, Serbia, Bosnia, and Herzegovina are additional non-Schengen member states with Croatia sharing borders. The necessity of a distinct visa to enter any of these countries may vary according to your nationality.

  • To ensure availability, make your rental car reservation in advance. You can modify the pickup and drop-off locations while making an online reservation.

School zones have a more stringent 15 mph speed limit to safeguard children. In rural areas, you can drive up to 45 mph, which means you can go faster in less crowded areas. The 65 mph speed restriction on highways allows quicker travel between essential locations. Since speed restrictions are carefully enforced to preserve road safety, you should always heed posted signs.
  • Do I need insurance to rent a car in Croatia?
    Insurance is necessary to rent a vehicle in Croatia. Liability insurance is required and covers any damages you may do to other vehicles in an accident. In addition, you can purchase Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) insurance, which covers theft and damage to the rental automobile. These insurance solutions protect you and help you avoid large out-of-pocket payments in the event of an occurrence.
  • What is the minimum age for renting a car in Croatia?
    In Croatia, the standard minimum age to rent an automobile is 25. Nonetheless, some rental firms allow drivers to rent a car as early as 21; however, additional costs are typically involved. These charges are designed to offset the increased risk posed by inexperienced drivers. It is imperative to inquire about age restrictions and potential additional fees directly from the rental business.
  • Can I use my U.S. driver's license to rent a car in Croatia?
    You can use your U.S. driver's license to rent a car in Croatia. Since Croatia is a U.S. territory, the same driving regulations apply to the mainland United States. For example, if you're a resident of California, your California driver's license will be valid for renting and driving a car in Croatia. This makes it convenient for U.S. travelers, as there's no need for an international driver's permit or any additional documentation beyond what you would use at home.
  • What Is the Policy on Additional Drivers for Rental Cars in Croatia?
    When renting a car in Croatia, you can add additional drivers, but there are specific policies to follow. Most rental companies allow you to add extra drivers, but each additional driver must meet the same rental requirements, including age and a valid driver’s license. Typically, there is an extra fee for each additional driver, which varies by company. For example, if you and a friend want to drive the rental car, your friend must be listed on the rental agreement and may have to pay an additional daily fee.
  • How much in advance should I book my car rental in Croatia?
    It is suggested that you reserve your car hire in Croatia as soon as possible to assure availability, especially during high travel periods. When reserving online, Finalrentals allows you to secure your rental with a 15% down payment.
