    Country Essentials

    Croatians drive on the right-hand side of the road. Croatia is a narrow country bordered by 5 other European nations, so be aware when driving near the borders that road rules can change.

    Standard Inclusions

    All of our rental bookings include Value Added Tax (VAT), Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and third-party liability insurance. This reduces the excess to a capped amount, depending on the supplier and class of vehicles. Super CDW can be purchased directly with the supplier to reduce the excess amount to as low as $0. Excess Refund Insurance can be purchased from Auto Europe when you make your booking. This insurance refunds your excess costs up to $5000 should any damage occur to the vehicles during your rental. Personal Effects Protection ensures select items if stolen from the rental car and is available with select suppliers. Personal Accident Insurance is also available locally with select suppliers. Optional insurance coverage is available with select suppliers only, rates subject to change without notice.Cheap Rental Car

    Driving in Croatia

    City hop between Zagreb, the capital city in the north, and the coastal cities along the Adriatic Sea towards the border with Montenegro, Split and Dubrovnik. Zagreb has a similar feel to other central-European cities, being full of Medieval history and lined with cobbled streets. The city is very well connected by highways, making it easy to get out and about from the city if you arrive by plane.

    Croatia has many well-tended natural attractions, including an extended coastal border and over 1,000 islands, 48 of which are inhabited. Inland, Plitvice Lakes National Park is Croatia's largest and arguably most spectacular. Located in central Croatia, the cascading lakes of bright colours make for an incredible landscape. You can take a break from driving and hop on a sailing trip around the Croatian islands.

    Licence Requirements

    It is a requirement that visiting motorists carry their valid Australian State or Territory driving licence in addition to a valid International Driving Permit which must be obtained before leaving Australia. The minimum age to rent a car in Croatia is 19 years, though some suppliers may charge a fee for young drivers (25 and under). Some suppliers may have a maximum age limit of 75 years.

    Tolls and Freeways

    A toll is charged on most Croatian motorways. Payment is accepted in kuna, all major credit cards. Conveniently, euros are also accepted.

    Border Crossings

    If you plan on venturing internationally out of Croatia, there are a few things to keep in mind. All of the countries on your itinerary will need to be noted at the time of booking and confirmed with the supplier that this is allowed. Always reconfirm at the time of pick up the countries you intend to travel to. In general, travel across borders is permitted. Please note that there are local fees to pay when crossing borders and depending on your itinerary, insurance costs may increase in line with supplier regulations.

    Each provider has slightly different rules regarding travel into certain countries and it is advisable to make sure that your planned driving route is in accordance with any international restrictions in place.
