Car Hire FAQs

What are the requirements to hire a car in Croatia?

Before picking up your car hire in Croatia, you'll need to be aware of a few things and have a couple of documents ready before arriving. To hire a car in Croatia, you must be at least 18 years old and have held your driving licence for at least one year. Keep in mind that drivers younger than 25 will typically have to pay a young driver surcharge on top of the hiring costs and may be limited to smaller models. If your home-country driving licence isn't written in Latin characters, you'll be required to have an international driving permit along with your driving licence from home. You will also need to produce the same credit card used to make the online booking, and the owner of the card must be present; you cannot hire a car in Croatia with someone else's credit card. Please also bring your passport as proof of identity and any confirmation emails received after booking online.

What are the rules for driving in Croatia?

If you’re planning on picking up a cheap car hire in Croatia to explore the country, get acquainted with some of the road rules before heading out. To start with, you'll drive on the right-hand side of the road and pass on the left. You cannot make a right turn at a traffic light if it is red, regardless of whether there is oncoming traffic or not. If you end up at an unmarked intersection, the priority of way must be given to the vehicle to the right of you. There are strict drinking-and-driving laws in Croatia, with a legal blood alcohol level of 0.05%, which basically means you can't drink at all. Getting caught could result in hefty fines and possibly jail time. You may not, at any time, use your mobile phone while driving, unless it's connected to a hands-free device. You'll want to keep up to date with local motor vehicle departments to be aware of any recent changes made to the driving laws in your area while operating a hire car in Croatia.

What type of car is recommended for driving in Croatia?

Deciding on the best cheap car hire for you while driving in Croatia will depend mostly on your own needs. Keep in mind that Croatia has a lot of small villages with narrow roads, so you'll usually be better off with a smaller vehicle rather than a large SUV or 4x4. Smaller, lighter cars usually have better fuel efficiency than larger cars, which will help your pocket in the long run, especially if you plan on spending a lot of time in your hired car. Make sure your hire car in Croatia is equipped with cruise control and air-conditioning; cruise control will help you on long drives, and the air conditioning is a must for those hot summer days or cold winter afternoons.
