Car rental in Zagreb is recommended for those who intend to explore remote areas or villages in the city; otherwise the public transport would already be enough to take you around the major attractions and landmarks in the capital of Croatia.
Car rental companies in Zagreb are plenty and most of them have offices in the city’s major airport, the Pleso International Airport. Among these companies are Budget (800/472-3325), Hertz (800/654-3131), and Uni Rent (021/317-297) which is a local independent car rental company.
Many of these companies offer a wide range of auto choices, from economy models like Opel Corsa to luxury rides such as Volvo S80. Note that most of the cars for rent in Zagreb have manual transmissions. For those who prefer to use automatic, reservation is needed and expect to pay more for it.
To be able to rent a car in Zagreb, you must be at least 21 years old with a proof of insurance and a valid driver’s license. It is also important to know that car rental in Zagreb is quite pricey, thus, those who are traveling on a budget are not recommended to do so.
If you get into a car trouble on the road, tourists can easily call the rental agency for help or even the Croatian Automobile Club at 987.
