Cheap car hire in Croatia

Wherever you are based in Croatia, you can book your car hire through Expedia in advance. We partner with a network of providers to offer great deals on car hire in the cities, resorts and airports of Croatia.

It’s easy to arrange your car hire in Croatia. Simply enter the dates that you will need the car for and select the most convenient location to pick up your vehicle from. Thanks to our network of providers you will always find a great choice of cars on offer, from mini-class to SUV, and you’ll be able to take advantage of all the latest deals.

If you are flying in to Croatia you can arrange to rent a car from Zagreb Airport, Split Airport or Dubrovnik Airport. This means that, once you have picked up your luggage, your car will be waiting for you as you stroll through the arrivals hall. You’ll be able to start your scenic drive straight away, or head to your hotel to plan your Croatian adventures.

Where to go when you rent a car in Croatia

Dubrovnik never fails to impress. Its white limestone streets and baroque buildings are reflected in the shimmering Adriatic, and its ancient city walls tell of its antiquity. Yet, you’ll find all the best contemporary hotels and fine dining options here too.

Coffee lovers will adore Zagreb. A small coastal city made for strolling, Zagreb offers bohemian cafes, museums and galleries to explore as you get in touch with your arty side.

You can see how the other half live in Hvar Town, the haunt of the fashion-conscious and well-heeled yacht owners. This is a great place to party the night away and stroll in the endless sun through lavender fields by day.

At Plitvice Lakes National Park you can park up and explore its maze of paths, woods and meadows – and each will lead you to one of its 16 scenic lakes or its dramatic waterfalls. Keep your eyes peeled for the bears, wolves and more than 120 species of birds that are sharing this beautiful space with you.

The world is not short of Roman ruins, but Diocletian’s Palace must be one of the most impressive. It forms about half of the old town of Split, and is Unesco-protected for very good reasons. Astonishingly it is made much more than an archaeological site by the fact that people continue to live inside the beautiful structures here.

Zadar may not have the fame of many other coastal towns in Croatia, but that’s just another reason to drive out and experience its lively cafes and fascinating market. The old town is traffic-free, so find somewhere to park and follow its Roman street plan to its numerous bars, restaurants and shops and experience the town in all its marble-clad glory.

Fancy splitting up your road trip with a scenic ferry ride to soak in the rugged shoreline views and admire islands like Hvar and Korčula? With Expedia you can hire a car to get from A to B, then you can leave that car there, and when you arrive at C you can arrange for a brand new car to be there waiting for you. So why not experience the beauty of the Adriatic by travelling between Split and Dubrovnik on a Dalmatian coast cruise?
