Croatia is a fascinating country that is finally getting more attention as a vacation destination. There are many historical sites to visit, as well as beautiful natural areas where you can hike and enjoy the scenery. If you want to learn more about the history, you may want to spend some time in Dubrovnik, where you can visit the ancient city walls, as well as the Old Town area. The city is also home to the Island of Lokrum, not to mention a cable car that can provide you with some fantastic views of the city. In the city of Split, you can visit Diocletian’s Palace. Those who want to go hiking should heat to Plitvice Lakes National Park.

Use a rental car

Because there are so many fascinating things to see and do, you might wonder how you can see as much as possible during your vacation. One of the best ways to do it is by renting a car when you arrive in the country. When you rent a vehicle in Croatia, you need to make sure you have insurance that will cover you while there. Drivers from the United States will need to have their driver’s license, as well as an international driving permit with them. You also need to carry your passport with you at all times.

Make sure you have the required insurance through the rental company. Also, make sure they provide you with their phone numbers in case you need to get in touch with them.

Road conditions and safety

In Croatia, the traffic flows on the right side of the road, and you need to be at least 18 years old to drive in the country. You need to have on dipped headlights even during the daylight hours. They have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to drinking and driving. It is important to note that you are not allowed to turn right on red lights, which is different from the United States.

Seatbelts are required for the driver and all of the passengers in the vehicle. Public transportation and school busses will always have the right of way. In addition, vehicles that are entering a roundabout will have the right of way.

The drivers in Croatia can be aggressive, and they may not always follow the rules of the road. Since this is the case, you need to be wary of what the other drivers are doing so you can react.

Highway payment

In Croatia, you need to pay to use the highways. The amount of the payment varies based on the type of vehicle. When you enter the highway, you receive a coupon, and then when you get off, you turn the coupon into an operator, at which time you will make your payment. You can pay using cash, credit cards, and electronic payments.

Speed limits

Always follow the speed limits posted on the roads. The speed limits in Croatia are as follows.

  • Highways – 130 km/h (the minimum is 60 km/h)
  • Motor roads – 110 km/h
  • Rural areas – 90 km/h
  • Built up areas – 50 km/h

Croatia is a lovely country that is easier to see when you have a rental vehicle.

Mini Cooper Clubman - Brake Pads Replacement (Rear) - Silverado, California
He arrived early, went straight to work, and it should have been quoted higher as it’s a Mini which takes longer than the average break job. He didn’t try to get more than the quoted amount. He even set out to replace a running light for me when he was finished. I thought there would hard sales telling me I needed more work but there wasn’t. Because he didn’t try to sell me more work, I will use him again. When I hired a mechanic I don’t want a salesman. 
