“We had no complaints about the service…”

“We had no complaints about the service picking the car up. Easy to pick up and the car, although not the expected make, was comparable and it did state ‘or similar’ in the wording when we booked. We did have to wait quite awhile on returning the car though. There did seem to be a hold up. It was raining and no proper office, so squashed up under a narrow canopy.”

Zadar Guide

Car hire Zadar


Located in the middle of 1200 kilometres of picturesque Croatian coast, Zadar is a 3000-year-old town surrounded by beaches, islands and national parks. A popular holiday spot for Croatians, the town population swells to around 130,000 during the summer months.

There are several beaches in Zadar worth mentioning: Punta Bajlo, Kolovare (the main city beach), Vitrenjak, Borik and Diklo. However, to really enjoy the sea, you can rent a boat and head to one of the hundreds of nearby islands.

Only fragments of the Roman forum remain, but the square still serves as the centre of town. Within walking distance are the 9th century church St. Donat and the area’s principal archeological museum.

Most of Zadar’s cafe’s, bars and clubs are to be found on the peninsula, the centre of the city. Aside from a decent selection of international restaurants, the numerous local taverns (‘konobe’) offer the chance to try some of the local specialities. This area also serves as the main shopping district, with a mix of simple street stalls and modern malls.

The Zadar region is surrounded by no less than five National Parks: Paklenica, Kornati, Plitvica Lakes, Krka Waterfalls and Northern Velebit. In only an hour or two by car or by boat it is possible to reach the National Parks from all the tourist resorts in the region. Northern most is Croatia’s most famous national park, Plitvice - a stunning series of turquoise forest lakes, interconnected by beautiful waterfalls.

By car, most people will come either from the capital, Zagreb, or from Italy on the scenic coast road which takes in Trieste and Rijeka. The town is connected by railway line to Zagreb and the rest of Europe via a line to Knin, and buses run to all the major western European cities. There is a ferry link to Ancona (Italy), or you could fly into the small Zadar-Zemunik International Airport.

Frequently asked questions

Is the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place.
