Marion And Thanks For Your Order Fleet Rent a car Zadar Airport
“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 Airport Guide

Car Hire

Zadar Airport is the gateway to Croatia’s Adriatic coast, the Kornati archipelago, the Dalmatian mountains and the historical city of Zadar. It sits just over seven miles southeast of Zadar, with car rental in Zadar Airport the quickest way to access the city. Self-drive is also the best way to explore the rest of the Dalmatian region. Shuttle buses take longer to reach the city centre, while taxis are available at the airport’s taxi rank.

Who to Book With
A number of recognised car hire agents have counters in the rent a car area found just outside of the arrivals hall. Suppliers with presence here include Hertz, Sixt and National as well as a few local outfitters. Vehicles can be collected in a designated area of the airport’s car park. Check rates online before you make your selection for the best deals.

Need to Know Essentials
In order to drive off in your vehicle you will need to present the following:

- A valid UK driver’s licence
- A credit card, preferably the one used to make the booking
- An additional form of identification, such as a passport
- Proof of booking

For more info read our FAQs.

Driving
The historical walled old city is completely pedestriansed, though parking spaces can be found alongside the walls as well as near the ferry terminal. The coastal D8 road passes through the city before travelling south along the coast. This is a toll-free route, as is the D502 that links the airport to the city centre. The nearby A1 motorway is a toll route and payments must be made in Croatian kuna, euros or by credit card. Petrol stations in Zadar also accept credit cards for payment, though visitors should carry some Croatian kuna, as not all cards will be accepted.

See our Guide to Croatia for more tips on driving here.

Transport

Driving is the quickest way to access the city from the airport as well as to reach other destinations in the region. Local buses also provide transportation and run alongside flight arrival times; there is also a taxi rank on site.

Trains
Trains do not serve the airport directly though buses that leave the airport make a stop at Zadar’s main bus station, which is next to the train station. From here, Croatia’s HŽ Passenger Transport Limited Liability Company runs a few slow trains a day to Knin, where passengers can then get connections southeast to Split, north to Zagreb and northwest to Rijeka.

Taxis
Taxis can be found at the rank just outside of the terminal building near the car hire area between 06:00 and 22:00. After this a taxi will have to be called from outside. Taxis run on a meter and charge extra for each piece of luggage.

Taxi prices:
Zadar Airport to Zadar city centre will cost around £13

Buses
Local Liburnija Zadar buses operate a shuttle bus from Zadar Airport into the city centre, making two stops: one at the main bus station and one outside of the walls of the old town (Liburnska Obala). Buses leave from outside of the Arrivals hall and the journey costs just under £3 including luggage.

Facilities
