Zagreb Pleso Airport Guide

Car Hire

This busy Croatian airport is the gateway into the country as well as to Medvednica Mountain, riverbank beaches and historical cities, plus the vibrant capital city. It is located in Pleso, just over six miles from the Zagreb city centre, with car hire in Zagreb Airport the best way to make this 25-minute drive. Shuttle buses also connect the airport with the city and there is a taxi rank outside of the terminal building.

Who to Book With
Budget, Europcar, Hertz, Sixt and Thrifty all offer car rental at the airport, with counters in the public area of the passenger terminal. For convenience, vehicles are collected right on site, though reservations are highly recommended as this is a popular way to tour around the country.

The following documents will need to be shown in order to collect your vehicle:

- Both parts of a valid UK driver’s licence
- The credit card that was used to make the reservation

It is not recommended to drive in the city itself as parking is not easy to come by and heavy traffic very common. Still, it is the best way to explore outside of the city centre to visit picturesque towns and villages. A number of motorways serve the city; all are toll routes. Tolls can be paid in Croatian kuna or by credit card, though most car hire agents will provide drivers with electronic toll collection devices. Petrol can also be paid for in Croatian kuna or by credit card, though not all stations will accept UK-issued cards.

For more information on driving here see our Guide to Croatia.

What most people want to know

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.

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?
