The driving style in Croatia is like most of Europe: you must drive on the right-hand side. Because it is a small country, you can discover Croatia in a short amount of time on its well-maintained roads. If you plan to drive in and around major cities, beware of traffic and congestion. In the countryside, be wary of animals and farm machinery in the roads. Reflective jackets, first-aid kits, and warning triangles must always be carried in your car. If you are visiting between November and April, you must also carry snow chains and a shovel in the car.
To rent a car in Croatia, you must be at least 21 years old and must have held a valid driver’s license for two years. Any driver who is under the age of 25 and wishes to rent a car might incur an additional young driver surcharge of around 184 kn ($28).
The average price of petrol in Croatia is 9.97 kn ($1.51) per liter and 36.20 kn ($5.49) per gallon. The price of petrol is the same at all petrol stations, since they are government owned. Petrol stations found in the major Croatian cities as well as those on important roads are open 24h.
The national speed limit for highways is 130 km/h (80 mph), while on rural roads the limit is 90 km/h (56 mph). On expressways, or brza cesta, the speed limit is 110 km/h (68 mph). In residential areas, you must keep below the 50 km/h (31 mph) speed limit. You will find both static and mobile speed cameras on the roads, so beware, as Croatian police can impose on-the-spot fines.
