Most major credit cards are accepted at filling stations, although it is advisable to check with your card issuer before travelling.

Clear blue waters, idyllic fishing villages, beaches, vineyards, Roman ruins and walled cities are just some of Croatia’s treasures; all of which make it a traveller’s paradise. This can be enjoyed even more when getting around by car, enabling you to tailor your visit to places of interest allowing you to choose how long you spend in each place.

There are lots of things to see and do all over Croatia and we advise you to leave plenty of time for your journey to avoid travelling at high speeds to get to your destination. Police can collect on the spot fines for motoring offences such as speeding. It is also worth remembering the tolls so that you can ensure that you have enough money at the toll kiosk, tolls are charged on the main route E59 and the E70 out of Zagreb and E71 from Zagreb to Split. Tolls are also charged on selected motorways, bridges and tunnels.

When visiting the built up areas of Zagreb and Split, it might be worth avoiding the rush hour times of 0700 – 0800hrs and 1500 – 1600hrs so that you don’t waste any valuable time in queues of traffic.
