I am starting in Dubrovnik and am making my way up to split to catch a ferry to Hvar. I'm in Hvar for a couple days. After that I am making my way from Split to Trogir for a night - and then to the airport the next day. What's the best way to travel? Should I rent a car? Any recommendations for car rentals in Dubrovnik and Split.
Hello I travelled with a couple of friends around Croatia in 2013. We hired a car as it was quite reasonable. Some of the small villages are quite hard to get to otherwise. We picked up a car at Zadar, or starting point. Can highly recommend a trip to the waterfalls in Plitvici. http://reasonstogonorth.com/impressions-of-croatia/ about 5 years ago
From Trogir, you've got a local bus to the airport for something like 14kn.
And it's probably better to stay in trogir than get from split. Renting a car is anywhere from 400kn a day (for your economy size) to 550kn for a better model. Less if you hire for longer # of days, but you won't need it on hvar and you pay about €50 for the different location drop off fee. Hiring a car is WAY more convenient i agree, in peak seaon particularly. Still, you could dine like royalty for the drop off fee you pay. As for recommendations all the major names service croatia, along with small local businesses. You will likely have a number plate "DA" as registration in DAruvar is cheapest, hence everyone registers there. about 5 years ago
