Car hire in Split
On this page you’ll find tips and advice on hiring a car in Split, and the cheapest rental cars at guaranteed lowest price. If this if your first time renting a car in Croatia, please read our general tips on car hire in the country via the link below.
Car hire at Split Airport
Split Airport (airport code: SPU), also referred to as Resnik Airport, is located about 15 miles from the city centre. The airport services a lot of international flights, and it is heavily frequented during the summer months. Getting to and from the airport by car is, however, very easy and convenient.
There are a large number of car rental firms at the airport. All of their offices are directly next to the international arrivals hall on the ground floor. You simply can’t miss them!
When all the papers are ready at the car rental office, someone will take you to the rental car. The car park for rental cars is located about 100 m from the arrivals hall.
Remember the car park, as you will have to drop off the car there as well. Oddly enough, you’ll have to go through another car park (for which you’ll need a pay and display-ticket) to get to the right car park. There is, however, only one way you can go, so getting to the right car park won’t be a problem. If you need to fill the tank up before returning the car, there are several petrol stations on the road from Split to the airport.
Car hire is also available in central Split as many car rental firms have offices and pick-up points in the city.
Where to go around Split
One of the smaller gems in the area around Split is the village of Imotski, which is about 55 miles from Split. Imotski is located on a mountain and the landscape that surrounds the village is amazing. Just next to the village there is also an incredibly beautiful lake which is known for its blue and red colour. Moreover, Imotski has many cosy little streets perfect for walking around. You’ll really be able to see and feel the traditional village life.
Krka National Park
Just over an hour’s drive from Split is the beautiful Krka National Park. Because the Park surrounds a river, you can expect some spectacular waterfalls. There are also many beautiful hiking trails in Krka, as well as a few souvenir shops. You can also get guided tours! Furthermore, the island os Visovac is located inside the Park. On Visovac, you’ll find a monastery which dates back to the 1400’s. The island can be visited by going on a guided boat tour.
Biograd na Moru
Less than 90 north of the Split is the city of Biograd na Moru. This city was the capital of Croatia during the Middle ages, and many old buildings from that time are well preserved. Biograd na Moru has a long tradition as a tourist resort, and has many beautiful beaches and beach promenades.
