Everything you need to know before renting a car in Zagreb

Whether you are a tourist in Zagreb and want to explore the city or you need a car for a while for some other reason, the process of renting a car in Zagreb does not have to be complicated or time consuming!

Everything you need to know before renting a car in Zagreb - ORYX Rent a car

To make your process easier and help you choose a car as quickly and easily as possible, we bring you a guide with the most important information. Read it and rent your car in Zagreb without any difficulties!

How to rent a car in Zagreb?

Nowadays, almost anything can be done online, and car rental is no exception. To rent a car in Zagreb, you can simply go to the rental company's website and fill in the most important information.

From choosing the pick-up date and time and returning the vehicle, all the way to choosing the desired vehicle and insurance, everything can be done online. All you need to do after booking is to pick up your vehicle at the branch.

ORYX Rent a car has three offices in Zagreb, so you can choose the one that is closest to you, i.e. the one from which it is easiest to pick up your vehicle.

Do I need to plan ahead? 

Some people like to plan their trip in detail, while others like spontaneous travel and enjoying the moment. But no matter what type of trip or lifestyle you like, if you need a car rental to travel, it is still advisable to plan ahead. 

It is ideal to book a car at least 24 hours in advance to make sure that there are vehicles available, and in summer, or during the tourist season in the city of Zagreb, it is recommended to make a reservation up to several days in advance.

What documents do I need? 

To rent a car in Zagreb, you only need the basic documents that you would otherwise have with you while driving. This includes a valid driver’s license and ID card. It is important to note here that you must be 18 or older, and many car rental companies require at least one year of driving experience. 

What about insurance? 

When booking or renting a car, you should pay attention to the insurance conditions. Check whether the vehicle insurance is already included in the rental price according to the general conditions of vehicle rental or whether it is necessary to buy it separately. 

Top car rental companies in Zagreb, such as ORYX Rent a car, offer their clients several different insurance packages ranging from basic to complete protection of the client and the vehicle from damage and accidents. 

Can I travel from Zagreb to other cities?

Of course! With your Zagreb car hire vehicle, you are not limited to driving within the city, so you can go on your business or tourist trip wherever you want or need, regardless of mileage. 

Besides, you don't even have to return your rented car to Zagreb if it's more convenient for you. Large and professional companies, such as ORYX Rent a car, allow the return of the vehicle in any branch office across the country. When booking your vehicle you can choose the branch office where you will make the return. 

If you change your mind and subsequently decide to return the vehicle to another branch, you can do so with prior agreement and potential additional fee. 

Can more people drive my Zagreb car rental? 

Certainly! If you’re going on a longer trip, an extra driver is a great idea because that way someone else can take the wheel if you feel tired.

In this case, when renting and contracting the service, it is necessary to emphasize that the car will be driven by someone other than you and add another driver to the rental agreement. This will make it easier for you to return the vehicle, because if you are not able to, the additional drivers listed in the contract can also return the car to the branch. 

Ready to go 

With these basic rules, useful tips, and important information, renting a car will surely go smoothly and easily. And for all other questions, booking assistance and additional information, your best Zagreb car rental is always at your disposal!
