KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Makarska

  • Choosing car hire in Makarska will allow you to not only explore Makarska itself, but also the surrounding towns. For example, many people visiting Makarska take the car ferry from Makarska to the island of Brac, often arriving at Sumartin (just let your provider know). Brac's bus routes may not go to all the attractions on your itinerary, so having your own vehicle is one of the best ways to explore the island. A car will offer you more freedom than Croatia's buses, and being able to stop and take in the Croatian countryside will be more than worth it.
  • The closest arrival airport for Makarska generally is Split Airport (SPU). Once you arrive, you'll find car hire desks in the main lobby and just outside the terminal. There are international and local companies available. From Split Airport, you can drive to Makarska in around 1 h 30 min. If you prefer to pick up your hire car in Makarska, you'll need to take a bus into Split and then transfer to another bus to Makarska, which takes around 2 h 20 min.
  • There are a few important things you should be aware of when using car hire in Makarshka. You should also make sure that the company you've chosen for car hire in Makarska has included the required equipment to be used during breakdowns. This includes reflective vests, a warning triangle and a first aid kit. While most car hire companies allow you to take your vehicle across the border, you'll need to let them know where you're going in case you need additional paperwork. Bosnia has a Green Card agreement in place with Croatia. This means that as your vehicle is insured in Croatia, it will also be insured in Bosnia. Other countries have a similar agreement, but for some, you may need to rent a physical Green Card from your agency to prove it. Always double-check beforehand, as these requirements do change.
  • If you're visiting Makarska during winter, you will be legally required to use winter tyres. In addition, you'll need to have your Daytime Running Lights or low-beam headlights on at all times during the winter months. In summer, you'll have to contend with the crowds. If you plan on taking the coastal route on day trips or road trips, you may find yourself in heavy traffic, but there are often alternatives.
  • Book your car hire in Makarska at least 3 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini car hire in Makarska are around 2% cheaper than other car types, on average

Car was comfortable but was given to us dirty and a number of scratch marks and dents. The pick up process took TWO HOURS which meant we had to sacrifice a couple of things we had planned for the day. Poor organisation within the firm was the cause of this. No apology given or discount to compensate.

Car hire insurance in Makarska

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Makarska car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Makarska.

Deductible
