Top tips for renting a car in Krk Island

  • Rijeka Airport (RJK) is a major transportation hub for most tourists flying to Krk Island, Croatia, due to its ideal location close to the Croatian coast. At the airport, you will find several car rental providers, thus facilitating your tour rides on the island. Upon landing at RJK, you can access the car rental counters situated in the arrivals hall of the airport across from the information center in the airport terminal, eliminating the need for a shuttle ride to the rental counters.
  • On Krk Island, driving can be challenging. As one of the most prominent tourist destinations in Croatia, the island experiences a substantial increase in traffic during high season, making it more difficult for drivers to navigate the roadways. As tourists and residents commute to work, school, or popular attractions, rush hour usually happens in the early morning between 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. and in the late afternoon between 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. Major roads that are severely impacted during rush hour include the D102, which connects the bridge to the mainland, and the coastal road (D104), which traverses the island's picturesque coastline. Plan your trips ahead of peak hours to escape traffic congestion.
  • A compact SUV is recommended for traversing Krk Island due to the island's terrain and weather conditions. The varied landscape of Krk Island includes spiraling coastal roadways, mountainous topography, and potentially unsteady rural pathways. A compact SUV combines the adaptability of an SUV with the agility and maneuverability of a smaller vehicle, making it ideal for traversing the island's varied terrains. The slightly greater ground clearance of a compact SUV allows for improved clearance over irregular surfaces, craters, and stony roads that may be encountered in remote areas.
  • On Krk Island, Croatia, children under the age of 12 are prohibited from riding in the front seats of vehicles unless they are under the age of two and secured in size-appropriate restraint systems with the airbags deactivated (if using rear-facing seats). A child between the ages of one and five must be secured in rear-facing child safety seats. A child between the ages of five and 12 must ride in the rear seat with a three-point seat belt and a booster seat, if required due to their height.
  • Book your rental car in Krk Island at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Krk Island are around 35% cheaper than other car types, on average
