Sieka Grijpma ORYX Rent A Car Split Airport
“As always extremely well organized.”

“As for previous vacations we used your services again. As before, everything was perfectly organized. At Split Airport it took us less than fifteen minutes to leave in our brand new VW (3600 kilometers on the clock). When we came back to drop off the car, we were again taken care off by friendly staff. Excellent service.”

Jan Cornelis Wiesenekker Enterprise Split Airport
“Correct and never anything wrong.”

“Rented a car several times. Always spot on. Last time I had apparently given the wrong airport of arrival, Split instead of Zadar. They immediately looked for a solution and found one.”

Car hire Split


Split is Croatia's second city and one of the oldest cities in the region. The city originated when, around the year 300, the Roman emperor Diocletianus built a palace there. This huge building still forms the center of the historical city. The old center was added to UNESCO's World Heritage list in 1979.


In 2007 Split had more than 221,000 inhabitants, but this number is rapidly increasing, in the entire urban area of Split and the surrounding towns there are approximately half a million people.


The city lies in the southern region Dalmatia next to the Adriatic Sea, opposite the city is the island Brač. This island is, like many other islands in front of the coast, only reachable via the port of Split.


When Croatia still formed part of Yugoslavia, Split was an important industrial center. The city suffered a lot during the transition to the free market economy, but is recovering the last years. Some of the old industries are modernized, among others the chemical, paper and shipbuilding industry. Furthermore the economy relies on fishing, agriculture (olives and wine) and tourism.


The international airport of Split lies 25 kilometers west of the city, after Zagreb Airport it is the most important airport of Croatia. More than 1.2 million passengers use it yearly, most of them during summer.

Public transport

In Split there are only city buses, the hilly area of the city is unsuitable for streetcars. The bus company Promet Split maintains the 18 bus lines with modern equipment. On Fridays and Saturdays there is a night bus service. Buying a ticket at a kiosk is slightly more economic than buying it on the bus.

Furthermore there are bus lines to destinations outside of Split, they leave from the central bus station, at the ferry port.

There is also a city railway which connects Split with Kaštel Stari.

Traffic and parking

During the summer the center of Split can be very busy, then it is also quite difficult to find a parking space. You have to pay everywhere in the center to park in the streets. The parking police are very strict, if you exceed the allowed parking time it is rather likely that they will tow your car away.

At the ferry port there is a large parking area.


There is a large offer of hotels in Split, from basic budget accommodations to luxurious five-star hotels. The hotels on the Riva Boulevard are popular, but of course these are the most expensive ones. During summer Split is a popular travel destination and you must reserve a room long in advance. At the ferry port and the bus station many 'intermediaries' offer accommodations, although this could be a good way to get a last minute room, one must be careful before committing to an offer.

Frequently asked questions

Is EasyTerra Car Hire the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation?
