Car hire Zadar


The historical city of Zadar has often been the plaything of other countries and realms. Besides being Croatian, the city has been (for shorter or longer periods of time) Byzantine, Hungarian, Venetian, French, Austrian, Italian or Yugoslavian, before it became Croatian again in 1991. The old town on a peninsula near the harbor is full of historic buildings, including remains of the Romans, the cathedral Sveta Stosija and the circular 9th century St. Donatus Church in Romanesque style. It is a cozy town with many cafes, colorful markets and a bustling port. The islands of the archipelago off the coast are a paradise for water sports enthusiasts; you can sail and scuba dive (there are some ship wrecks).


The city has a population of 85,000.


Zadar is centrally located in Croatia, in the northwest of Dalmatia. The city is protected from the Adriatic Sea by the elongated islands of the Croatian Archipelago. About five kilometers off the coast of Zadar is the island Ugljan.


Tourism is a major source of income for Zadar. In addition, the trade through the port is important. Also, fishery and fish processing are major sectors of the local economy. Furthermore there are machine industry and some chemical industry.


Zadar airport is located in Zemunik Donji, nine kilometers southeast of Zadar. The airport is easily accessible by rental car. From the city take the Jadranska cesta, and after that you can choose between the highway and road 502 in order to get to the airport. The route is clearly signposted.

Public Transport

Zadar has good public bus transport, operated by the Liburnija company. It is slightly cheaper to buy a ticket from a newsagent instead of on the bus. Moreover, a ticket that you buy on the bus is only valid for that trip; a ticket purchased in advance allows you to make two trips.

Traffic and Parking

Most of the old center - within the city walls - is a pedestrian zone. The road around the city wall is one-way. There are several parking garages, but finding a parking space in the streets near the old town is virtually impossible. There is a larger car park on the opposite side from the harbor (Obala kneza Branimira), near the pedestrian bridge.

For tours around the area, a rental car is perfect. For example to the beautiful National Park Plitvice: an area of sixteen lakes with waterfalls in a densely wooded area.


Most of the hotels are concentrated in two areas: Puntamika and Borik, both are located at about five kilometers northwest of the historic center. Furthermore, there are many campgrounds in the area. Zadar is a popular destination in summer and therefore it is recommended to book your accommodation well in advance.

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? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
