You need to purchase "Frontier Insurance". Here is the explanation: http://www.huo.hr/eng/frontier-insurance/47/

With it you will be able to drive in countries from the first table (beginning with Austria).

The issue could be if you intend to drive to Dubrovnik because you should to pass through Bosnia and Herzegovina (a few kilometers). In this case you should to pay additional insurance on the border or avoid this part of land using Tpanj-Ploce car ferry.

In Croatia and in other EU countries we have to pay about 3800 kn insurance for a car yearly + about 1000 kn registration fee, technical exam and eco tax.

If you don't cause a crash through years you can collect 50% or more discount for insurance.

So, frontier insurance is not so far from the usually costs.

I am curious, do you in Canada or USA have a required car insurance and is it so much cheaper? I know that fuel is twice cheaper.

We do have car insurance here. Gas is more expensive here by about 50%.

Renata, just curious why you had your car shipped for only three months rather than renting. Perhaps I am missing something.
