Car Rental in Rovinj

I need to rent a car from Rovinj to Zagreb. Are there any car rental companies in Rovinj, or do I need to go to Pula? I will be driving around Croatia and Slovenia, so the rental will be for 12 days. I know there will be extra surcharges for a one-way rental.

I could only find one company online, economycarrentals.com, but they haven't received good reviews.

Thanks for any feedback.

There should be no problem picking up a rental car in Rovinj. You should also be able to find a company which does not charge a one-way surcharge providing your drop-off is inside Croatia. You may need to buy a vignette to drive in Slovenia.

You may need to pick up the car in Porec....or Pula in the other direction. AND if you return it to Zagreb,it's a return in the same country....should not be a fee for return.

We are going to be renting a car for 2 weeks in Slovenia. Pick up in Ljubljana....return in Portoroz/Piran. Then we will take the bus to Istria....and pick up a car, hopefully in Porec....returning it to Dubrovnik, 3 weeks later.

Let's keep in touch re: car rentals......ms. evergreen. You are just "down the road" from Boulder.

What companies don't charge the one way fee for within Croatia? I'm looking for Split-Dub for one day, and then split-rovinj for 4 days, and everything I see including Oryx has one way fees.

Yes a one way rental takes a given car out of a certain company's area car fleet to another area of that company. A bit more detail so you fully understand..your case Split-Dubrovnik..once the Split car is in Dubrovnik it has to make its way to Split. In a perfect world there would be another renter like yourself going one way Dubrovnik Split, leaving Dubrovnik about 1 hour after you get there with the car.. Pretty slim chance..so what is done usualy the car just sits until a future renter needs a Split dropoff, sitting car means no revenue, or a driver from Dubrovnik drives the car to Split..4 hours and 4 hours back ( usualy by bus ) so its extra charges for the drivers overtime, meals, and bus fare to get him back to Dubrovnik. Hope that explains drop fees and why they have to be charged!
