KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Opatija

  • If you’d like to explore an old-school tourist destination favoured by kings and nobility for centuries, Opatija is the ideal Croatian destination for you. While the town itself is relatively small and easy to explore on foot, car hire in Opatija is a wise way to ensure you get the most out of your stay in this beautiful coastal region of Croatia. With a hire vehicle at your disposal, you can luxuriate on nearby beaches like Plaza Kantrida, explore the waterfalls, canyons and historic sites in Park Prirode Ucka or hike the mountainous trails of Risnjak National Park with ease.
  • Picking up your Opatija hire car at the airport is an excellent idea, as you’ll get to enjoy the stunning coastal drive between Rijeka International Airport (RJK) and downtown Opatija. Rijeka Airport has a single terminal building, and the hire car offices are conveniently located in the arrivals hall. If you require a specific type of vehicle or automatic transmission, it’s a good idea to book car hire in Opatija online in advance through KAYAK. Select Rijeka Airport as your pick-up and drop-off destination, and your vehicle of choice should be ready and waiting for you when you arrive.
  • Using car hire in Opatija, remember that you will need to drive on the right-hand side of the road; if necessary, you’ll also overtake on the left. It’s also worth noting that children under 12 years of age are never allowed to sit in the front passenger seat. If you’re driving with kids aged five and under, they must be secured in a child seat suitable for their age. You can ask your hire car company about the appropriate child seat when you make your booking.
  • It’s important to note that in Opatija and the other small towns along the Istrian Peninsula, the roads can be quite narrow. You’ll find many small winding laneways with cars parked on either side of the street and a lot of tight one-way roads with walls on either side. For this reason, it’s helpful to have a GPS in your hire vehicle, as this will ensure you don’t accidentally go the wrong way and get stuck.
  • Book your rental car in Opatija at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Opatija are around -24% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Opatija?

    Given the prevalence of tight, one-way alleys and narrow streets in Opatija and the surrounding areas of western Croatia, a small, economy car hire is a wise way to get around. This will make driving and parking far easier, and as a bonus, it will be an economical option in terms of fuel. If you’ll be travelling in a large group or bringing a lot of luggage with you, upsizing to a midsize vehicle will give you the extra legroom and storage space you need without making navigation or parking too much more difficult.

  • What's the speed limit in Opatija?

    In general, you can expect most of the roads in Opatija to have a speed limit of 50 km/h unless otherwise signed. Of course, if you’re navigating narrow streets, you should always drive to the conditions and exercise caution. Some streets, like Ulica Jurja Dobrile, feature car parking on both sides of the road, so it’s important to be wary of pedestrians. Once you head outside the city limits, you’ll start to find main roads with speed limits of up to 90 km/h. On the motorways, you can get up to 130 km/h. However, you must keep an eye out for speed signs and obey them at all times.

  • Where are the best places to park in Opatija?

    In Opatija, you will find a mix of on-street parking and paid car parks with coin-operated meters. Most of these do not accept credit cards or other forms of payment; it’s worth holding onto some spare change and keeping it in your hire car, so you always have money for parking meters. Though prices may vary, you can generally expect to pay around kn 10 (approx A$ 1.95) per hour.
