Car hire in Croatia is the best way to explore the pristine forests, sparkling Adriatic waters, and historic ruins of this Central European gem. Take the independent route in your rental car and explore the cosmopolitan capital Zagreb or tour the dramatic Dalmatian Coast Road.

Very simple booking process and everything went smoothly from making the reservation to collecting and dropping off the car. Was nice to receive no hidden charges (unlike past experiences with other car hire companies)

I would love to make a great comment about you people, but could not find any "Make a Comment" link! Thanks again for another great rental car experience!

We have used Nova twice now for overseas car hire and they will be the first place for us in the future. The service and help has been great, and in 2008, when I had a problem with the first party hire company, Nova sorted it for me quickly and with a positive outcome.
