airport car rental

by iaint

I'm going to be renting a car at the airport in October - to visit Mostar & Kotor as well as Dubrovnik area.

Anyone have any positive or negative experiences to share in relation to the rental companies which operate at the airport?

I know I'll need a certificate of insurance for the border crossings and a St Christopher for the Mostar road. Any other tips about the borders?

I rented from Avis, the car was brand new and the service very friendly. The experience I wish to share isn't realted to rental companies, but I think it's useful to be aware of such things. It was in 2007, we went to Montenegro - Kotor, Budva, Lovcen, Skadarsko lake. I hope the situation has improved by now, but many drivers there were very agressive and rude, and especially vulgar (universal sign-language) because the car had Dubrovnik license plates - this was explained to me by one friendly local. Also, respecting the speed limit is very healthy, even though this drives the locals mad, but the police just "loooves" foreigners.
I wish you a safe and pleasant trip!

Dear friends,
i can tell you only one thing about Dubovnik and Croatia.... don`t hire a car with KOMPAS company.
We had their car for one week, pay almost double than in any other company in Dubrovnik, and at the end for one small damage what we did not make we paid almost 1.500€.
Also, the car was not checked when we take a car from them, they say that it is all OK and after that whan we finished we wait two hours for them to come and pick up the car, and call them on phone at least 10 times, they did not answer. They did not show, we have to catch our flight and leave the keys at some other company, i think SIXT.
After we have lended in Moscow, and turn on our mobile we receive bank notification that our credit card has been charged.
We call them again and they answer this time and told us that on the car was two minnor damages on the front bumper and they have right to charge that how much they like because i sign their conditions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Damages on the car was 1cm long and 0.5cm wide. Only small small small small damage.
That damages was on the car when we pick up the car, we told them that but they said it is ok on the pick up and later they charge us.
I have spoken with few more peoples from Russia, they told me that they have same situation with that company, and one of them had that same car Opal Astra DU412 registration.
Car was extremly dirty whan we pick the same, no fuel inside, and smell very bad. We have to wash that car because we can not drive it like that.
This was our worst car rental ever!!!!!!!!
Don` t make same mistake like we do, don` t rent a car with KOMPAS rent it anywhere else!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks all. I booked with Avis. Maybe I paid a little more to be with a multinational, but I know what can go wrong and at least with company like Avis I have a chance of it being corrected.

I had an unhappy experience with Hertz recently, but at least their customer service sorted it out properly.

Travel Tips for Dubrovnik

charming dubrovnik

by call_me_rhia

Dubrovnik is a small fortified town in the south of Croatia - more precisely in Dalmatia. it may be small - but in term of interesting places it's incredibly rich - within the old city walls everything that you see is beautiful, memorable, unforgettable The old narrow steeets, the richly ornate palaces, the town's wall and pila gate.... and then again the simple houses, the rocky beaches, the delicious restaurants... everything in this magical city is a highlight!

go and visit Old Town (the Old...

by Kamen_mali

go and visit Old Town (the Old City of Dubrovnik, see picture). From outside it has immense walls - 2km of them, 25 meters high and 2 meters thick, with towers and fortresses.
But, give or take a shopfront and ignoring the streets lighting, the city looks much as it must have 200 years ago. There are no cars and, repair work aside, very little has been built since the 18th century. It is a kind of Venice without the canals: its architecture a mixture of Renaissance, Gothic and Baroque, the white limestone, burnished to a shine over the centuries and the same water-sharpened light.
The best way to get a sense of the Old City as a whole is to walk its walls (the main entrance is near the Pile Gate). From this vintage point, streets that seem labyrinthine on the level appear to form an approximate grid, and you'll get a sense of the layout of the town, its four monasteries, its fountains and campaniles. Better still are are the spectacular views across the deep indigo waters of the Adriatic to the islands beyond. But the sight of so many newly tiled roofs, the small areas of shell-damaged wasteland (damaged by Serbian and Montenegrin forces during 1991. and 1992.) and the occasional pock-marked facade also remind you how much rebuilding there's been.
Dubrovnik is more for wondering around than sightseeing. The main street, also known as Stradun or Placa, is lined with shops and cafés. Sometimes, in the heat of the afternoon, the town seems deserted, but come early evening, when locals take to the streets for the 'korzo' .... the streets are alive with chatter and people trying to tempt you into their resturants.
But only 20 km from Dubrovnik is CAVTAT, the ancient Epidaurum on the Adriatic; Civitas Vetus - predecessor to Dubrovnik, a medievial township constructed after a zoning plan on the slopes of a penninsula with two easily accessible bays.
There is a legend saying that the name 'Cavtat' is associated with the gorgeous Cavtislava, whose father said he would give her to a man who would be the fastest to do four things: construct a peripheral fortification around the town, a big temple in the town, an aqueduct, or bring in a ship loaded with silk. Another legend says that 'Cavtat' derives from the old Croatian verb 'captiti' - 'to blossom', referring to the yellow juniper. The legend relates its doom to the catastrophes, after which the indestructible Cavtat would come back to life again and anew.
When in Croatia enjoy local cuisine, because people along the coast appreciate a good fish, either grilled ('na gradele') or simply cooked ('leso'). There are also plenty of other fish recipes - 'buzara' (fish or shellfish in a special sauce), 'brodet' (similar to Italian 'brodetto'), risottos (don't forget to try 'black risotto') and salads make of fruits of the sea. Excellent menues are usually accompanied by high-quality Croatian wines (famous 'Dingac' from Peljesac), but you also don't want to miss Croatian bradies - 'rakija' (along the coast there are 'loza' and 'travarica') and liquers (in Dalmatia try 'prosek').
When you're invited to 'konoba' (small pub), don't hasitate to come. There you will have the opportunity to savour the best Croatian gastronomy - to taste the thinly sliced 'prsut' with black or green olives washed in the sea, followed with intoxicating wine tasting.
Enjoy yourself!!!!

Swim with the locals

by podinfrance

Exit the city through the North gate, cross over the plaza and find your way down to the beach, the first beach, under the city wall, is for boats, continue to meander North and look for a discreet doorway on your left, poke your head through and see if there is a beach around the corner. There is a place to dive into the water, a shower, a toilet, a stone beach for little ones and a polo pool floating in te inlet. It is all less than a ten minute walk from the town wall.

Another spot is along the west wall of the city. Find a map, there are two doors that now exist, through the once impenetrable wall. they are tiny doors marked only by signs that say something like "cold drinks". They open up onto the Adriatic, with a small imple cafe at each, and access to the water. They are public and free and not safe during rough seas. At each you will fin places where the locals dive into te water along sde the tourists from cliffs a few feet above the water up to grand 40 foot dives.

Coast - North From Dubrovnik

by pure1942

A trip up the coast will reward travellers with spectacular coastal scenery and pretty villages of red roofed buildings and tall bell-towers. Ideally you should hire a car to properly explore the villages and towns along the coast towards the town of Ston. However from buses along the coast you can still admire the stunning views from the bus as it curves and twists its way through the coastal mountains along the turquoise waters of the Adriatic. Some of the villages you pass on the way, are disgustingly beautiful...if you know what I mean ;)...my disgust stemming from the fact that I was stuck on a bus and not wandering around these gorgeous little sea-side villages on foot. If I was going...or should I say...when I go back I will definitely be hiring a car to explore the Dalmatian coast more freely.
