Rent a car in Dubrovnik- our nightmare
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!!!!!!!!!!!!Related to:

Excursions from Dubrovnik during low season
During low season from end of September till end of May it is not that simple to do the island hopping tour - check the ferry timetable carefully and don't count on organized day-trip cruises.
under Dubrovnik area
To get to Mljet check the link Dubrovnik - Sudurad - Sobra
but it sails once a day, and only on Wednesday it sails from Dubrovnik in the morning and leaves Mljet at 14.30 - that's too short for a visit, in my opinion, unless you decide to spend a night there - check for private rooms on the internet, perhaps eve for hotels if they are open during low season.
If you are that adventurous, then you can continue next day (or later) with another ferry from Sobra to Prapratno on Peljesac peninsula
then take a local bus or hitchike to Orebic (cca 50-60 km of scenic road) and take a ferry to Korcula
for local buses adn ferry connections check
you'll probably have to search for Ston instead of Prapratna because the bus station is there - drivers usually pick up the ferry passengers closer to the port, this is a new port so I guess they have established a bus station there by now.
From Korcula you can return to Dubrovnik directly with the coastal ferry - but it doesn't sail every day so check and plan carefully http://www.jadrolinija.hr/pdfs/COASTAL%20LINE%20-31.12.pdf
