Travel from Venice to Croatia

Getting ready to book flight into Rome for a week in Tuscany, then on to Croatia. Would like to rent a car in Rome, use through Tuscany and into Venice - and ideally through to Croatia and return in Zagreb for flight home out of Zagreb.

Is this possible to rent in Rome and return in Zagreb? If not - what do you suggest for travel to Zagreb? Cheap - we are a family of 5! Will need car from Rome, to Tuscany to Venice. Ideally into Slovenia and Croatia. Or a train from Venice? Help!!

All ideas and help are welcomed!

You cannot do that.

Try to return car in Trieste, get on the bus and go to Rijeka. Than rent car there. Italians might charge extra for different drop off location. PLUS (!) 95% of Italian rental companies will not allow their toy cars to be taken anywhere east of Italian/Slovenian border.

Or return the car when you get to Venice as it will not be any use to you there. Either get the boat to Istria (relatively expensive) or train to Trieste and bus to Rijeka.

We are doing something similar and are a family of 5. The car rentals in Venice won't let us drive to Slovenia and Croatia so we have booked a minibus into Slovenia and picking up a hire car there and driving it one way and dropping it off at Split. We are using www.Goopti.com and there is a similar one called www.drd.si. Can't tell you yet if is successful! As Sept is just outside season the boats don't go everyday but you could be lucky. Or bus/train could also do it.. Good luck.

We always rent a car in Venice for driving in Slovenia and Croatia without any problems. We do this every May and October.

Thanks for all the ideas. The ferry to Istria may be an option.

Who do you rent from in Venice? And do you bring it back or can I leave it off in Zagreb?

Thanks!!
