Dring to Plitvice National park

Hi, We are looking at driving from Split to Plitvice National Park, and return to Split. Is it difficult for an Aussie who has had a bad driving experience in Spain. Would we experience a lot of traffic on the roads, and are the roads narrow, as in Italy.What is the signage like. ? . Where is the best place to haire a car in Split. Some have suggested we bus it, but I like the idea of stopping etc. . If the bus is convenient, maybe that is the way to go..Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks RSA

Hi rsa, don't worry for past bad experiences, it is past. In Split you can rent a car and drive on the freeway (highway) which is 2 lane pretty good one, if you keep always on the right you will be fine (don't forget that the WHITE BROKEN line separating lanes is ALWAYS CLOSE TO THE DRIVER, no matter whether you drive in Australia or here!) . The signage is similar to yours, as far as I remember, except we don't have many yellow warning signs (perhaps you could google about standard European signage and get prepared).

One day trip from Split and coming back in the same day would be perhaps too much driving for you, app. 3 hours in each direction. Car will give you freedom to explore but you can also go by bus, but you could considering stayin overnight in Plitvice as well.

Regarding renting the car, you will have to book it in advance (which month are you coming to Croatia?) since it is expected to be busy season, or just ask in your hotel. Most rental companies are located at the parking just in the Split center, close to the ferry port, so in case you didn't book, you can go directly and see what they have available. Cheers
