Credit Cards

Credit cards aren't used everywhere in Croatia, so it's best to always have some cash on you. There are typically ATMs in every city and also most times in small towns. 

Voltage

The standard voltage in Croatia is 230 V, the frequency is 50 Hz, and the plug type is C and F. You cannot use your electric appliances in Croatia without a voltage converter, because the standard voltage in Croatia (230 V) is higher than in the US (120 V). 

Driving

The minimum age for owning a driver’s license in Croatia is 18. Most car rental companies will only rent cars to persons 18 and older. People drive on the right side of the road. Croatia uses metric units (kilometers) for driving-related measurements. Major distances are always measured in kilometers. Speed limits are given in kilometers per hour. Fuel uses the metric system and is bought in litres.

When To Visit

The best time to visit Croatia is September to October when the kids have gone back to school and the crowds have calmed down. Restaurants and hotels will be cheaper during this time.
