- The essentials - In Croatia, a passport is the only recognised form of identification. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office suggests to carry your passport on you at all times and keep a photocopy of it in a safe and secure place. As well as this, Croatia travel insurance is also strongly recommended as the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) is not valid in Croatia.
- Money - There are plenty of ATMs in Croatia and major debit and credit cards are accepted in most banks and hotels. If you’re considering other forms of travel money, take a look at other travel money options.
- Getting around - Buses are probably the cheapest and easiest way of getting around Croatia. Many bus routes run frequently, are fairly comfortable and also, most importantly, air-conditioned. If you’re thinking of travelling to the smaller islands in Croatia, don't hesitate. It’s the best way to get a glimpse of the beautiful Croatian islands, with each one being slightly different, but yet still very Croatian.
If you’re planning to hit the road either by hiring or driving down, make sure you have valid car insurance, European breakdown cover and a V5 log book for proof of ownership of the vehicle. For travel guidelines, take a look at our handy guide to driving in Croatia.
