You do not need a car to get around Zagreb as the public transport system is excellent. If you do have a car, remember that the core of the town centre is pedestrian only. As in many European cities, there are a welter of one-way streets that can make navigation difficult. Also, cars share the same roads as trams which gives you one other thing to watch out for.
I find that Autoeurope or Economy Car Rentals usually offer the best deals on car rentals in Zagreb. But there are plenty of other car rental companies with offices in central Zagreb or at the airport.
There are 24,174 parking places in Zagreb but try and find a spot when you need it!
Zagreb has three parking zones. Parking in the red zone in the city centre costs 6 Kn an hour, in the yellow zone 3 Kn and in the green zone 1.5 Kn an hour. The daily rates are 100Kn in the red zone, 60Kn and 20Kn in the yellow and green zones respectively. Daily tickets can be purchased in the post office.
You may pay for hourly parking either by inserting coins into the nearby parking meter and placing the ticket in the windshield or by texting your registration number to the number shown on the parking sign.
A new system allows users to pay for electronic parking tickets at a nearby tisak by presenting the registration number and the desired zone to the clerk.
Not only are fines steep for illegal parking but you risk getting towed.
There are a number of indoor garages and rates are reasonable. You will pay 4Kn/hour from 8am to 6pm; 1.50Kn/hour from 6pm to 8am and all day Sunday. The following indoor garages are open 24/7. (See a Zagreb street map)
