    • Car rental and lighthouse

      Pula 2 hours ago

      I am trying to decide whether we (2 people) will rent a car in Pula for a day or just take the bus from Pula to Rovinj. Can anyone (preferably who has actually rented from a local company, not just someone who knows of one) give me any advice on who to rent from? I don't want to have to go to the airport to rent; I want something in center city. Also, is there anything to look out for? Do you think we'll understand enough to be able to read the rental contract? Are there companies that don't require you to put any more down in advance that you can't get back if you change your mind?

      I mostly just want to go to Rovinj, a little down on the Verudela (spelling?) peninsula and then Pula.

      Also, does anyone know anything about the lighthouse at the bottom of the peninsula? Do you have to go through a private community to get to it? Can anyone just go there to take pictures? I know the inside is probably not open, but I'm fine with that. Thanks.

We are going over a few days before the festival starts so we are looking for a town/city that would accomadate a group of young people in their 20's that want to go out in a place full of nightclubs and good bars.

    • Best way to travel?

      Pula Jul 25, 2014 at 3:14 AM

      I am going to Croatia in September for Outlook festival but I am coming a few days early as the flight is cheaper and we wanted to look around a bit first. We are flying into Rijeka airport as the flights are cheaper which I believe is on the island of krk on the 31st of aug. We wanted to either stay on the island for the night and the next day travel to the island of Pag and then back to Pula by evening of the 2nd of aug.

      Do you think its worth even staying in Rijeka at all or going straight to Pag? Also what is the quickest/cheapest option to get from Rijeka to Pula? I hear there is a bus but does anyone know long it takes/how much it is?

    • Wimdu and co - 90% cancellation fees!!!

      Pula Jul 21, 2014 at 5:30 AM

      We have booked an accomodation in Pula, Croatia through http://www.wimdu.at/. Unfortunately we had to cancel it.
      The site conditions are that we're getting 100% the money back up to two days before check -in and 80% if less than 2days. Imagine the surprise when we received a sheet telling us they charge us 90% for cancellation. Of course we called support for explanation and he said , well these fees are retained by their partner ( Holiday Home) that we are working with. And by maikng the reservation we've agreed with ours aswell as their conditions. As usual nobody's fault wemust have missed reading something written in small letters. I feel taken for a fool and robbed. Anyone had similar experience? My husband went today to the Arbeiterkammer. Let's see what it will bring.

    • Porec to Ljubljana - direct transport

      Porec Jul 2, 2014 at 4:53 AM

      Hi
      Searched the following website for buses between Porec departing 18:10 to Ljubljana arriving 20:43 (30441)
      and note there are 2 buses scheduled per day both too late for me.

      balkanviator.com/en/bus-time...

      Also found the following and it has too many chages of buses/trains:

      Depart Poreč, Bus station 08:15, arrive Pazin, Bus station 08:50 (14204 )

      Depart Pazin 10:22, arrive Lupoglav 10:51 (S-Bahn)

      Depart Lupoglav 15:10 arrive Buzet 15:28 ( S-Bahn)

      Depart Buzet 16:00 arrive Divaca 16:47( R 7704)

      Depart Divaca 16:55 arrive Ljubljana 18:40 (R 2615)

      Are there more direct option in the morning by bus?

      Thanks

      Hi we are trying to find a way to travel from Rovinj to Zadar in late May. Train travel doesn't seem to be the way to go and it is too early for ferries as they don't start until June. I have searched for a bus from Rovinj and Pula to Zadar but cannot find anything. Have searched the Bus Croatia and nothing. We just can't seem to find any options for us apart from hiring a car which we'll only do if there's no other option. Do any of you Croatian travellers have any suggestions? Would be most appreciated. Thanking you in advance :-)
