Suzuki Swift in Croatia

In February 2024 we rented a car for a couple of days in Split through TakeCars website, everything was great! We originally ordered a Suzuki Swift - but in fact the manager offered a Suzuki Vitara without extra charges. The car turned out to be excellent - clean and comfortable, although we heard a lot of stories about the local outdated fleet. The rental staff explained everything clearly in English, gave advice about local peculiarities and what to do in emergency situations. When renting a car they made a video recording of all the damage and returning the car was just as easy and quick. The roads and views were great too, so we had the best experience of the trip - definitely recommend it!
