Nova car rental, what's the catch?

Hi there,

I'm looking into renting a car for 10 days from Split airport.

I've checked at all famous company such as Hertz, Europcar, Avis, Thirthy,... it's around 500 to 600 euros. But Nova is only 351 euro. So I'm wondering what's the catch? I've seen in some forum that the price do not include tax but in the online booking it says it does:

Which car rental company should I pick ?

Thanks,

Maxime

350 eur sounds like a normal price - if you book directly through franchise companies you stated the prices are higher, you can get cheaper if you search through online brokers like Autoeurope or similar

Nova rent a car is reliable - I have rented a car with them several time and everything was ok.

i calculated a 10-day rental in May for a Renault Clio Grandtour (pick-up/drop-off in Split) from Fleet Rent-a-Car and it works out to 2,160 kuna which is around 282 euro; I should note that I have not used their service, though

I've used Nova or rentacarSplit and they are fine. Hertz and Avis are always expensive. I've used Fleet too if you want to compare with Nova.

I highly recommend Nova rent a car! Recently used them and everything went just fine, will definitely use them again. www.rentacarsplit.net

Hi Sylwek, Sorry to hear you had a horrible experience. Can you please be more specific? What went wrong? It would help other travellers enormously.

Sorry, a bit off topic, would someone know if we rent a car from Split to slovenia, to austria and then return in Milan? what would be the cheapest options? i would consider renting from smaller companies first within croatia then switch to bigger company that allow us to return in different countries.

thanks so much!
