Help me avoid the Slovenia/Croatia rental car problem!

Jump to last reply

I am planning a Slovenia & Croatia trip for September and am trying to figure out car rental logistics to avoid those hefty across the border charges. I will be near Postojna and want to get to Istria. I was thinking I could catch a train from Postojna to Opatija and rent another car to tour Istria and the hill towns. Does this seem reasonable? If I read the train schedules correctly, it appears there are 2 trains daily that go from Postojna to Opatija. If I caught the early one, I could be on my way with a rental before lunch. The goal would be to make it to Rovinj to stay the night. I'd like to travel on a Sunday. Will this make a difference? Please give me advice if this idea seems reasonable. Are there car rental companies available at the Opatija train station or will I have to go into town? How difficult is it to get from the train station to the city centre. Is there another option that would be more practical to travel from Slovenia to Istria?
