Campervan Rental Split

Split is a peninsular city located on Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast, right on the shores of the Adriatic Sea. After Zagreb, it’s the country’s second-most-populous city, but it’s the most popular with tourists and expats. Nestled between the glistening sea and the spectacular mountains, this is a city deeply connected to the beauty of nature. The Old Town is a labyrinth that’s hardly changed since the fourth century and remains one of the best-preserved Roman towns. Tourists come for the low living costs, beautiful weather, calming natural scenery, historical exploration, and ever-charming locals. If you opt for an RV rental in Split, then you’ll have easy access to must-see places like Bacvice Beach, Diocletian's Palace, and Marjan Hill.

Getting to Split

Split is Croatia’s biggest tourist city, meaning that it’s incredibly accessible. In fact, it’s home to the busiest airport in the country, with most people arriving by plane. The flight from London is just 2.5 hours, then it’s a mere 20 minutes drive to Split city center or 30 minutes on the shuttle bus. Although a train station exists, there are no direct routes and services are infrequent. The bus is a better option and serves Split from other big towns and cities. If arriving by car, then you’ll likely come via the A1 highway, which offers a connection from Zagreb in under four hours.

Parking in Split

Like many big cities, it isn’t always easy to find parking in a motorhome rental in Split. If you don’t want to drive into the city itself, then you can park on the outskirts at either Joker Mall (7kn/€1 an hour) or ACI Marina (75kn/€10 for the day). The best parking in the city center includes the railway station and the ferry port, where you’ll pay 24kn/€3 an hour or 240kn/€30 for 24 hours. Split is split into four zones, determining the cost of parking. In zone four, you can park for just 36kn a day. Bear in mind that this is well outside of Split's city center, though, even as far as Trogir.

Annual events in Split

Split comes alive during its annual events. Here are three you should definitely check out:

  • Split Summer Festival: Free - In July and August, witness opera, theater, ballet, and live music on the streets of Split.
  • International Festival of New Film: 20kn/€2.50 per film - If you’re a film fan, then consider delaying your trip until September. You’ll watch experimental new film projects and attend free talks.
  • Days of Marko Marulic: 150kn-200kn/€20-€25 per show - Celebrate Split’s greatest playwright with a week of theater performances.

Camping in Split

Split doesn’t allow wild camping, but there are plenty of campsites that allow campervans, such as:

  • Belvedere: A charming and stunning village near Trogir - 170kn-270kn/€20-€35
  • Stobreč Split: A four-star peninsular campsite on the River Žrnovica - around 100kn/€13
  • Boutique Camping Bunja: A unique chance to camp on Split’s nearby island of Brač - 150kn-300kn/€20-€40

The best time to rent a RV in Split

Weather graph for average temperatures in Split
Average temperatures in Split per month

Located in southern Croatia, Split enjoys glorious heat in July and August, usually reaching temperatures between 30°C and 35°C. Given its coastal location and abundance of delicious ice cream, this is ideal. Holiday goers are happy to spend their days lounging on the beach or enjoying the cool breeze that accompanies a speedboat ride.

The best time to rent a campervan in Split is April, May, or October because this will offer milder weather and fewer crowds.

During this time, expect average highs of around 20°C. This is the ideal weather for exploring the mountains that surround the city. January and December hit temperatures of around 10°C, meaning that a swim might be out of the question. This is the best time to come and explore the history of the Roman Old Town, though.

The colder months are also the cheapest time to visit. You’ll avoid the over-priced tourist traps and have the opportunity to take cheaper boat rides. Crowds are significantly reduced during the winter, autumn, and spring months. Museums and surrounding national parks also offer reduced prices for tourists visiting at these times.

However, given the coastal location of Split, you can expect increased rainfall, higher wind speeds, and choppier seas. Still, you’ll avoid the below-freezing weather experienced by countries in Northern Europe. On a calm day, ideal activities include trekking through some of the world’s most beautiful national parks.
