Can two couples do this effectively time wise and cost wise?
Is the cheapest Large car, Skoda Octavia, adequate?
Rentacarsplit.net is who I'm thinking of using, about $450 with insurances,
and including 65 euro drop charge.
Fly into Zagreb and stay downtown two nights without a car.
Get car and go to|:
Plitvice Lakes for 2 nights,
Split (or Trogir?) for 1 night and most of next day,
Only drive a couple hours to Makarska for 1 night,
Bigger day of driving the next day 5 hours or more?
Stopping at Ston and passing in and out of Bosnia
And arriving in Dubrovnik late afternoon or early evening?
Rest and enjoy Dubrovnik for 5 nights in same Sobe or vrbo.
Best side trips: Kotor (by boat possible?), Mostar,
An island like Mljet or Korcula.
For a total three week trip we plan to fly from DBV to Italy for the final 9 nights.
