The driving conditions in Bosnia and Herzegovina are especially friendly for visitors, due to their many updated roads. Another advantage is that few roads have tolls. You’ll need an international driver’s permit to rent a car in this country, and it’s a good idea to carry it along with your passport at all times in case of unplanned stops by the local authorities.
You can rent a car in Bosnia and Herzegovina as soon as you turn 21. However, as in the US, some companies have age restrictions for drivers below 25 years of age. Also, if the company rents to drivers under the age of 25, there are often per-day surcharges, which can range from around 17-85 BAM (10 to 50 USD) per day.
Getting fuel for your rental car in Bosnia and Herzegovina will run you a bit more than filling up in the US. The average petrol price in Bosnia is around 8.63 BAM (5.00 USD) per gallon, while in the US, the average cost of petrol sits at around 2.50 USD per gallon. Cards are widely accepted, so there’s no need to scramble for cash when you need to refuel.
The speed limits in the country are a bit more lenient than they are in the United States, as there are four basic speed limits: 60 km/h (37 mph) in suburban areas, 80 km/h (50 mph) outside of suburban areas, 100 km/h (62 mph) on major highways, and up to 130 km/h (81 mph) on motorways, which are the European equivalent to American interstate highways.
