No rentCons: I didn't rent the car at all as I couldn't get in touch with the rep in TIvat. I did find him on the airport when I landed, but I had already booked something else. In any case there is a catch with the price - need to rent the winter equipment, so in the end the price is not so good at all.
Tivat is a small resort town on the south-west coast of Montenegro, so the first thing you’ll want to do when planning a trip there is to book a hire car – because while you’ll find plenty of ferries to take you along the Adriatic Coast, that’s about all the public transport you’ll find. Car hire in Tivat will allow you to make your own way and to head inland on day trips to some of the glacial lakes in the area. One such is Black Lake and Djurdjevica Tara Bridge in the Durmitor National Park, which will take about 2h to reach by car. Skadar Lake is a real beauty too, about 3h out. Conversely in the centre of Tivat you’ll enjoy the relaxed vibe in the main tourist area of Pine Embankment.
Your Tivat visit will start as you land at Tivat International Airport, known since it was built as the Gate of the Adriatic. It also couldn’t be easier to locate the operator with whom you’ve booked your Tivat car hire. As you exit customs the Avis, Budget, Hertz, Sixt and other kiosks will be immediately on your right, opposite the rest rooms and adjacent to the terminal exit. The parking lot where you can collect your car is about a 2-minute walk to your left as you exit the building. From there it’s a mere 5-minute drive to central Tivat.
Tivat isn’t only one of the most popular tourist resorts on the eastern Adriatic coast; it’s also grown into the major centre of nautical tourism in the region. So you can expect to encounter plenty of traffic on the waterfront areas of the town – one might say all activity is centred on this district. So if you’re heading in that direction, it’s best to park a little way away and walk the rest of the quarter mile or so. Otherwise you’ll have no problems driving around the town, bar narrow streets in the older part of town. Once you’re in the surrounding countryside, the twisty mountain roads make it a pleasure to drive around.
One wouldn’t say that Tivat has a rush hour: it’s traffic rhythms are more related to the nautical activities than any kind of regular commuter activity. In any event, the town is small enough, that most local inhabitants walk to and from work. It’s inevitable, however, that some streets can get busier than others at any time of the day. Arsenalska runs along the harbour front, and the only access point is by taking Istarska. The latter can get a tad busy where the larger Njegoseva main road joins it.

You virtually have free rein when it comes to the right model to choose for your car hire in Tivat. This will very much depend on your reasons for visiting. If you’re into the yachting side of things, then an MPV will make it easy to get in and out of the harbour district without too much traffic hassle, with room for all your personal sailing gear. And while it may be fun to drive the mountain roads in something sporty, you need to consider that some of the natural attractions will be more suited to a 4x4.
While Tivat may be a relaxing place to visit, the local constabulary certainly isn’t when it comes to enforcing the speed limits. There are only two speed limits in Montenegro and you’ll be strictly limited to 50km/h (about 30mph) in the town, and to 80km/h (just under 50mph) on the open rounds around it.
