Q&A ABOUT YUGOS:
Who can drive a Yugo?
Everybody that holds a valid driving license and is at least 21 years old.
If I rent a Yugo, how hard is it to drive it?
It’s a no-power steering old-timer car with no air-conditioning and a manual gearshift. It’s an adventure to drive it! We recommend having longer driving experience for a confident driving in a big city.
Driving a Yugo is not very difficult but it is challenging. If you never drove a similar old-timer car – consider our GUIDED YUGO ADVENTURES
Are your Yugos manual or automatic gearshift cars?
All of them have manual gearshift. It is very important that you are a regular manual car driver because it’s impossible to learn it on the spot. Also, it’s important to understand that our delicate old-timer cars are not appropriate cars for practicing manual driving.
How many people can fit in one Yugo?
Four: two in the front and two in the back
How often do your mechanics check Yugos?
All of our Yugos are well maintained and checked on daily basis. However – they were made in 1987 and 1989, so at any point some small failures can occur… If something happens – call us and we will guide you through what to do and even how to fix it! Every Yugo you rent comes with a mobile phone you can use to call us or the road assistance.
Are the cars safe?
However, they are old-timer Yugos – so no airbags, seatbelts in the backseats or ABS brakes, but they are in top working condition and you are given precise instructions on how to handle them well.
Is there a radio in the car?
All our Yugos have a radio with cassette or CD player
How hot does it get in Croatia and is there an AC in a Yugo?
It gets quite hot in the summer and Yugo does not have an AC – it’s a real 80’s experience – feel the sweat on your back and wind in your hair …

Regarding the maximum speed – limit is 90 km/h.
Our cars are old-timer cars, and driving longer and faster is extremely bad for the machine, therefore we don’t allow it.
