Si & Hr
Sounds very strange to me. Croatia is loaded with German cars every year from May till late September, and has been till '91 and from roughly '98, so I don't see any reason you should have problems with your insurance. Just for info - nobody checks your GC at the border anymore. If you're later covered, that's another issue. Since you're travelling to HR: if, hopefully not, a minor accident occours, you should think twice whether to call the police or not. Strangely, if you call them in Croatia, first thing they do is to write BOTH OF YOU a fine for being involved in an accident! And supposedly for "their services." Also, try not to exceed the speed limits too much. Radars are everywhere. Though, keep in mind they by law tolerate 10kph. So, if you drive 93 on 60 speed limit, they only charge you for 23kph excesss. And it still goes like this:
"Mr. Rider, this will cost you 800 HRK."
"Oh, but that seems a lot to me."
"Does it? So, what is your suggestion?"
"Hmm, couldn't we make it cheaper?"
"Hahaha, Mr. Rider, you would like it cheaper? So, how much are you ready to pay?"
"I don't know, 300, maybe?"
"Oh, but we don't have receipts for that little money..."
"Oh, never mind, I don't need a receipt."
Don't try this at home. And don't try it in Slovenia. Safe journey!
Even the temporarily worst things in life are good for something on a long run.
Don't dream your life. Live your dreams.
