 Slovenia Car Rental Mini Guide

Slovenia is a small country but it has a good road network and renting a car is the best way to get out and explore the pretty rural areas. It boasts beautiful beaches on the Adriatic Sea in the south of the country, mountain ranges and historic cities. The capital city Ljubljana is very charming with its Baroque architecture and a lively feel thanks to the large student population.

Is it easy to drive in Slovenia?

Driving in Slovenia is much like other countries in Central Europe, the road network is generally very good. Expect busy streets and congestion in and around the main towns and cities, particularly around rush hour, but otherwise you should find driving in Slovenia easy and a self-drive rental car here opens up a world of opportunities to explore this beautiful country at your own pace.
