Why rent a car in Slovenia?

Slovenia is a great place to discover by car. Small and beautiful, it has such different destination as the Dinaric Alps, medieval towns, and the Adriatic Coast, not to mention equally interesting neighbors that are easy to reach. Having your own ride is the best bet to see it all.

Slovenia Car Rental

Top ways to enter Slovenia

  • Ljubljana Airport: By far the largest Slovenia’s airport, it hosts flights to and from many destinations in Europe and beyond.
  • Maribor Edvard Rusjan Airport: As of January 2019, Maribor Airport is currently defunct, but it might host flights again in the near future.
  • By land: If your rental car provider permits it, it’s possible to rent a car in a neighboring country and then drive to Slovenia. Some large international airports near Slovenia are Vienna Airport in Austria, Venice Airport in Italy, and Zagreb Airport in Croatia.

Top cities and places to visit

  • Ljubljana: Although not as well known as some larger cities in Slovenia’s neighboring countries, Ljubljana is one of Europe’s most picturesque capitals.
  • Coastal Slovenia: The Slovenia’s coast might not be long, but it’s a fun place to visit during summers, as are its vineyards and karst caves.
  • Bled: One of the smallest towns in the world mentioned as a top destination by Lonely Planet, Bled mixes mountain scenery with castles and churches.
  • The Alps: Great destination for skiing and snowboarding in winter, and hiking along the alpine lakes in summer, Slovenian mountains are just as interesting to visit as those in nearby Austria and Italy.
  • Celje: One of the oldest cities in the land, Celje’s architecture is beautiful and diverse, telling the story of its varied history.

Most popular rental car

The most popular rental car in Slovenia is the Opel Corsa, but the VW Golf and the Volkswagen Up are also frequently picked by travelers.

Crossing Borders

Slovenia is bordered by Austria, Hungary, Croatia, and Italy. Just like Slovenia, Austria, Hungary, and Italy are members of the Schengen Area, so if you’ve entered Slovenia with a Schengen Visa, you can also visit any of these three other countries with it. Although Croatia is a member of the European Union (EU), it is not a member of the Schengen Area and has its entry requirements. Depending on your citizenship, you may or may not need a visa to visit Croatia. We strongly advise you getting in touch with your Ministry of Foreign Affairs to find out whether you need a visa to visit Croatia.

Some car rental providers allow you to cross national borders and even drop off your car in a different country, while others don’t. If you’d like to cross a national border during your rental period, make sure to check the terms and conditions before booking a car. Learn more about cross-border rentals in our FAQ section.

Most popular types of rental car

The most popular rental car type in Slovenia is Intermediate, followed by Compact and Economy.

Top driving routes

  1. Ljubljana - Zagreb (143 km / 89 mi) The route between the two capital cities can be done in just under two hours, although you might be tempted to make a stop in the charming Slovenian town of Novo Mesto or in Samobor just across the border. Note that you’ll have to cross a national border, so check with your car rental provider first to make sure they allow it. You’ll also have to leave/enter the Schengen Area, so make sure that you have the right visa if they are required to enter the Schengen Area or Croatia for the citizens of your country. Although Croatia is a member state of the European Union, as of 2019 it is not yet a member of the Schengen Area. It is expected to join in 2020.
  2. Ljubljana - Venice (241 km / 150 mi) Ageless Venice is just a short three hour ride southeast of Slovenia’s capital. Once you’ve visited there, other beautiful Italian cities like Padua, Verona, and even Milan are also within your reach. Note that you’ll have to cross a national border, so check with your car rental provider first to make sure they allow it.
  3. Ljubljana - Vienna (384 km / 238 mi) Beautiful Vienna is just four hours drive north of Ljubljana, and there are many opportunities for fun detours in the way, such as Bleda in Slovenia and Klagenfurt or Graz in Austria. Note that you’ll have to cross a national border, so check with your car rental provider first to make sure they allow it.
