Ljubljana Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Rent a car at Ljubljana Airport! Then drive into the city, park near the center, and take a leisurely stroll through the picturesque Old Town. Make sure to check out the iconic Zmajski Most, or Dragon Bridge, Ljubljana Castle, and the ruins of the Roman-era walls that once enclosed the city.

Ljubljana is home to some top-notch museums: the Architecture Museum of Ljubljana, the National Gallery, and the Museum of Modern Art are just a few. After you take in all the culture and history, enjoy a delicious meal—burek is a savory pie baked with a variety of fillings, or, if you’re feeling really adventurous, try a Slovenian horse meat burger.

Ljubljana’s a great destination, but there’s so much more to explore. With a longer term car rental deal you can visit the Slovenian Alps and head to the beautiful beach towns, Koper and Izola, or drive to neighboring Austria, Hungary, Italy, or Croatia. You can even pick up your rental car at Ljubljana Airport and drop it off in a different city. Start planning your adventure today!

Ljubljana Airport is also called Jože Pučnik Airport, Brnik Airport, and Letališče Jožeta Pučnika Ljubljana.
