Why rent a car in Ljubljana?
Renting a car in Ljubljana is a great way to fully explore the city. Obviously with a car you have the freedom to go where you want and when you want! In Ljubljana there is a great bus transport system that works with a card called “urbana”. But unfortunately the bus doesn’t go so often and sometimes is full of people.
The same applies to the whole country. From Ljubljana you can go with train or bus to many touristic places like Bled or Maribor but other idyllic places in Slovenia are not reachable in an easy way with the public transport, for example Kranjska Gora, Goriska Brda, Lipica or Logarska Dolina. In addition, with a car you can easily enjoy the slovenian beaches or explore other wonderful places in this country.

Driving in Slovenia
Slovenia is a country where people care about having things in order. The quality of services are no exception when we talk about the routes and highways in Slovenia. It is very hard to find a route or street that is in bad condition. On the opposite, you will drive and enjoy your ride in one of the most beautiful countries in Europe.
These are the following speed limits:

Slovenia uses a driving pass system called vignette. This is a sticker you must buy and use while driving on highways. It should be sticked in your windshield to avoid fines. If you rent a car in Slovenia it is very probable that it already has the vignette. If you want to buy one you can do it at a gas petrol station.
