You have to adapt to and prepare for the right side driving! First, ask around vignettes(road toll) in Slovenia and, perhaps Austria. In Croatia, the toll in cash at toll stations.

By car you can visit a lot. From the mountainous part, central part and coast with Karst. Maybe a spa, maybe Castle Otočec while driving in Zagreb.

You can make a plan.

Where to stay: Every major town in the tourist areas, e.g. Bled, Bohinj, Soca Valley, has an excellent tourist information office that will recommend B&Bs.

The roads are good and the driving is easy.

Rental cars in Slovenia come with the vignette (mine did and apparently that is the norm).

There's plenty to see in Slovenia. You can check our web site for some trip ideas, and then drive yourself:


Most places have youth hostels and simple hotels, or you can find family farmsteads or pensions to stay in.

Enjoy your stay in Slovenia!

We are from the US and spent 2 weeks in Slovenia last month. Driving was easy and roads were in good condition. I thought the drivers were less aggressive than the drivers in some other countries. We stayed at several different properties- two family run Inns and one luxury hotel (Toplice in Bled) I loved each for different reasons. My advice is to not spend much time in cities, but enjoy the scenery and beauty. The people are warm, the place is safe and language was never a problem.
