Compare the best Slovenia car hire deals

Slovenia is one of Europe's most unspoilt holiday destinations, a country of spectacular mountains and inviting forests. It's a paradise for winter-sports fans and outdoors enthusiasts - hiring a car is one of the best ways to ensure you see everything that the country has to offer.

Hire-car pick-up can be arranged at Ljubljana Jože Pucnik Airport (LJU), located 12 miles north of the capital city of Ljubljana, which is characterised by its distinctive Art Nouveau architecture. Palaces and gothic churches add to the range of architectural delights available to anyone taking advantage of Slovenia car hire deals, with a variety of enchanting buildings dotted throughout the beautiful landscape. An especially famous church can be seen in the enchanting town of Bogojina.

Another great thing about Slovenia is that there's plenty to do, whether in winter or summer. Although only a small country, the landscape is very diverse, ranging from vineyards to flower meadows, rolling farmland to high mountain peaks. Summer means the great beaches are available, while winter sees thousands heading up to places such as the Julian Alps or the Kranjska Gora mountains for skiing and snowboarding.

Summer also opens up the mountains to hikers and mountain bikers, while rivers such as the Soca provide canoeists, kayakers and rafters with a great environment in which to enjoy themselves. Anyone who simply likes great views will love the Logarska Dolina valley, with car hire in Slovenia making it possible to take in all of its delights. Unesco World Heritage Sites such as the stunning Skocjan Caves provide plenty more to see, while Lake Bohinj is one of the most beautiful glacial lakes in the world.

Without a car, simply seeing a fraction of what this magical country has to offer would be difficult.

Book your hire car in advance to save money and arrange to collect your vehicle upon arrival at one of Slovenia's airports or at a car-rental site in one of the many downtown locations around the country.

Where to explore?

When you book car rental, Slovenia is yours for the taking. So where will you go first?

The attractive and lively capital city of Ljubljana is the perfect base for your driving tour of Slovenia. Whether you select one of the excellent hotels in the city and make day trips from your base, or use Ljubljana as a starting point for your tour of the nation, the central location and tourist amenities in Ljubljana will meet all of your holiday needs.

It takes just a little over an hour by road from Ljubljana to reach the small stretch of Slovenian coastline wedged between the borders of Italy and Croatia. Resorts such as Portoroz, Strunjan, Piran, Izola and Koper offer a unique alternative to neighbouring Italian and Croatian destinations on the dazzling Adriatic coast.

Driving north from Ljubljana, the mountains of the Gorenjska region are also just an hour away from the city, while Lake Bled is a mere 40-minute journey from the capital. Whatever the weather, this northern corner of Slovenia overwhelms visitors with raw natural beauty. From Bled's glass-like lake, in which the church island is reflected, to Triglav, the country's highest peak, there's no shortage of astonishing vistas and things to do amid this diverse terrain. You'll probably find that one day just isn't enough here.

Maribor is another popular destination in Slovenia, 90 minutes north-east of Ljubljana by road. The nation's second-largest city, Maribor is an alpine beauty. The ancient architecture and small-town charms of Maribor marry perfectly with its countryside setting and the area's vine-growing prowess. There's nothing finer here than sitting at the edge of the Drava River with a glass of something local and fruity.
