FAQ - All your one-way rental questions answered!
WHAT CITIES CAN WE PICK UP OR DROP OFF FROM? - Our partner operates from Slovenia so bookings are primarily for any destination to and from Slovenia. Having said that, if you can extend your budget then pick up and drop off in surrounding countries are no problem as well. Examples of recent enquiries are:
Prague to Dubrovnik, Venice to Budapest and Venice to Split. Popular requests are Ljubljana to Split, Venice to Ljubljana, Budapest to Ljubljana.
WHAT IS NORMALLY INCLUDED IN THE RENTAL? - Unlimited kms, Drop off charges, Insurance CDW/TP, paid road tax in Slovenia, free 2nd driver, cross border documents. Not included is fuel and insurance excess charges.
WHAT COUNTRIES CAN WE DRIVE TO? - Our partner will supply a green card or CBC which allows driving in all EU countries including Croatia, Montenegro and Bosnia but Albania is not permitted! We can provide a list if required.
HOW DOES THE BOOKING WORK? - Pretty easily! Once you confirm you wish to book, our excellent rental partners will contact you to discuss payment and the rental details. The booking is made under the rental company's terms and conditions and you will handed over to them for any future correspondence.
HOW DO WE PAY? - Upon pickup, Our rental partners will hold the rental amount plus a deposit (varies dependant on car and insurance) on your credit card as a pre-auth. When the car is returned without incident, the rental amount is charged and the deposit amount is released.
If the car is to be picked up outside Slovenia, a credit card is needed usually up to 7 days prior to pick up for deposit but our partners will confirm that.
HOW OLD ARE THE CARS? - The fleet is very new and the oldest cars are usually only a year old. Short term leases of new cars to supplement the fleet mean that cars are in great condition!
WHAT IF I WANT FULL COMPREHENSIVE INSURANCE? - In Slovenia, CDW (Collision Driver Waiver) is compulsory so will be offered with all rentals. If you have a collision with another car, then the CDW covers most of the repair costs except the excess. CDW usually excludes windscreens, wheels, roof and undercarriage so check your policy.
TP (Theft Protection), covers you if your vehicle is stolen.
SCDW (Super Collision Driver Waiver) means you have zero excess to pay but of course costs more to buy. It is offered as an add-on by rental companies and can be useful for peace of mind.
Some people pay for the rental with a credit card that includes comprehensive insurance so there is no need to buy the SCDW. Others also think they can skip paying for CDW for the same reason but unfortunately this is compulsory whether you want it or not.
WHAT EXTRAS ARE AVAILABLE? - All the normal extra add-ons like GPS and baby seats are available for an extra fee on request.
WHAT SORT OF LICENCE IS REQUIRED?- Obviously you will need to provide proof you have held a licence for 2 years so a current drivers licence is needed. Your passport is also required for proof. If you are from outside the EU, you should also provide an international driving permit or IDP as well. This is especially crucial if your drivers licence is in a non-Roman alphabet. Plus you will need your credit card for payment.
WHAT AGE IS REQUIRED? - This varies from company to company but 21 years is a standard requirement as you must have already held a valid drivers licence for 2 years. On top of this there can be further restrictions depending on the type and power of vehicle being booked. Some also charge a young driver surcharge for being under 25 years. Ask for the terms and conditions.
WHAT HOURS CAN WE PICK UP THE CAR? - No matter where you pick the car up the hours are between 0800-1800 weekdays and 0800-1300 on weekends. If pick up is not from the company's office then a time and location will be confirmed with the client.
PETROL - Dont drive off without checking what fuel your car takes! Diesel is now a popular choice for longer mileage. Most rentals require you to either return the car with a full tank or prepay a tank of fuel beforehand.
ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE - Roadside assistance is provided but remember that if you are in another country other than Slovenia this may take time to organise!
SECOND DRIVER - Make sure that if more than one person if driving the car, that they are included on the paperwork otherwise your insurance will be invalid. Again, a surcharge may apply. The second person must supply the same valid driving ID that the main driver requires.
SNOW TYRES - From 15 November to 15 March (sometimes beyond these dates, during winter weather conditions (e.g. during snowfalls, black ice, etc.)), Slovene law requires all vehicles to be equipped with snow tyres or have snow chains in the car boot. The minimum tyre tread depth must be 3 mm. The rental company is obligated to provide these during these times but may charge a surcharge for the use of the equipment.
TRANSMISSION - Nearly all cars on the road in Slovenia are manual (or stick) but automatics are slowly making inroads once people realise how much easier they are to drive. If you require an automatic, make sure this is stated as most hire companies only have a few on hand and they are generally more expensive.
Do I need an International Driving Permit?? - One of the most frequent questions we get asked is whether you need an International Drivers Permit to drive in Slovenia. Here's the lowdown - You won't need one to hire a car from most rental companies, it isn't required. For the ones who do ask for it, in our experience they never ask for it when picking up a car - as long as you have a valid licence, passport and credit card. If your drivers licence is in a non-Roman alphabet language like arabic then yes, you will definitely need one so it can be translated.
As far as the law goes, everyone says it is law that you must have one whilst driving in Slovenia although we can't find a definitive page that outlines this so we cannot confirm this. The main purpose for the IDP would be for police purposes rather than a rental. If the police pull you over then they will want to see your licence and your passport for identity. If you have a drivers licence from Paraguay they may not have seen one before so cannot verify if it is genuine or not, hence the need for the IDP.
So, do I need to obtain one? - Yes, just to be on the safe side purchase one if you are driving in Slovenia as you never know what can happen!!
'I confess that I was a little nervous about renting a car from someone other than a traditional (large) rental car agency. Our wonderful experience allayed my concerns. They provided top quality cars at reasonable rates. More importantly, their staff accommodated our travel plans and tailored the delivery and pick up to our individual needs. Superior customer service, top quality cars, and fair prices - what more can one ask?'

'We decided to make this portion of our time in Europe a driving tour. I did a bunch of research on car rentals which proved to be very difficult. It is not easy to find a car rental to pick up in one country, go through a total of four countries and then leave it in a different country than our starting point. I was so lucky to come across a terrific company called SloveniaForYou who are partners with a great rental company. They were so helpful and answered all my questions promptly. Joe and Nella ended up renting their car from a different company for literally four times the amount it cost us. The company is owned by a New Zealand / Canadian couple with family ties in Slovenia. They also offer a variety of tours and help with accommodations. We didn’t use them for these purposes but their customer service was so good, that I would not hesitate to use them if (when!) we return to this stunningly beautiful country. Check them out at www.sloveniaforyou.com. It is always so nice to support a local, family owned company that offers truly great service. '

How do I use the vignette for tolled roads in Slovenia?
The vignette is a sticker placed on the windscreen that enables usage of tolled Slovenian motorways and expressways during a limited time period.
This is for all drivers of vehicles up to a maximum permissible weight of 3.5 tonnes.
When approaching a toll booth, simply pick the correct lane for your car and driver through at reduced speed. You will be automatcially tagged so no need to stop. As a result, the overall traffic flow has improved as drivers no longer need to stop and this has positively affected both road safety and the CO2 emissions.
You can purchase a vignette from most petrol stations and other authorised dealers but your rental should already come with one anyway. For a full list click HERE
If arriving from another country, make sure you buy one BEFORE entering Slovenia and progressing along a tolled freeway. Fines can be hefty if caught without a valid vignette. After purchase, always keep the receipt in case you need a refund.
