Thanks to our award-winning levels of customer service, National Car Rental is the preferred option for both businesspeople and holidaymakers in Slovenia who are looking for cheap car hire. Many visitors arrive in Slovenia via the country's major airport hub at Ljubljana. Centrally located, it is the perfect base to explore the entire country with a car rental agreement. Even the most distant locations can be reached from the capital within a couple of hours, as long as you use the fast-moving toll roads. For a cheap way of getting around, avoid the tolls and drive on the regional roads – you end up discovering more of the country that way!
Things to See and Do in Slovenia
Slovenia has a long history and this is very much in evidence with the number of castles and old fortifications that can be seen nearly everywhere. Many of them are a short drive from the main roads and are cheap to enter, if any charge is made at all. In the capital, the so-called Triple Bridge is in fact three separate bridges, which span the Ljubljanica River and are well worth seeing. Ljubljana is full of restaurants and interesting nightlife. The Old Town in Koper, one of Slovenia's few port towns, is also worth seeking out. Finally, Slovenia is famous for its folk dancing and this can be experienced in most towns in the country.
A Holiday by Car in Slovenia
As well as catering for business visitors, our cheap car rental services are ideal for holidaymakers and families. Our car hire includes MPVs and SUVs, as well as prestige cars that are more suited to businesspeople. Touring the country and stopping for a few days in a location that suits you is easy. Many towns have B&Bs as well as upmarket hotels in the larger urban centres. Some farms are also able to accommodate holidaymakers, but it is worth booking this sort of accommodation in advance to avoid disappointment. No touring holiday should miss out on the splendid Triglav National Park, which is a beautiful, protected area. Hiking, fishing and mountaineering are all possible in this region, close to the borders with Austria and Italy.
Famous Road Trips to Take in Slovenia
No car rental in Slovenia would be complete without a road trip starting in Maribor and ending in Lake Bled. Maribor is a stunning, Renaissance-age city in northern Slovenia. Head west along the Drave River toward Dravograd, before turning south. Pick up the route to Lake Bled, a beautiful centre of water activities, via the E61 trunk road. Alternatively, a road trip along the 60-mile Slovenian stretch of the Soca River valley offers some wonderful views. Its fast-flowing waters can be accessed easily by road from Isonzo in the west of the country.
