Best places to visit in Slovenia

  • Ljubljana: The capital city of Slovenia has a lot to offer. A hub of culture and history, Ljubljana boasts tons of attractions you’ll want to explore. You’ll definitely want to see Ljubljana Castle—while the structure itself is impressive, the panoramic view of the city with the mountain backdrop is jaw-dropping.  
  • Lake Bled: As one of the top tourist attractions in the country, Lake Bled has plenty to offer visitors. Come for the gorgeous views and stay to rent a kayak and get out onto the water. This is the perfect place for an escape into nature. Relax, go swimming and hiking, and revel in one of Europe’s most beautiful destinations.  
  • Piran: This coastal city has it all. With beautiful beaches nearby, town walls from the 7th century, and unique architecture that will make you feel like you’re in a fairy tale, Piran is a town you won’t want to miss. 

Summer in Slovenia

There are tons of things to do with your car rental in Slovenia in the summer. You’ll want to hike or bike through the mountains, go kayaking on Lake Bled or even go white-water rafting to explore more of the country. If you’re less of an outdoor adventurer and more of a relaxer, head to one of the coastal cities like Piran or Koper and hit the beach.

Car delivered to my hotel. Very convenient.

Pick up in the city centre was efficient and helpful. On returning the car to the airport we were surprised that the office staff did not want to check the car before we signed the paperwork and left. This is standard practice so that both parties agree no damage has been done - either during the trip or in the car park. After we insisted, the girl there reluctantly checked it but was obviously annoyed.

I used Flizzr (Sixt) - Cheap, good comprehensive insurance offered, and the staff were brilliant in Ljubljana airport base.


Sixt were great even when our flight was delayed by 2 hours (only 30 Euro surcharge and we arrived close to midnight) and I left my wallet/glasses in the car after drop-off (they sent someone to go and find them in the open car parking lot).


Slovenia has the best driving roads in Europe, and possibly even better than New Zealand. You need to hire a car and experience Slovenia's stunning roads and scenery. I would definitely recommend!!!

Had great experience on my trip to Slovenia on 7/22. Rented a small car for 5 day trip, got free upgrade as my choice was not available. Car was Renault Clio with just few km driven. All I can say is that everything worked out smoothly. Fully insured and service 24h/7 (that I didn't need). Service at the counter was excellent. No flaws for me, just 5 stars

I was hesitant to rent from Sixt after reading some poor reviews but they offered the best pricing. I was very pleased with the entire rental experience. Courteous man checked me in and another very helpful man went over the car with me and helped set the GPS to English and instructed me how to use it.


The car was clean and new. Very glad I decided on the GPS as it worked so much better than maps on my phone and is safer.


I placed the keys in the after hours drop box when checking in for my early flight. I was only charged what was agreed on beforehand as there was no damage to the car.


The only thing I would recommend is not paying for the full tank of petrol. I drove to several areas of Slovenia and used less than half a tank.

SIXT is my go to rental agency but was hesitant to use this location based on the negative reviews but ended up having a pleasant experience. I was assisted by Mr. Rok who was very patient and helpful- I was given a basically brand new premium SUV as booked. Make sure you pay the cross border fee if taking the vehicle to another country. For people getting hit with damage claims, document and photograph the car before driving off.


Since some of the reviews were quite shocking, I felt like I had to share my positive experience I had renting a car here in June 2022!


The servers of Sixt Europe were apparently down on the day we wanted to pick up our online reservation, so they had to fill out a new one by hand with the approximate price I told them. For the inconvenience, we got a lovely free upgrade (an almost brand new Cupra Fermentor) with no damages.


Upon returning, everything went very smooth, the rep saw that the car was still in great condition. However, I did not get a signed document or anything else to proof the condition I had returned the car in, so I had to specifically ask for it. I am not sure whether the guy simply forgot about it, but considering some of the reviews I would definitely suggest to get a signed copy of the vehicle check-in form, so no new damages can be charged later on.

The entire process was smooth, the car was fantastic, They we’re flexible with the time. Anna the staff from sixt was very friendly.

The place unfortunately did not have a vehicle, I didn't reserve in advance, however, the clerk was kind and professional and assisted me with securing an Internet connection, my data roaming expired on the spot. Reserve your car in advance here.

Raghav S.

Had a great experience renting a car from Sixt at the Ljubljana train station. The employees were helpful, honored the agreement, and also gave us a free upgrade to a brand new SUV.

I have rented from this location 4 times, all without problem, in fact the experience was really great, helpful staff, cars were fine, location for me was key. I always do a video walk around with the car when I pick it up, in the light or with flash on from my phone. It's fast easy and avoids disagreements as the videos are location and time stamped by Google or Apple. When I return the car I do the same thing, walk around film every side in detail, again date, time and location stamp. Once when I rented a car from a different company at Malpensa the video saved me claims as I saw the unmentioned scratch when I picked the car up, it was clear in the video and they did try, but failed. Far too often people (both renters and car company workers) miss damage and assume when they notice it, the damage was done by last user. Free phone video changes this and saved everyone trouble.

Had a great and smooth experience here. Booked Audi A6 and really got suggested the very same vehicle which was surprising as long as rental companies usually provide something worse in fact. As long as the Audi was station wagon, I asked for sedan replacement and got literally brand new BWM 3 sport package with only 5000 km. Gorgeous fresh car, enjoyed it very much.


Returned it with no damage and got my 1500 eur deposit refunded to credit card in 4 days. I was a little bit nervous because they don't block the amount on card, they charge it together with rental cost, but it went smooth.


Just a usual precausion: check for damage carefully before getting out of garage. I always use flashlight and check surface thoroughly.

Was not entirely sure about renting a car here because of some negative reviews I have seen about Sixt Ljubljana Airport, but.. I have to say I had the most pleasant experience with this renting place!

Here are some major points I enjoyed:


+ Pick-up did not take more than 10min

+ Extremely friendly, professional and efficient staff

+ We got a free upgrade from Renault Clio to a new Seat Leon FR (adaptive cruise control, apple car play, rear camera and everything that anyone would need in a car and more)

+ Drop-off was extremely smooth, probably took less than 5min


5/5, totally recommend this place!

It's just simple and good quality car hire. Turn up, no pressure selling just give you a car (even a free upgrade for me); when I returned they gave a quick check for 3 minutes and let me go, again really easy and polite.

Jonas V.
