    Slovenia Car Hire Fleet Options

    Arguably the most progressive all the former Yugoslav states, Slovenia is a land of idyllic lakes, traditional spas, fine wines and majestic mountains. Nestled between Austria, Hungary, Italy and Croatia, the country is blessed with an abundance of soaring vistas and pristine panoramas, making it one of the most photogenic places in the whole of Europe. A lush, fertile country, Slovenia boasts an intense natural beauty that's greatly appreciated by a population that takes the environment very seriously indeed. And as one of Europe’s greenest nations – (40% is covered by mountains and over half is forested) – it’s not surprising to learn that Slovenia is awash with outdoor activities with an almost limitless number of fresh-air pursuits available. Ljubljana, Slovenia’s small but sophisticated capital, is a vibrant place with a lofty fairytale castle that gazes down on the city's engaging blend of Baroque and Habsburg architecture below. One of Europe’s best-kept secrets is Slovenian wine, which is made in the three regions of Podravje, Posavje and Primorje where visitors touring in their car hire in Slovenia are positively encouraged to drop in and taste the wines before buying. And despite being less than 30 miles long, the country’s limited but very picturesque coastline is rich in history, Venetian architecture, fantastic seafood and some of the Adriatic’s most popular swimming areas, particularly around Piran, Slovenia’s most striking seaside resort.

    Why opt for a Small Car Hire in Slovenia

    Small Car HireBoasting a thriving cultural scene, lovely Ljubljana is home to many of Slovenia's key tourist attractions, including a fascinating old quarter called Staro Mesto that comprises three long squares lined with many beautiful buildings. The twin-towered St. Nicholas Cathedral in the centre of town is notable for its interior of pink marble, white stucco and exquisite baroque frescoes. Old cities like Ljubljana require a special kind of car to get around, which is why we recommend Auto Europe's wide-ranging and very low-cost Mini and Economy category cars designed for two or four people, respectively.
    Popular Small Car Hire Models: Hyundai I10, Ford Fiesta, Opel Corsa, Nissan Micra, Skoda Citigo and many more.

    Why opt for a Mid-size Car Hire in Slovenia

    Mid-Size Car HireSlovenia’s most popular natural attraction is Lake Bled, conveniently located off the E61 motorway north-west of Ljubljana. An important part of the country's heritage, Lake Bled is a major draw for tourists who travel from all over the world to visit its tiny island and delightful 17th-century pilgrimage church dedicated to the Assumption of Mary. Lake Bled is the centrepiece of the Triglav National Park, a beautiful area of protected land covering some 340 square-miles in the Julian Alps. Visiting the more mountainous parts of Slovenia requires one of Auto Europe's Compact or Intermediate cars, which have space for four or five people plus a couple of large suitcases.
    Popular Mid-size Car Hire Models: Opel Astra, Toyota Auris, Hyundai 140, Ford Mondeo, Mazda 6, Ford Focus, VW Golf and many more.

    Why opt for a Large-Size Car Hire in Slovenia

Located in the north-eastern corner of the country, and easy to reach from Ljubljana along the E57 motorway, it is the oldest recorded place in Slovenia having been inhabited since the late Stone Age. The road to Ptuj runs by many interesting places en route from the capital, including Maribor, the second-largest city in the country. To best appreciate the many wonders of this exhilarating journey, book one of Auto Europe's Large category cars, with their superior engines and spacious interiors with capacity for up to five people travelling with three suitcases.
