Motorway tolls in Slovenia

Thanks to a correspondent for telling us that it is now necessary to purchase a vignette (windscreen sticker) in order to use motorways in Slovenia. The cost for a car is currently 15 euros for one week, 30 euros for a month or 95 for a year. Here is the official website for information on motorway tolls in Slovenia.

If you drive on Slovenian motorways without a vignette you will be liable to a fine of between 300 and 800 euros - not nice!

Slovenia is becoming more popular as a holiday destination, and more and more people are opting to drive there and avoid the limitations, hidden charges and airport stress associated with flying. If you are driving to Croatia you will need to pass through that small part of Slovenia just to the South-East of Trieste. It is possible to do this on non-motorway roads, although the region is mountainous and the motorway makes the drive easier and quicker. Buy an up-to-date Michelin map and make your own decision.

Here is a comprehensive list of places where you can buy vignettes in Slovenia, and on this page is also a list of retailers in Italy, Germany and Austria, so you can get a sticker before you even arrive in Slovenia.
