Best places to visit in Slovenia

  • Ljubljana: Ljubljana is one of Europe’s smallest capital cities, but that doesn’t stop it from being a big hit with tourists. It prides itself as one of the greenest cities in the world and boasts a growing culinary scene to go alongside an exciting mix of cultural traditions.  
  • Lake Bled: Lake Bled is Slovenia’s most popular tourist destination, with the Alps as a backdrop to a picturesque town, replete with a medieval castle. Alongside the beautiful views, it offers opportunities for hiking, biking, watersports and canyoning.  
  • Koper: Koper is the country’s fifth-largest city, and is located on the Adriatic coast, just a short drive away from Trieste over the Italian border, as well as the Croatian border to the south. Its architecture mirrors its geography, with both Venetian and Gothic-inspired buildings and squares.   

Summer 2021 in Slovenia

Along the Adriatic coast, Slovenia offers all the benefits of its neighbours Italy and Croatia, with lovely beaches, fantastic seafood and picturesque resorts. Summer also offers a great opportunity to hire a car and get out exploring the beautiful lakes, mountains and natural parks of Slovenia’s dramatic landscape.

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 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.

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.

We are an American family who spent two weeks in Ljubljana over the holidays. We rented an electric car from Sixt’s downtown location, and worked primarily with Jure Becan. We had never driven an electric car, never driven abroad. We needed clarification on everything from charging, parking, directions, billing—and Jure Becan helped us every step of the way, including nights, weekends, and holidays. We highly recommend Sixt, and Jure Becan in particular.

Great experience of Rent-a-car service, intuitive application, kind and helpful service. The car was new, without any scratches or damage. Definitely would recommend. The price matched the agreed price .
