Compare car rent

If you know in advance which places you're going to visit, you can find out online if and where there are ATM's where you can use your MasterCard and Cirrus or Visa to withdraw money.


In both countries you will be able to manage with English and German, if you don't stray off the beaten path too much.

Price level

The average income in Slovenia is a little below that of Portugal and Greece. The price level is oddly incongruous with that fact. Around 90 percent of Austrian prices are normal, not because that is appropriate, but because the country identifies with Austria. Expect to pay 30-50 euro for a double room.

Pay attention: Even if you explicitly ask for the price of a double room, Slovenians have the unpleasant habit of giving the price per person. That is confusing, because half of the price sound a lot more realistic than what they in fact charge.

The price level in Hungary is much lower: 10-15 euro per night for a room in a private Bed & Breakfast.

The same difference exists for food. A modest meal in Slovenia will cost you around 15 euro per person. In Hungary a three-course dinner, including drinks, coffee and tip, will set you back about 5 euros.

Plan your trip to Slovenia online

Through online reservation systems like À la Carte Vacations you can book airline tickets, hotels, rental cars and holiday houses. You can build a fly-drive itinerary with maximum flexibility, book a flight plus a hotel hotel for a night or weekend. Without the limitations of package deals from travel organisations and most times for a much better price.
