Trip Report Slovenia - Beware of governmental rip-off at border

Jump to last reply

When you pass into the Slovenian border, you must pay a special tariff and buy a vignette which gets affixed to car windshield. You buy this at a gas station prior to entering the toll road. The tariff is 7.50 euro for a one week stay and goes up a bit for longer stays.

However, there are no signs telling unsuspecting visitors that they must purchase a vignette or that they will be subject to a heavy fine without procuring the same. Immediately after entering the border there are patrol cars set up to catch those who were unaware. Many cars were lined up while we sat there and all were fined 160 euros. This is done purposely in order to collect a high fee. The tariff could easily have been charged at the border patrol. This is not a very welcoming sign for those who want to visit this country. Beware! Slovenia has much to learn about tourism.
