Top tips for hiring a car in Montenegro

  • Independent travelers will almost certainly want to rent a car in Montenegro, as many locations, like the Lustica Peninsula, have no public transport links at all. Popular road trip destinations include the Budva Riviera, Piva, Skadar National Park, and Durmitor National Park, as well as the iconic Bay of Kotor. The coastal road and the mountains to the north are popular spots for self-drivers.
  • The roads in Montenegro are mostly paved, meaning that the majority of drivers can rent a normal two-wheel drive for the duration of their trip. Those who are planning to do lots of driving in the mountains may wish to rent a four-wheel drive vehicle for added stability, or, at the very least, a car with a manual transmission for better management of steep, switchback roads.
  • In Montenegro, children under the age of five are required by law to be seated in an age-appropriate child seat in the rear of the vehicle. Any child up to 12 years old seated in the front seat must also be in a suitable restraint system. Rental agencies can provide baby and booster seats upon request, with fees starting at around 6 € ($6.70) per day through an agency like Hertz.
  • Most rental agencies will allow drivers to rent a car in Montenegro and travel across international borders into other EU countries, but travel to some Eastern European nations, such as Greece, Poland, and Romania, is usually prohibited. Always check with the agency in advance, and expect to pay a cross-border travel fee of around 55 € ($61.50) with a company like Avis.

  • What is driving like in Montenegro?

    Roads in Montenegro are usually in very good condition, the main problem for drivers being switchback mountain passes and narrow or cobbled streets. Traffic in urban centers and along the coast can be quite congested, especially in the peak summer season. Driving is on the right-hand side of the road, and it is important to note that there is a zero-tolerance policy on drinking and driving.

  • How old do you have to be to hire a car in Montenegro?

    Drivers will need to be at least 21 years old to rent a car in Montenegro, and will need to have held their domestic driving license for 1-2 years. Many agencies such as Sixt charge a young driver’s fee for renters ages 21 to 23; at Sixt, this fee is 32 € ($36) per rental. Most agencies will accept a domestic driver’s license and passport, provided these are printed in the Roman alphabet.

  • How much does petrol cost in Montenegro?

    Petrol stations in Montenegro usually stay open from 8 am to 8 pm and are plentiful in urban areas and along the coast. In the more remote rural regions, they can be hard to find, meaning that it’s important to fuel up whenever possible. Prices are comparable to other European countries: expect to pay around 1.30 € ($1.45) for a liter of petrol and 1.25 € ($1.40) for diesel. This translates to 4.91 € ($5.48) for a gallon of petrol and $5.29 for a gallon of diesel.

  • What are the speed limits in Montenegro?

    There are no highways in Montenegro, and speed limits are determined according to whether the road passes through an urban or rural area. In developed zones, drivers should stick to a maximum speed of 50 km/h (31 mph) and in rural areas, 80 km/h (50 mph), unless otherwise posted.
