Safety and security



The threat from terrorism is low.



Sensible precautions should be taken when carrying money in busy tourist areas.

Road Safety


If you plan to drive, you will need a driving licence with a photo on it, which means that if you do not have the new style EU driving licence you will need an International Driving Permit.


If you intend to hire a car and drive it into Slovenia you must declare this to the car hire company first, as you must have adequate car insurance cover.


Heavy on-the-spot fines are in place for traffic offences and jaywalking.  A new Road Safety Act came into effect on 1 January 2005.  This gives the police greater powers to stop drivers and levy on the spot fines, including greater penalties for speeding, driving under the influence of alcohol and for using mobile phones without properly installed wireless headsets (bluetooth).


Local laws and customs


You should carry a copy of your passport at all times as a form of identification.
