When your visit to Slovenia starts with flying in, you will land on Slovenia´s main international airport Ljubljana or in slovenian aerodrom Jožeta Pučnika.If you didn´t pre-book a transfer to your destination, there are a few options available. The quickest is to take taxi stationed right in front of the exit from airport building. Of course like everywhere on the world this way of traveling is the most expensive. Using one of the taxis from airport taxi stand to the capital Ljubljana, which is some 25 km away, will cost you some 40 eur.Much cheaper are low cost taxi companies as Airtrail that offer fixed price 25 eur to Ljubljana city. Problem is just you need to prebook them otherwise you will wait some 30 minutes on your cab, which is not something you want after a long flight.
Even cheaper are shuttle companies standing on parking place across the main terminal. They offer shared ride transfer to the capital Ljubljana for 8-9 eur, what is a fair price, specialy because some of the companies offer door to door service per flat rate. Of course ther is also a downside, like always. Sometimes you can wait for your shuttle bus for a full hour and if you travel in company with two others it is cheaper to book low cost taxi for 25 eur. That will cost you less and driver will wait for you in front of the exit, with your name on small board, ready to go
Third option is public transport. There is no train from the airport, only bus. Bus drives regulary from 5:00h in morning till 20:00h every full hour. Ticket to Ljubljana will cost you 4.5 eur and yourney last approximately 45 minutes.Tickets are purchased on bus, all buses are clean and safe. Checked personaly :)
What ever you gona choose, people in Slovenia are always friendly to visitors and likewise drivers. In Slovenia there is no such thing as obligatory tip. However the habit is to tip at some 10% and please look in the eyes when talking to or shaking hand. That is something slovenians pay great attention. Not looking in the eyes of your counterpart means you´re not honest. Honesty and nature is something people in this small but unbelivable beautiful country value the most.
