Mountain passes closed in winter  (4 Answers)

Can someone tell me which roads/mountain passes in Montenegro are closed in winter due to snow? And which ones are usually kept snow free. I'm talking in particular about Tresnjevik (road between Matesevo and Andrijevica), the road between Kolasin-Savnik and the smaller (eastern) connection between Podgorica and Matesevo (not the Moraca canyon road).

Thanks in advance!

Dobrota vs Kotor  (3 Answers)

Hi, we'll be in Bay of Kotor for 3 nights in early October. We'd like to stay in an area where there are restaurants and shops within walking distance. Is Dobrota a community or town with services or is it residential only? Or would we be better off to stay in Kotor. We'll have a car and take day trips from there but would like to stay in an area with some amenities is walking distance. Any suggestions on day trips would be appreciated. We're a family of 3 adults and love hiking, beach, snorkeling, small towns and culture.
Cheers

accommodation  (2 Answers)

Hello. I will be visiting Budva and Kotor next week. I wonder how I can find locals that rent their rooms. (sobe) Typically when I am at the bus station, locals used to approach me in other ex-Yugoslav countries but it is been a while I haven't visited the region. I wonder if same is valid for Montenegro. Thank you.

taxi / bus from Herceg-novi to dubrovnick  (3 Answers)

Anyone have recommendations on taxi or bus from Herceg-Novi to Dubrovnick or Cavtat in early Oct? Is the border crossing a problem now, how long are lines and do taxis/shuttles or buses get to skip lines? Is there a best time of day to cross. We're used to the Tijuana, Mexico border crossing into California and that can take hours sometimes

Car Rental in Albania and Montenegro  (3 Answers)

I am planning a road trip to Montenegro and Albania (with a possibly detour to Macedonia) in august with my daughter. The plan is to fly in to Dubrovnik and home from Corfu. We will stay close to the coast in both countries for sun and swinnimg, but also plan to visit Ohrid, Berat and Gjirokaster

I do not drive myself, and my daughter is 23 years old and have had her driver’s license for less than one year.

1. We would like to rent a car in Kotor, Montenegro and return it in Saranda, Albania, before entering the ferry to Corfu. Can anyone recommend a car rental company which will allow us to take the car to all countries mentioned above, and where the driver is allowed to have had the license for less than a year?
2. I have had no luck in finding Saranda as a drop off point for the car searching several big car rental companies. Should I search for another city in southern Albania instead?
3. Another option, less preferably, is to rent one car in Kotor and drop it the same place, and go by bus to Tirana and rent a new car there. But I have only found car rental companies (Avis, Hertz, Sixt) which demand the driver to have had the license for more than a year. Can anyone recommend a car rental company in Kotor who allows the driver to have had the license for less than a year?
4. Can anyone recommend a car rental company in Tirana who allows the driver to have had the license for less than a year and where we can drop the car near Saranda? And preferably one who allows us to take the car to Macedonia.

We have not yet booked the flight tickets, so going home from Tirana can be an option if so makes the car rental situation easier.

Since the questions regard both Albania and Montenegro I am posting the same post in both forums.

Thanks from Lena

Things we should not miss in Montenegro  (5 Answers)

We have a rental car and 4 full days in Montenegro. We have rented a small apt in Kotor to use as our base for exploring the area. What are the places we should not miss?? Are there some great seafood places to eat at? We love the beaches and want to explore near the coast and coastal towns as much as possible. Thanks for your advice!

Montenegro in December/January?  (1 Answer)

Hi everyone,

My parents and I are hoping for a trip starting in Vienna and driving down to Montenegro, probably stopping for a few days in both Slovenia and Croatia as well, in late December or early January. Are areas around the coast of Montenegro expensive/crowded this time of year? It's the holiday season, I know, but I'm thinking it's more of a summer destination?

We are used to the cold but does it get unbearable and/or rainy and grey during the winter?

Any other thoughts or suggestions you want to add are welcome :)

Thanks!

10 day itinerary recommendation for montenegro & dubrovnik  (8 Answers)

Hey ppl,
Hi. I and couple of my buddies are planning on going for a 10 day trip to Montenegro and Dubrovnik, Croatia. I have done a lot of research over it. Kotor, Perast and Cetinje seem to be interesting to us and dubrovnik in croatia. We will be flying from Mumbai, India to Podgorica, Montenegro or Dubrovnik, Croatia depending upon the airfare. Anyone been to Montenegro & Dubrovnik suggest us what is the best way to travel between Dubrovnik and Montenegro (the place where we will be visiting) and how much would it cost? We are thinking of 7 days in Montenegro and 3 days in Croatia. We are looking for relaxation, experiencing the cafes & good food, sightseeing and little bit of night life. Can you suggest us which are good places(towns or cities) to visit and what to do there and what is the best way to travel between them? We have limited budget :). Also, since its a small country how many places should we have our base at and where? Can any of you'll share your itinerary and experiences. That would be great.
Also, any recommendation for accommodation?
Thanks & Cheers,
Mru

10 day itinerary recommendations?  (8 Answers)

We are a group of 3 girls going to Bosnia and Montenegro for 10 days end May/ start June.

I'm just starting to research places to go so thought I'd ask for some inspiration on here!

We are in our late 20s and want to have a mix of city/town & off the beaten track, sightseeing and activities such as hiking etc. We will be able to hire a car and we will be coming from the UK.

Thanks!

Too ambitious? Lake Skadar and Cetinje/Lovcen all in 1 day  (4 Answers)

Hi, we will be traveling to Montenegro next spring. We will also be traveling to other countries in the region and due to time constraints, have 1 day to do the sights along the Bay, and another 1 day to do something else. For the 2nd day, we really hope to be able to get to Skadar Lake and then onwards to Cetinje/Lovcen. Is it possible to do it all in 1 day?

Also, if anyone knows of a reliable montenegrin tour agency who is able to organise this day trip for us, it will be great.

Thanks

Safety and car hire  (8 Answers)

Hi all,

Just decided to go to Montenegro for a few weeks starting 7Th October and would appreciate any advice you could give me.

I am really only interested in seeing the nature and natural wonders of the country. I wish to RUN and hike trails in the mountains, hills, valleys and lakes.... Any advice from people who are into these things ESP appreciated.

I am solo traveller, female of 51... Are the locals pretty decent towards travellers in general and is it relatively acceptable and safe for a woman to go do these things solo in this country?

Are authorities generally decent there?

I'm considering car hire so I can travel to interesting areas of nature....is it a simple enough process there and are the costs reasonable?

I travelled for two months solo with a car in Morocco recently with no problems but I didn't run or hike alone there... I have an upcoming ultra marathon sp I must train on this sort of country.

If anyone happened to have a contact of a local who has the knowledge and may enjoy running or hiking some trails with me that would be awesome.

Ok that's all for now...

Thanks in advance

Jan

Border crossing by bus from Croatia  (2 Answers)

I will be taking the bus from Dubrovnik into Montenegro. I'm just wondering what the procedure is at the border. Do we give our passports to someone on the bus or do we get off and get processed through the border individually? I'm just wondering because I've never taken a bus across an international border before.

Thanks!

Best place to stay for both seaside and mountains  (5 Answers)

Hello!

I will be travelling with my girlfriend in the next week to Montenegro. We would like to stay somewhere with access to both the seaside and the mountains, as we'd like to visit as much as we can during our 10 day visit.

We will be going by car so access shouldnt be that problematic, as I think distances are not too big, but distances on map dont always speak the truth.

So any recommendations on a place to stay? Ideally it would be on a beach somewhere, clothing optional for sunbathing and swimming, and would allow for day visits to canyons, glacial lakes and other natural wonders...

cheers!
