Montenegro Driving Advice and Car Hire Info

Driving In Montenegro
Officially you need an International Driving permit to drive in Montenegro though I’ve driven there without one. Roads are generally in good condition but drivers can be reckless and overtake on bends etc. Dangerous areas for road travel include a road through the Moraca Canyon, north of Podgorica. This twisting, two-lane road is especially overcrowded in the summer, and is the site of frequent rockslides. In the winter, the Moraca Canyon and northern parts of Montenegro are covered with snow, which may slow traffic and make the road hazardous. If you want to visit Albania from Montenegro check with the car rental company that you’re allowed to do that. Driving in Albania is more dangerous than Montenegro so the possibility of accidents is higher.
