Although most visitors don't feel the urge to leave the charming Klagenfurt even once, you should at least make one or two excursions into the surrounding area. How about a boat trip on the lake Wörther, a trip to the beautiful church Maria Wörth or a visit to the many castles? Of course you can also cross the border to Slovenia to see the sights there, or even make a short detour to Italy. We have put together some of the most beautiful destinations in the surrounding area for you below:
|Destinations from Klagenfurt||Distance with the rental car||Duration|
|Villach||approx. 45 kilometer||approx. 35 minutes|
|Wolfsberg||approx. 60 kilometer||approx. 40 minutes|
|Tarvis, Italy||approx. 75 kilometer||approx. 55 minutes|
|Velenje, Slovenia||approx. 105 kilometer||approx. 1 hour & 40 minutes|
|Ljubljana, Slovenia||approx. 130 kilometer||approx. 1 hour & 35 minutes|
|Graz||approx. 135 kilometer||approx. 1 hour & 35 minutes|
|Udine, Italy||approx. 165 kilometer||approx. 2 hours|
If you have arrived by public transport and have not found a suitable rental car in the city center, you should definitely take a look at the car rental offer of the Klagenfurt Airport (KLU) located about 5 km from the city center. Sleek small cars, comfortable middle class cars or off-road SUVs should not be a problem here, in order to set off for one of the many baroque buildings built more than 500 years ago in beautiful Klagenfurt.
A cheap rental car offer does not necessarily mean that you are well insured. Therefore, it is essential that the rental car you rent has a fully comprehensive insurance without deductible and the highest possible coverage of the liability insurance. It is up to you whether you would like to take out further insurance policies. We have compiled further information on the topic of insurance on our website.
Due to its proximity to the border, it is worthwhile to make a detour to Slovenia or even Italy by rental car. However, before booking, please check in the rental conditions whether a trip abroad is permitted or whether extra costs will be incurred. You are also welcome to contact our service team, which will help you with your booking. If you are planning a trip abroad, it is best to enter this in the comment field when you make your booking and our service team will clarify this with the local car rental company.
However, since the traffic regulations in Slovenia differ considerably from those in other European countries, we strongly recommend that you familiarize yourself with the national traffic regulations before driving. For your journey with a car up to 3,5 t, you will need a toll sticker with the designation 2A in Slovenia. A 7-day vignette cat. 2A for about 15 € will probably be better than a yearly vignette category 2A for 110 €. The corresponding vignettes can be purchased either at your automobile club or in one of the "Kompas Shops" in the border area. However, if you want to pass through the Karawanken tunnel on your way to Slovenia, an additional fee will be charged again.
If you don't want to waste your valuable travel time looking for a parking space, you should think about renting a navigation system, as it costs only a few euros per day. This will not only make your journey in and around Klagenfurt easier, but also in Slovenia. Especially in Slovenia, only use your rental car to drive to guarded parking garages, as car thefts are also very common here. If your rental car has been stolen, please contact your car rental company directly.
Sitting behind the wheel permanently alone is exhausting! If you would like to put your " passengers behind the wheel", you should decide from the outset for a rental car offer, in which an additional driver is already included. If this is not the case, however, most car rental companies will allow you to book a second driver, whereby you should make sure that he or she does not exceed the minimum or maximum age required by most car rental companies. Letting your passengers drive without a permit can be expensive, especially in the event of a claim, because you have acted with gross negligence at that moment and the insurance company will most likely not pay.
