Next days we're planning some visits starting in Romania and going to Italy by car. The route is: Romania - Hungary - Croatia - Slovenia - Italy (and back).

What things should we be aware of?

As far as I can tell, in Hungary we need a vignette (can be bought online here: https://ematrica.nemzetiutdij.hu/).

Croatia - only highway taxes apply.

Slovenia - we need a vignette, but it is not available online, right? And we need to place the sticker on the windscreen of the car (is there a required/recommended place on the windscreen?) Will we find the vignette at the border of Slovenia or before it, in Croatia?

Italy - only highway tolls.

I think the validity periods of the vignettes will not be a problem since we're staying 9 days, and the hungarian vignette is available for 10 days.

We're planning to stop in Italy, Slovenia and Croatia. Money-wise we're covered if we have Euros in Italy and Slovenia, for Croatia I understand that we can easily pay by card everywhere, and if not we can change euros for kunas, right?

All countries are in the EU, so I expect no problems at the borders.

Advice, things to be aware of?

  • The individual queries are all travel-related, but I voted to close because the posted question is too broad. Jul 21, 2019 at 16:38
  • "What should I be aware of?" is also rather vague. The interface of this site doesn't work at all well with this kind of question, which is really more of a discussion topic than a question. Jul 21, 2019 at 17:26
  • Unfortunately, there is even within the EU a great variation in how you are required to 'equip' a car to be allowed to drive there. Jul 21, 2019 at 18:35
