Getting Around in Montenegro

By Rail

There is local train service, operating from Bar, through Podgorica and Kolasin and Mojkovac to Bijelo Polje. It is the cheapest way to travel from north to south and vice versa, the quality of service is not on the high level. Timetables are available from Railways of Montenegro.

By Road

As in the rest of Europe, traffic drives on the right. The two major roads are the Adriatic motorway from Igalo to Ulcinj and the motorway linking the north and the south, from Pertovac to Bijelo Polje via Podgorica and Kolasin. Driving at night is not advisable, owing to the poor condition of the roads. There are several tollbooths along the motorways. Foreign-registered vehicles are charged at a higher toll then local vehicles. The toll also depends on the size of vehicle. Drivers should take plenty of euros to pay in cash at the booths. The two-lane Moraca Canyon is a notoriously bad road and should be avoided when possible.

Speed limits are 120 kph (75 mph) on motorways and 100 kph (62 mph) on other roads. Road signs may be poorly marked. Seat belts must be worn at all times. The minimum driving age is 18.


This may be the easiest way to get around Montenegro. Buses are frequent (especially during the summer), safe and are more or less on schedule. Ticket prices within Montenegro are all under €15. Local buses usually have no air-conditioning.

Besides the buses, there are minibuses at bus stations that are usually slightly cheaper, but are actually a faster and more comfortable option.


Main cities have metered taxis. It is possible to negotiate a fare when the meters are not in use. Only use officially marked taxis.

Car Rental

Both international and domestic car rental firms are represented in airports and main towns.

Documentation: International Driving Licence is required. No customs documents are required but car log books, a Green Card, vehicle registration/ownership documents and a locally valid insurance policy are necessary.

Urban Transportation

Podgorica has a local bus system, but taxis can be a more reliable way to get around.
