A lot of tourists ask this question, is there Uber in Slovenia? Long story short, no, there is no Uber or Lyft services yet in Slovenia. Debates about Uber in Slovenia have been ongoing for years. The Slovenian minister for transportation wanted to bring Uber to the market back in September 2016 reasoning that Uber services complement the existing transport system and lower the need for cars in city centers. Already at that time, local taxi companies pointed out that allowing Uber to operate as in other places, would be unfair competition to existing taxi services. A taxi car in Slovenia needs to have a measuring device installed and checked twice a year. Taxi car also needs to be inspected every 6 months, plus it pays premium insurance for the car and passengers. On top of that, every taxi driver needs to pass a test to get a license and an additional tourist exam in the city of Ljubljana. Nothing of this applies to Uber drivers in Slovenia, which would make them have an advance of a few thousand euros before they even start working.

  Even though there is no Uber or Lyft service in Ljubljana, or any other city in Slovenia, local taxi and shuttle companies will provide you with very good service for a price that will be similar or even lower than you pay for Uber ride at your home. An alternative to Lyft and Uber in Slovenia are cheaper taxi solutions. Private transfers to or from Slovenia are available for a price somewhere on the same level as Uber price at your home. Taxis operating in the biggest city in Slovenia, that is the capital Ljubljana, will charge you for a ride in the city from 5- 10 eur.

Another option in Slovenia is shared rides with Goopti or Nomago. From the very popular Venice airport to Ljubljana you can get a seat for as low as 20-30 eur. There is quite big competition in this field in Slovenia and with a bit of googling you can get really good deal.
