      Ferry from Trieste to Durres

      Albania Jun 13, 2015 at 1:25 PM

      Is the below from Oct. 30, 2006 still valid:

      The procedure in Trieste is similar than in Durres: Before entering the ferry it’s important to get the "White Card” with a boarding number. This card will be issued in the ferry line´s office near the vessel. It will be collected together with your passport while boarding and returned to you when the ferry reaches Durres. You also will get a sheet of paper with a number for your vehicle. You need this for the customs in Albania!

      Arriving in Durres you leave the ferry and will be checked by the customs. On the right side of the check point are a few offices where you have to show the sheet of paper with your car number. If you don´t have a "Green Card" then this is the place to obtain a temporary insurance. You will receive another paper, which you need to return when leaving the country. Don´t lose it! Next will be the entrance fee of 10 €. Somebody will show up and collect it. Last step will be a passport check at the gate. This is all no problem. The officers are friendly but do not speak English or German.

      Car Rental in Albania and Montenegro

      Albania Jan 11, 2015 at 12:20 AM

      I am planning a road trip to Montenegro and Albania (with a possibly detour to Macedonia) in August with my daughter. The plan is to fly in to Dubrovnik and home from Corfu. We will stay close to the coast in both countries for sun and swinnimg, but also plan to visit Ohrid, Berat and Gjirokaster

      I do not drive myself, and my daughter is 23 years old and have had her driver’s license for less than one year.

      1. We would like to rent a car in Kotor, Montenegro and return it in Saranda, Albania, before entering the ferry to Corfu. Can anyone recommend a car rental company which will allow us to take the car to all countries mentioned above, and where the driver is allowed to have had the license for less than a year?
      2. I have had no luck in finding Saranda as a drop off point for the car searching several big car rental companies. Should I search for another city in southern Albania instead?
      3. Another option, less preferably, is to rent one car in Kotor and drop it the same place, and go by bus to Tirana and rent a new car there. But I have only found car rental companies (Avis, Hertz, Sixt) which demand the driver to have had the license for more than a year. Can anyone recommend a car rental company in Kotor who allows the driver to have had the license for less than a year?
      4. Can anyone recommend a car rental company in Tirana who allows the driver to have had the license for less than a year and where we can drop the car near Saranda? And preferably one who allows us to take the car to Macedonia.

      We have not yet booked the flight tickets, so going home from Tirana can be an option if so makes the car rental situation easier.

      Since the questions regard both Albania and Montenegro I am posting the same post in both forums.

      Thanks from Lena
