Introduction of 7-Day Vignettes Will Benefit Slovenian Tourism

Slovenia has put in place official procedures to introduce short-term toll stickers, 7-day vignettes, which will have a positive effect on Slovenian tourism. This decision will be embraced particularly by the neighbouring countries, which present key markets for Slovenian tourism.

Slovenia is working hard to maintain the inflow of tourists from these markets, especially in a time of adverse economic conditions.
Marjan Hribar, M.Sc., Director-General of the Directorate for Tourism at the Ministry of the Economy: "I am pleased with the Government's decision to introduce 7-day vignettes. I also believe this measure will generate more visits to Slovenia. Above all, we are hoping to draw more tourists from European countries. Tourists generally spend short holidays in Slovenia, and there was a real danger that the long-term vignettes would deter people from visiting our country. Of course, given the current situation and the value for money our country offers, we are hoping to see tourists stay in Slovenia even longer than they used to in the past. The introduction of 7-day vignettes is at the same time an acknowledgement from other ministries that tourism is indeed an important segment of the Slovenian economy."
Dimitrij Piciga, M.Sc., Director of the Slovenian Tourist Board: "As far as the economic viability of this decision goes, I believe that the introduction of weekly vignettes will have a positive effect on tourism. I agree it is the right step towards reducing the negative impacts of the global financial crisis on Slovenian tourism performance and towards consolidating the position of Slovenia as a European tourist destination in a time of growing competitiveness."
